Birthing class number 1 finished. I may or may not be freaking out right now.
Ok, so this is really happening. Kate really has a baby living inside of her. It is weird because on one hand you feel insanely attached to this little person that you have never met. And on the other hand it feels a bit strange to you that there is a living thing inside your wife’s stomach. A bit alien-xfiles-esque. I am in love with an alien baby.
Oh, and quickly I will now get into the reason I included the picture of the kids that were swimming in the river during our shoot. The first time Kate and I hung out we went swimming in a river. It was senior year of high school and we were just friends at this point. We both had study hall at the end of the day and seniors were aloud to leave school during study halls. So we decided to go swimming. We jumped right into the river in our school clothes and had a good laugh. Then we got back in my car and drove back to school to pick up our siblings, acting like it was no big deal that our clothes were completely soaked. Seeing these kids reminded me how long ago that was. And now we are going to have a kid of our own. Life is amazing.
The birthing class went well, we got to tour the baby factory section of the hospital, which seems really really nice. The lady giving us the tour works at a bunch of hospitals around and she said Wentworth Douglas was the “Cadillac” of the lot.
We have started to make decorations for the baby shower, and they are looking awesome. Thanks to everyone that came over and helped!!! Also, I now am quite aware of the fact that our apartment is not kid proof in any way shape or form. Luckily, babyjedi will not be mobile for a while, so we will have time to prepare.
Another strange note… the more the reality of the situation sets in, the more surreal everything seems. It is quite paradox I have found myself in.
If the baby is born in October, can I call Kate Octomom? <evil grin>
