So, I've been sitting on this for a bit. Even a few months ago, this was in my mind.
Yeah.. Big news. Life as I know it is turning upside down, inside out, and going every which-way. Consider it a glimpse into my personal life. :)
Ladies and gentlemen, here it is..
I'm having a baby. Well, not me, really. I offered to my wife, but yeah, no. She's having the baby.
There will be a mini-Raul on the Earth in a couple of months. Brace yourselves. :P
This will be my first child, and yes, I really have no idea what I'm in for.
(I verified with my wife that we checked off the box for 'already potty trained' and such, so I'm sure we'll be good to go.) I have a sneaky suspicion that my days of lounging in bed on the weekends until 9:30 or 10:00 are coming to an end.
So, we've been doing all of the various 'new parent' things- building a nursery, taking some classes, etc. We've got most of the stuff we need (or think we need, at least).
We're fortunate to have a lot of family in the area, and there's a lot of wisdom and experience to lean on there.
And, with that, I'm off to an ultrasound. :)
