I’m finally a mom….

01-untitled-1

Introducing, Thomas James Gore! Born 8/26/14 @ 8:18pm. 8lbs 14oz 21 inches long. The birth was the hardest thing I have ever endured, but it was all worth it in the end. He is so handsome and quiet! I’m a bit biased since he is pretty much my twin! I am completely in love!

3 Days Left….

Less than 3 days left. That’s how much time I have until I go to the hospital to have our baby. People keep asking me how I feel. And to be honest…..I am anxious, nervous, scared, excited, and ambivalent. Sometimes I feel one emotion at a time. Sometimes all at once.

Our lives will change forever on Monday. Up until now, the process has pretty much been automated inside me (Thanks Placenta!) but now, it will all be up to me and Lenny. That is terrifying! I’m not complaining (Goodness knows this was not an accident or surprise pregnancy), but I am just being honest. It has just been about Lenny and I for 10 years. We are kinda selfish in our cocoon and love it.

It’s not like I am going to miss going to the club and staying out til 3am. I have actually never done that. I am a homebody, so I know my life isn’t going to change in that way. We are just adding a baby to our life. But that is still scary. It’s not like a dog you can put in a cage and come back to after work. This is literally a 24/7 job. And from what I hear, it ain’t easy.

I know that we have prepared as much as possible but most of parenting, you can’t prepare for. And I have accepted that. I think that the most I can do is to prepare to wing it. Same goes for the labor and delivery. I haven’t even let myself think about the hours of pain….

So to answer how I feel, I feel happy and ready to start this new chapter.

With just a week to go, the nursery is finally done!

25 Days Away!

My hubby’s blog 🙂

A Husband's Guide to Artificial Babymakin'

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted on the blog in quite a while. (April 11th to be exact!) That’s weird right?  Well, I’m out of the cave and squinting my eyes against the harsh light of the world to give ya’ll (or is it y’all?) an update on my wife’s pregnancy and how quickly the B-Day is approaching!

  • The title of this post is, as you may have guessed, the number of days left (!) until Jaime’s Induction date.  We were initially given a delivery date of 8/31 but due to her still technically being classified as “high risk”, her OB/GYN is having us come in a week early to be induced!
  • These past 3 months have been hectic in terms of Baby Room Prep!  Here is a list of all the lovely items we’ve gathered:  Crib (Ikea); Pack ‘n Play bassinet/playyard (Baby Shower); Stroller/Car Seat (Target); 4…
