Mikey D is now Daddy D
« on: January 13, 2005, 07:50 AM »
 ;D

We've known for about a month now, but there is always that waiting period until you decide to tell family and friends.  We broke the news to our parents at Christmas.  Both mothers cried hysterically.

Jen is almost three months along and the baby is due at the end of July.  Her and baby are doing great.  She doesn't want to know the sex, whereas I do.  I just have to work on that.  ;)

Both excited and nervous at the same time.

Congratulations.  Enjoy every stage...

Soon they will be in Jr. High like my eldest.  That time is not a bad stage for us like you here from most but you miss the times they were little.

Then you get over it just fine.

Scott: Oh, Mr. Davidson, I have just heard about the little bundle of joy.  Congratulations, sir!
Mikey: It's true, the bundle is little, but I'm not in it for the money.

Congrats to you and Jen Mikey!  Three words of advice:

#1 Enjoy these last moments of just the two of you.  My wife and I were talking about that last night, how we barely remember our life sans the little guys. 

#2 Sleep, sleep and sleep.  Everyone tells you this but you really have no idea what its like...that sort of ties in to #1...really soak in those lazy Saturday mornings or the afternoons watching football ;)

#3 It goes fast.  I really can't believe Max is almost 3, its almost surreal really and as such, the highs and lows that go with child rearing are a whirlwind of everything and one I think is one of the greatest experiences of your life.

So congrats to you two again Mikey

What Scott said. 

Awesome news, absolutely awesome.  Congratulations to you and Jen.

Advice: Jen is right about everything for the next 6-7 months, do not question anything, no matter how insane it may seem.  Get her what she wants.  Period. 

Ah, diapers, vomit, sleepless nights.  Those are the days. ;D

Yeah, stuff like that.  Pickles and ice cream, etc.  I was fortunate, my wife only ended up with a craving for salt, so lots of trips to the late night drive thru for McD's french fries.  Just know that when she says she wants something, even if she says she doesn't want it now, you are expected to get it now.  To not do so is at your own peril ;)

Way to go Mikey!  Congratulations to you and Jen.   8)

Your lives are about to forever change...   ;)

Best wishes to wife and baby for a comfortable and healthy pregnancy (and eventual delivery).  You guys got any names picked out yet?  Started painting/decorating the youngin' room yet?  Scared?  Nervous?  Excited?  Elated?  Were you shooting for a baby right now?  (no pun intended)

Whatever the details, congrats.  And get ready for a wild ride!   :D

Started painting/decorating the youngin' room yet?


Baby's room to be started after the basement / bar / TV / Star Wars room is done, which should be soon.  Walls are painted, trim work is happening this week, carpet being installed Saturday and furniture being delivered next week.


 You guys got any names picked out yet?

I like Tyler for a boy and Samantha for a girl.  Jen likes Tara for a girl.

Scared? Nervous? Excited? Elated?


Varying degrees of all four.


 Were you shooting for a baby right now? (no pun intended)


Honestly, I've been ready for a while, I was just waiting for when Jen was.  And we weren't trying for that long either.  I guess she's just extremely fertile ;)
