Heh. We’ll have to try again next year. Maybe it was the shade, maybe it was the bugs, maybe it was the timing, maybe it was a lack of Miracle Gro. Did you see our posts about building it and hanging the sign?
This is all the growth we got:
And something ate our sunflower:
Sigh. Ha ha.

We went for an ultrasound yesterday, and got the 1st photos of the baby. They all look like a little peanut. The X-ray tech said “yolk sac” about 37 times. I don’t want any eggs for a while. (Yes, I know it’s something wholly & entirely different for those of you that can’t read humor.)
Seeing that little flashing heartbeat is nothing short of astounding. I can’t wait to meet this tiny little person!
I set up an email address like in that “Dear Sophie” Google commercial:
I think it will be fun!

So, I’m gonna be a dad. It’s crazy. I’m the guy that plays in a punk band that sings songs about poop, gets his truck stuck in the mud, buys crazy guitars, and has Batman & Star Wars obsessions. I barely have my own life together, and now my wife & I are going to be responsible for another one? As crazy as it is, I think we’re ready. It’s exciting. We’ve been OK with the thought of having a kid for a while, it just never happened. We’re glad it’s finally happening. Some time in May, we should have a little boy or girl. We go on Saturday for an ultrasound to get an exact date.
Someday, someone is going to call me “Dad” and my wife “Mom”. The idea of it all is just incredible. I’m sure I’ll be blogging about it all along the way. Before I start, any fatherly or parenting advice? Please leave some below! (Not on Facebook to Twitter!)
