We've known about it for a while now, but we both wanted to wait until we cleared the first trimester before saying anything.
We just cleared it, so...
... And yes, it was on purpose.
The wife and I are both thrilled, and our little boy is looking forward to being a big brother.
It'll mean some sleepless nights, a drop in income, and I should probably start knocking out the RPGs in my to-play stack before the baby arrives, but you know what?
It's all worth it.
>We don't know if it's a boy or girl yet. (Our little boy is hoping for a sister.)
>We will want to know the gender before birth. (We're not big on surprises.)
>We do have names picked out, but we're not going to say what they are.
>We won't be giving birth in a tub of water or on a patch of moss in a forest. None of that fruity new-age stuff for us, we like hospitals.
>Disposable diapers all the way.
Best parts about it?
I've got the most wonderful lady in the world to help me raise our young ones, and it will be a true blessing to finally have a child who doesn't spend the majority of their time in another state.
Full-time Dad-Land, here I come!
