So many meaningful things happening lately: Red Sox win AL East (finally), I find a job back in Nebraska, and of course my wife is in the last month of her pregnancy.

I will start with the least but all so important red sox. Watching the Yankees lose in extra innings last night to the Orioles was a beautiful thing. Bring on the Angels!

If you have not heard,...yes it is official...bec and I will be moving back to the good life soon. Finding a job sealed the deal a few weeks ago. Now we spend our free time planning a baby + move...sounds impossible but by faith and prayers anything is possible.

My wife is still as beautiful as the day I married her. I tell her she is so cute with that "baby belly" but she doesn't believe me. She is doing so well. So far we have went to a breastfeeding and labor class. We are learning so much but am sure we will learn the most come October 23rd.

Keep an eye on our blog these next couple never know what might be coming next. wink, wink.

34 Weeks!

We're at 34 weeks and growing strong! Yesterday we had our check up with Dr. McCrary and all is well. My weight, blood pressure are all great. Baby's heart-beat is 150 nice and strong. Dr.McCrary said we won't have a big baby, but it'll be a nice size. We have nothing to worry about. YeeHaw!

We signed up for 2 classes at the hospital. Sunday night we have a Breastfeeding class and next weekend we have a Prepared Childbirth class. We were lucky to get into the classes as they were filling up quickly and the next classes were closer and closer to our due date. It's amazing how time is flying by and how baby will be here very shortly. We still have some preparation to do and items to get so we're ready for that big day.

My husband took me on a shopping spree yesterday. How awesome is He? As the season is changing and the cool weather is here, we realized I didn't have any Fall clothes. I had 2 pairs of pants and 2 long sleeve shirts. None of my jackets fit around me any more. We hit up the GAP, Motherhood, and JCPenny. Now I should be set for the Fall. I can't explain how great it feels to wear jeans that actually fit! I am a now a Good Lookin Mama!

We also decided last night to take a spur of the moment Baby Moon to Portland, ME before we're no longer a family of 2 but of 3. We're staying at the Wild Iris Inn B&B ( tonight and will spend the day up there tomorrow. We'll be in the Lupine room which has a private bath en suite. The private bath will be great for my night time journeys to the toilet. Baby still likes to push against Mama's bladder-the lil' darlin. We'll post an update of our Baby Moon when we return. It's suppose to be a beautiful fall day!

Baby Shower - 9/8/2007

First off...Guys usually do not partake in baby shower festivities but in recent years for some reason this has become a trend. People I guess refer to them as " Jack and Jill" parties. So it was a little weird for all of the guys going in the first place but once we got there it was a lot of fun.

The theme of our shower was "Baby Olympics". We all got into teams and competed in various events. Becca, Amber (bec's sister), Jacob (bec's brother-in-law) and I's team was appropriately named "Babylicioius". However, our awesome name was not enough to lead us to victory. But we did have fun competing in various events including: diaper mystery (name the chewed/spit out candy bar in the diaper...very gross looking by the way), baby feud, and baby gift bingo. Our friend amy did a great job organizing everything. Thanks Amy!

Of course we racked up on baby gifts. Some of our favs included a car seat (+extra base for grandma/babysitter to put in car :) , and also a onesie (did I spell that right...i have a long way to go as a dad I think but i'm ready to learn) with a picture of bec and I on the front saying "This is Why I'm Hot". funny, and also a great diaper bag in which the model is sporting for everyone at the party (see above picture) .

We are very blessed to have a family here in Boston. It was amazing sitting at our shower seeing all of our friends come together that we have grown to love over these past years. Thanks for the fun time guys.

Daddy News

This is a first blog ever...can you see me? ok. I think this is working.

So you are probably dying to know how this daddy is doing throughout this pregnancy...yes I said it daddy...I still go through weeks and kind of forget that the day is fast approaching and then there are other weeks when I am like, "Holy Crap, I am going to be a dad!"

It has been so great watching Becca get more and more of a belly. My favorite is her belly button starting to poke out. I call it my "baby microphone" talk into it so the baby can hear you. My wife is the most amazing woman I know and am excited to experience the gift of life with her.

More to come...that is if all of this is posted and my time was not wasted.
