Today Was A Good Day...For Me

 Obviously, pregnancy is much easier for me than it is for my incredible wife, Christie, who is just 6 weeks 4 days prego. Although my day was somewhat relaxing - lunch at Ruby Tuesdays, followed by a quick visit to Home Depot, then replacing a window while watching the NFC and AFC championships - Christie's, although much the same as far as events, was tarnished with nausea, stomach pains, crying and diarrhea :), sorry.

"I can't believe that a little peanut can cause me to feel this bad!", said Christie (3 or 4 times today). I'm doing my best to be understanding and supportive by cooking, cleaning, assuring her comfort with drinks, fruit, grocery runs, etc. I know it's only 6 1/2 weeks in, but it's already taking it's toll on Christie. I can't even imagine the emotional and physical changes & challenges that she is and will be going through for the weeks, months, and years to come. She's incredibly tough, but change is not something she deals well with...and this one is a huge (yet so small right now), unplanned one! I love her and I guess being the best dad in the world, starts now, by being the best husband in the world. I just raised the cheese factor to an all-time high with that one, huh? :).

I've always loved writing and sharing my opinions. Looking towards the future as a stay at home dad, I figured I'd do my best to start and maintain a blog to document these important times...and to keep myself sane. I'd like to give notice and praise to the blog and it's writer that gave me the inspiration to take this step: Pacing The Panic Room by Ryan Marshall. I've just started reading it, but it's already made an impact. Thank you.

  1. woo hoo!!!!! can't wait for our little ones to meet! Let Christie know pregnancy should get MUCH, MUCH better after about 12 weeks or so... then it starts to really suck again in the final few weeks :)

    I am so happy for you both!
