So a few months ago me and LuAnn had some discussions, mostly joking with my wife about having kids and how I thought she would never be into the idea of having a little crazy one running around. She finally said those magical words that my ears thought they would have never heard two months ago! It has been an idea that I always wanted somewhere in my future but never thought it would become a reality. After a very short time of trying "a few weeks" we were in disbelief at the test that read were fricken pregant! Shock mostly ran through our minds but then became a reality when we arrived at our first ultrasound and saw the little round fella's body with it's funny big head and little chicken wing arms and a fast beating heart about 170 BPS! I was the happiest guy in the world knowing our baby was alive and well. Since then we have been embracing the reality that our lives will changer forever. Yes they will be so tough, yes they will really put us to the test and see what we are made of but we will triumph. With the little knowledge of the full extent of our decision I am so thrilled and excited to welcome one of our very own into this crazy thing we call the world. Obviously whether it is a boy or girl I will surely have a strider bike ready to go before he/she can walk. Every day my life is blessed and I just can't imagine my life any differently where I am right now and I am ecstatic for the months to come! LuAnn has been absolutely great so far, she has had some nausea and most of all the ugly side effects but on the moderate side of the scale and I am very thankful for that. The second trimester has been really good with little to no side effects. She is beginning to feel little things move in her belly the last few days and it's not officially kicking and screaming yet but as the days come we are more and more excited. We bought a crib last week which was a little early but hey, we're excited parents, ok well I may be a little more excited than LuAnn but I can't blame her since she is holding all the mechanical gears and production that created this little one in the first place. Few more weeks and we know if it's a boy or girl and I couldn't be more excited! The sign!!!!
