Notes from the Other Half

Over a year ago, I started one of these blogs thinking that I might actually keep up with it and be a "blogger". Clearly, blogging is not my strength, as I made it approximately 4 days. But, the mother-to-be insists that I post, so here I sit. As most of you know, sharing my thoughts with others is not really my strong point, so when she suggested that I post about how I feel about our situation, I offered up "I'm excited" as my post...which is definitely not good enough (I'm learning to "read" her "looks").

A lot of people have asked me what I want, a boy or a girl? Most are very surprised when I say that I'd like a girl. Now obviously, I don't really care, but there is something inside me that hopes it's a girl. A big reason, is because I want to see both of our dads completely melt at anything she says or does. I think they would do close to the same with a boy, but they both have big soft spots for little girls, and I think it would be a joy to see. Either way, it's going to be a blast and something I really look forward to.

So there is a whole paragraph of substance, I think I'll call this first posting a success! Any questions/ideas for posting would be much appreciated...I'm being told this will be a regular occurrence.

Well done, Keith. Don't feel alone about not being 100% focused on babies. TJ was stuck at dinner Sunday night between me, Janet, and Sherri Graham. The conversation started about you guys and digressed to our personal experiences. I finally noticed his eyes rolling up in his head. I say, that's what he gets for being too paranoid to be willing to sit with his back to the door. BTW, my mom always said that if you can't have a girl you might as well have a boy. A boy would be better than having a puppy.
