Baby is coming and he is coming soon! Our life has been a complete whirlwind for the past 2 months.  Baby showers, business travel, birth classes, new jobs…you name it we have done it in the past 2 months. However, I feel like we are over the hump. The Nursery is set, his clothes are washed, our bags are packed, and now we wait.  It is a weird feeling knowing that at any moment you could be a dad. Feeling unprepared? Ohh yeah.  Not to mention, an official name has not been picked out.  We have it officially down to two.  
People have a way of wigging you out about being a parent.  If I had a dime for every time someone told me “Your life is over” I would be a millionaire.  I feel as though there is some big secret that no one tells you until you have a child and then you are magically apart of this strange pain and suffering club, sworn not to tell any young couple the truth about what lie ahead.  Who knows.  In the words of my wise granddaddy “it will seek its level”.  What I do know is I am excited. I do know my life is about to change drastically, but not in a bad way.   I do know that I will have to grow up even more!  I do know I will have to lean on the Lord for wisdom, guidance and SLEEP.  I do know I have a wonderful wife, who will be an excellent mom, to walk through this experience with.  I also know that my son will have an excellent support group in grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends.
More to come very soon!
