Happy Father’s Day to me

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;

Psalm 127: 3-5b

Working on the Nursery

This weekend Jen and I worked on the nursery after receiving a bunch of gifts from the baby shower on Thursday.

Here is what the room looked like Friday afternoon:

Then after Jen did a bunch of organizing, and I did some moving and cleaning and putting together of things it looked like this:

Fatherhood draws closer…

Today Jen and I went to the hospital and had our second round of ultrasounds done. The baby was fairly cooperative at first, and was quite active.

The front view of the face is was kind of freaky because you can see the skeleton so well:

The really weird part was when we saw the spine. You can actually see all the little vertebrae up and down the spine. The good news is everything is on track and looking normal. We have a healthy baby. It was amazing to see the baby squirming around so much. We even had to do some laps around the office because the baby wouldn’t roll over when trying to get the information on the heart rate. I told Jen to hop, skip, and jump, and had to tickle her to get her moving, but the baby still didn’t roll over – so she has to go back for another round.

The funny part was when the baby decided to do some interesting hand gestures. West Side!

Baby’s First Picture

I guess it technically is not a picture it is an ultrasound, but the baby is definitely pictured below:


We have decided to not know the gender until birth – which I believe will probably be a daunting task.  Also, we currently like names that start with H such as Herbert, Harold, and Hilga… =) or not.
