Blog Post #1: The Day I Found Out

The day I found out that we were having a child was one of the best days of my life.  I'll never forget that day, because we were getting prepared for a major winter storm.  Yes, that is how I remember most of the major events in my life, by what weather event was occurring at the time.  Immediately my whole mindset changed. 


Before, I used to travel through snow haphazardly.  But, that would change after I found out that my wife was pregnant.  I now thought about how careful I must be, because I am going to have to provide for a child.  It's like a six sense that came over me.  A sense that my whole life is going to be turned upside down, but for the better.


I have to give a lot of credit to my wife!  This week she enters her 32nd week of pregnancy.  I have never been more proud of her than I am today.  She has trudged through the hottest summer on record while bearing a child, and has not complained one bit.  I know that I would be complaining day and night. 


Ironically, as I finish writing this first blog, I must run to head to another bi-weekly doctor's appointment to check on our little girl Sophie.  I look forward to writing and sharing more about our upcoming family. 


God Bless... Mike
