week. 25.

we camp together, alone.  nbd.

Hello everyone,

25 weeks… its so crazy.  It all goes by so fast.  I wish it would slow down, and at the same time I want it to go by fast so I can meet the little one as soon as possible.  I just need to remember to enjoy every second because you don’t get them back.  …. I …. I AM GOING TO BE A DAD!!!!?!?!??!?!!!  God help me!  I am going to be in charge of raising a human being.  Most of my family and friends are currently nervous about the last sentence I just wrote.

It is a crazy thing… life.  It goes by so fast.  Before I know it, my kid will be off to kindergarten/highschool/college/married/havingkidsoftheirown.  It is so hard for me and my simple brain to process all of these thoughts.  I always knew that I wanted children, and now I am going to have a child!  What will I be like as a father?  What will be my biggest failure in my child’s eyes?  Will my kid be taller than me?  I hope so!  But I’ll still kick their butt in all sports until I am 60!

Anyways, back to the present.  Kate and I had a wonderful time camping.  We just sat back and enjoyed some of the last few moments of quiet that we have together.  It was mostly uneventful, except when I locked our only car key inside of our car, along with our IDs/CreditCarts/CellPhones.  Other than that it was really quiet and peaceful.  I highly suggest Crawford Notch Campground to anyone looking for epicallyawesomescenery/hotshowers/rivers/cabins/tentsites/rvsites/andagoodtimeingeneral.

Kate is feeling and looking amazing!  Her back is still hurting her, but she is managing.  I am so excited/nervous/scaredoutofmymind about this baby!  I am still not sure if it has all hit me yet.  15 more weeks… that is pretty much the most time we have left… its so crazy.

Anyways, I am freaking myself out, I am gonna go to bed and feel the baby move around for a bit to calm me down.

As always…

thanks for looking,
daniel. kate. babyjedi.

p.s. to all you parents out there… do you get what I am saying?

    I felt the same way about my pregnancies. Towards the end, I actually was hoping the baby would wait longer to be born, because I always felt I could keep her safer in me than outside of me. I can never imagine my kids any older than they are right at the moment, and I have learned so much from them. They are the center of my heart, and the gravity that keeps me in place.They see the world in a way that we all should, at least from time to time. Make sure you take time every day to play with and hug your child, and tell him/her how much love you have for them, even in those awkward years when they don’t want to be seen with you. :) It is the times you spend with your children loving them that will carry you through all of your other times.

    Dan, you are going to be a Great dad! Worrying is natural, and something you will now do for the rest of your baby’s life. The thing I always keep in mind (because I am a perfectionist) is… The only thing you can do is the best you can with each situation that presents its self. Somethings are out of our hands as parents. Congrats again! Enjoy every mintue…cause like you said it goes by so fast!
