First, can you believe its been a little over eight months since I got the call from Carly that nearly put me on the floor while I was stocking cartons of milk? The mere thought of becoming a father in the next few hours, quite honestly, has me freaking out a bit.
On a bit of a lighter note, here's something kind of odd that I wanted to share with you:
A couple of months ago Carly thought it would be cool to find out what a computer program thinks our baby would look like. The picture above is its result. I think its kind of creepy and I'm not quite sure where it got the ginger looking hair from. It was just another one of those things that helped to amplify Carly's excitement so I guess in that regard it did its job-still creepy though.
One of the really great things Carly did for us in preparing for the baby was sign us up for a couple of baby classes held through the Women's Center of Erie. Initially I was not at all thrilled with having to take these classes; the classes met every Tuesday and Thursday in the month of March. However, my displeasure with the idea of these was quickly extinguished. I cannot tell you how freaking awesome these classes were. The women who taught the classes were absolutely wonderful and the material that was covered made myself and Carly feel mentally empowered. Thus we were able to feel more ready for childbirth and its consequences than we were previously had (although I did, regretfully, have to miss watching a handful of Penguins hockey games to attend these classes-the things a dad does for his child that isn't even born yet!!!). Honestly, if anyone knows they are having a baby or plans on having a baby and lives in the Erie area I highly recommend you to take these classes-they are that good!
