Who or What Will He Become?

Having a child evokes a lot of thoughts and emotions.   You think about life, how you lived it, decisions you have made and what the future holds…..especially what the future holds for your child.  Now every parent has big aspirations for their offspring…..will they grow up to be a lawyer, a doctor, maybe even president….will they will change the world?  I also know a lot of parents even envision their child as a sports star, maybe an All-star centerfielder, or an All-Pro Quarterback.  And I can say that I am no different.  I definitely have these same high hopes for Jordan but as it appears right now I think he is destined to become the next great Jedi Knight.


May the force be with you, little one!

Braxton Hicks Contractions?

I really wish before this whole process started that someone would have told me what Braxton Hicks contractions were.  Because let me tell you, as a first timer the moment your wife mentions she is having contractions panic sets in.  A world of emotions and thoughts swarms through your head…..crap, I don’t have any bags packed; crap, the nursery isn’t set up; crap, we haven’t even taken a single birthing class; crap, am I even ready for this life changing event…what am I supposed to do.  Well all that panic was for not once Jessica informed me of the term Braxton Hicks and what they were.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, it all makes sense.  The uterus is a muscle and it has to get a few workouts in before the  BIG PUSH…..I get it.  I just wish I would have initially got the memo.

Baby Jordan Is Here!

After a long, tough delivery on mom and baby, our son has arrived.  The world’s newest Steelers fan sprung into this world at 11:29 AM on May 30, 2011.  He weighed 7lbs. 15ozs. and was 21 3/4” in length.
