The picture says it all. Read it carefully. Now, imagine my surprise when I opened a birthday card and read those words. In fact, the first time I read the card, I misread what it said and didn't get the message. After a couple of readings, I finally caught on to the key word: DAD.
That's right. Christine and I are expecting our first child. My lack of catching that detail initially was due to the fact that I have never really associated myself with the word, dad. There's really no way to explain what was going on in my brain when the message finally sunk in. It's still a bit surreal, even to this day.
Currently, Christine is about 10 weeks into the pregnancy. We have an appointment set in January to hear the heart beat, which undoubtedly will be utterly remarkable. At this point, we do not know the gender. We will post again when we find that out.
Life, as I know it, is now forever changed. Oh, what exciting times lie ahead!
