A Man, A Wife, and a Baby

So it’s Been a Bit July 15, 2007

April has been doing such a great job keeping everyone updated that I have been able to sit back and enjoy her writings. But, it’s been a bit since I’ve come to you for an update, so I thought that since I have a minute here at work, I would.

Working three jobs is setting in. Man am I tired a lot. I’m not sure how this is going to get better with a baby on the way. But April has been fantastic, letting me sleep when I need to and helping me out any way she can.

We have been looking for a new car for me. We wanted something big enough for my long legs to fit in, and something big enough for baby seats and kids later on. So we spent all day yesterday looking for a new car, and finally found one:

A 2003 Dodge Durango. It’s funny to think that this is going to be the car that my boy grows up remembering. I remember the cars that my parents had over the years of my childhood. The vans, the truck, the sedans. Just interesting.

Anyway, not much has been happening on the baby front. I think that I felt him kick a week or two ago, but haven’t been able to feel him since then. Hopefully his kicks will get stronger so I can easily feel them as we go on.

Speaking of going on, we’re about four months away from D-Date. I hope everything is going to go smoothly. Does it ever? I don’t know, but I think we’re ready for anything. Mentally I’m still struggling with my ability (or lack thereof?) to be a good father, but really there isn’t anything that I can do about that until the baby comes, and work as hard as I can to do well by him.

I’m still waivering on the name. I like Austin. I like Luke. I like Austin and Luke. Everyone seems to favor Luke, though, which by my Devil’s Advocate Nature makes me favor Austin. Who knows. We’ll probably end up flipping a coin. 🙂

One last thing for this post, holy crap at the cost of childcare. The place we’re looking at for childcare is 189 bucks A WEEK. That is crazy. That’s 756 dollars a month, 9072 dollars a year. That just boggles my mind!

Anyway, as always your comments and thoughts are welcome. I see you lurking; post something. 🙂

    Sidenote: I would offer to look after the little one during the summer months, however I hate kids. Sorry I can’t help. Does the Y offer day camp for 8 month olds???
