The Mommy

So my wife is now in her second trimester. I think that's how you spell trimester. There is probably a hyphen in there somewhere, but I'm sure that someone will let me know sooner or later if that's wrong. Anyway, I'm glad that the morning sickness and all that stuff is over. I hated to see her feeling like crap and not being able to do much. We seem to be over that now though. She is much more active.

I'm going to be a father

What can I say except, oh my gosh. I just went to the midwife with my wife to get the first look at our future child. This was the coolest day of my life to date. I got to see the little tiny heartbeat of my little baby growing inside Danelle. I had the biggest smile on my face the entire time that the midwife was moving it around to try and get some good shots. I could tell that Danelle was very happy and that makes me even happier. When I first saw the image of it's little body moving around and it's heart beating so fast I was mesmerized. I didn't know what to say. I can't wait to welcome this little one into the world with my whole being.

I’m going to be a father, can you believe that? Sometimes I forget what that really means. Last night I was on duty standing the 0300-0600 watch and I was sitting there with very little to do, and I just thought about what the next 18 years at least are going to entail. It’s scary and yet at the same time I can’t wait to see what happens and how things turn out.
