    Finally "Facebook official" tonight! 14 weeks in now. All apart of my 5 year plan;). We find out in 4 days of it's a boy or girl. If it's a boy I'm sure he will wrestle in Iowa City under Spencer Lee 19 years from now. If it's a girl I'm buying more guns next week.. :D Can't wait! Life is good:)

    I believe you meant to say "If it's a boy I'm sure he will wrestle in Iowa City under the guy that Spencer Lee hires 19 years from now."

    I have done amazing things in my life but being a dad is by far the coolest and most rewarding experience by far. I hope you have the same.

    Enjoy some of life's greatest gifts and learn some of life's greatest lessons. As Mirdad said - "We live so we learn to love and we love so we learn to live"

    Congrats. You have never felt the kind of love a child creates. If it is a daughter, prepare to be consumed.

    My daughter was a difficult birth and conception for my wife. As a result, she was out of it for some time immediately following her birth. As a result, I got to be the substitute first skin to skin "holding" of our daughter. They swaddled her to my chest only an hour or so after being born for about an hour. No words can explain the joy.

    Now, of course, my wife still gives me crap about it as my daughter orders me around like a drill sergeant!

    Congrats!!! Though I hope it was a part of your plan rather than apart of it. :)

    One of the great moments of your life will be the first time he/she falls asleep in your arms, right before your eyes.

    Yeah but...just use a family name.
    (What can I say, I’m a traditionalist on this topic).

    Yep that’s what dads are for. To love is to will the good of the other. Wt, you’re about to really find out what that means in a way that is different even from how you feel about mrs wildturk. And the good part is, you get something back that is indescribable, without even asking for it.

    Reminds me of a line from my sister in law the endocrinologist. When asked If she wanted a boy or a girl, she simply said “yes”.
