So this is my first time blogging the baby. I find myself almost at a loss at what to say besides the obvious: I am so excited!!! We got our first ultrasound in early August and the pics took my breath away. I was expecting a formless blob of cells. But instead…a heartbeat, limbs, digits, a brain, everything! It was amazing to see all of that and imagine it came from my wife and I (no comment on what that means for baby!). Everyday I look more and more forward to being a father. File this under mushy, heartwarminess. I may be a hardline lefty radical in politics, but I’m really just a softy deep down. Updates abound, especially after October 2nd when w find out the sex!
