Dad is back!

It's been a while since my last confession...

Sara has mentioned on a couple of occassions that I have not contributed much to the blog. This has hurt her feelings a little bit, and for that I am extremely sorry. So let me share with you what is going on in my world. I continue to be very excited about this whole process. It is a little hard to believe (still), which is curious to me. We've obviously known about this for a while, but it's not something that is always in the forefront of my conscious. Maybe that is because it isn't happening inside my body.

If this can be viewed as a positive thing, and therefore credit is due, it is due to Sara. She is handling all of this simply beautifully. Aside from her noticing and commenting on her body changing shape, you'd never know the woman was pregnant. No sickness, infrequent bouts with tiredness and irritability, but that's really it. The burden on me to pick up the slack for her has been almost non-existent. Life continues as usual with the exception of our upcoming doctor's appointment (which I am getting more and more excited about!)

The fact that pregnancy has been such a non-event in terms of changing our life so far is a testament to Sara. I am thankful for how healthy she has been, how diligent she has been in doing this the right way, and I know our baby will be healthier for it. If her "job" is the develop a healthy, happy baby, I think she is passing the test with flying colors.

I know life will be changing soon, and I can't wait!

I think you're doing fine, Jory. Considering the husbands' involvement in pregnancy in my generation(the tail end of the baby boomers),you're already ahead. You suggested going to Baby r Us for goodness sake! (And my comment is not a directed to any one male, just that generation of males). Love--OH mom

My first baby wasn't real to me until I heard her cry for the first time...before that, it was just surreal (and I was carrying her)! If you're at all like me, you'll have more of the "expected" emotions when Sara is pregnant with your SECOND baby. ;)
