“Aaaaaaaaa shuooooooop!” 

Good morning kiddo! 

Your momma has been going through some subtle changes as she grows you in her tummy. It’s pretty awesome to watch. She is just about the cutest she has ever been. Whatever chemicals you are making moms body produce are making her absolutley adorable. 

Its 6:30am on Saturday morning and I was sitting on the couch. Your mom was still in bed with the bedroom door shut. Suddenly I hear  “Haaaaaaaaaaaaa schteupppppppppppp!!!”from the depths of the bedroom. Your mom is awake! 

I got up from the couch and headed to the bedroom. Just as my hand hit the door handle it opened from the inside and your mom was standing there. 

It can’t be verified- but I believe your mom just SNEEZED HERSELF AWAKE!!!

Here are some interesting exchanges from this morning:

Me: What do you want to do today? Do you want to take the boat out? 

Your mom: Ummmm… you want to get a dresser?

Me: You want to get a pedi today? You need some pampering. 

Your mom: Ohhhh a dresser with a mirror!

Me: Do you want to go to the outlets and get some stuff? 

Your mom: What? Outlets? Shopping? No. 

On some show on TV they just sold a $1000 cigar- 

Me: Honey what would you do if someone gave you a $1000 cigar to smoke? 

Your mom: I’d sell it. And get a dresser. 

Mom scrolls frantically through her cell phone then states, “ok- this place, has.. a lot of… dressers.” 

Mom: Usually cribs have to be ordered. That’s just how it goes.”

Mom: Now let’s look at cribs on Wayfair!

Singing *Wayfair you got just what I need!* 

Me: Are you going to take me to do anything fun today? 

Mom: Sure! Let’s go bowling! 

Me: I want to go to Nickies for breakfast.

Mom: Okay! Let’s go! (The fastest she has ever made a decision in 5 years) 

Mom: This gray crib isn’t dark enough for you? 

Me: I don’t know it’s kind of light for a boy. I think the difference between a girlie crib and a boy crib is a shade of gray. (Very philosophical this morning) 

**Now I am in the bathroom, and I just received texts. One is a photo of a gray crib. The second text says “see, it can be a boy crib!”**

Mom: Is there a Hobby Lobby around here? 

Me: If you take me to Hobby Lobby I will end up with a remote control plane. 

Mom: Look! This moose head is $25! At Hobby Lobby! 

Me: Are you hungry? 

Mom: Yes. Yes I am. 

Okay son- time to get you and mom fed and watered. Heading out. You’ll be 19 weeks tomorrow! Almost halfway there!

Enjoy breakfast and our errands today. Mom Moving around all day should make it nice and cozy for you in there.

Also thought of a name for you yesterday mom and I really like… 

Love you little dude, 


Your first time on the boat as a fetus! With Grandpa Gray! 

Hey there sport! 

Mom and I took your grandpa out on the boat today. We went down the Hillsborough River and into Tampa Bay past downtown. At one point I started to speed up, then I realized you were probably getting bumped around a bit in there. I wonder what you thought was going on! 

Grandpa had a great time, and it was awesome watching him and your mom get quality time out on the water together. Great memories. If we still have the boat when you get here, this day is probably why. Terrific day out on the water. 

Right now your mom and Grandpa are off getting sandwiches for lunch while Grandma and I watch some TV and relax. We plan on taking Grandpa to see a Western at the movie theater this afternoon. 

Hope you are having a good day in there son. Get ready for a sub sandwich little feller. Eat up and grow, grow, grow! 

Here are some photos from today! 

Love ya Lil’ Dude, 


The Baby Bump!!!! Week 18 

Hey kiddo- I can see you!!! 

It didn’t appear that your mom had much of a baby bump, if any at all, until last Thursday. We went to get the gender reveal sonogram and mom layed back and pulled up her shirt. There you were! A little baby bump with my baby boy in it! She had done such a good job hiding it- I was shocked when I finally saw it! 

Yesterday a coworker sent your mom an email with me included. She said “OMG! You are the most adorable preggo- you’re freaking GLOWING!” When I saw the email I was really bummed that I couldn’t see your beautiful mom right then. 

This morning we did final cleanup and prep for your Grandma and Grandpa Gray’s arrival tonight. As I was mopping the floors your mom came out and said “look at this baby bump! It’s a baby!” I dropped what I was doing and rushed over to her. These opportunities don’t come often and I wasn’t going to miss a chance to touch you and tell you I love you. 

Mom says when I talk into her belly to you that all you hear is muffled, garbled sounds. I think you can hear me. I’m going to talk to you anyway. 

Anyway- this morning your mom actually let me take a picture of her baby bump! Here you are little dude! You are hiding in there! Today you are 17 weeks and 3 days old in there. 

Love you!
