Two Weeks Until the Baby Arrives…Posted: June 6, 2007
Well, a week has passed since we last spent time together.
Obviously, you can tell my the name of the post, Baby #2 hasn’t arrived.
Thanks for those of you that ‘voted’ in the “What if it’s a girl” election. Erin was the overwhelming favorite here, but I’m still not sure we know.
Our son Aidan is convinced he’s having a sister. And, he doesn’t like Erin or Maggie.
“Do you think you’re going to have a little sister or brother, Aidan?”
“Do you like the name Erin?”
“Silly name, Daddy.”
“Like window, Daddy. Or pancake.”
Well, I suppose, if it’s a girl, that we could call her Winnie.
Aidan has also declared that he’s only going to share his toys with a sister — including his prized tow truck and fire trucks.
“But, buddy, what if it’s a boy, won’t you share your toys with him?”
Some other random baby things:
We bought new booster seats for Aidan. They go in tomorrow night, along with the new baby’s seat bases. Exciting, eh?
Still haven’t packed any bags. Heck, we’re only five minutes from the hospital.
Everyone asks about my wife. Nobody asks about me. I’m not complaining at all. I’m just sayin’.
Aidan was born the day before Mother’s Day. My wife’s first Mother’s Day was in the hospital. I wonder if we’ll wrap this one around Father’s Day.
I’m still surprisingly calm over all of this.
I’m guessing boy. Aidan is demanding a girl. My wife has no feeling one way or another.
We were together when contractions started the first time. I wonder where we’ll be this time. Will we be together? Will I be at work? Will we be in church? Will we be asleep?
Alright, I guess that’s it.
What else? I got nothin’.
