I guess I could chalk this up, sound the trumpets and throw a ticker tape parade and celebrate that this is my "official" post.

As you may or may not know, I'm going to be a father in a couple of months. And as the calendar days get crossed off the idea of being a father becomes more and more real. Am I excited? Yes. Am I sacred? You bet ya I am. I have been told by my family and friends that I will make a great father, but more importantly WILL I? That has been a question in my head that has haunted me since the second I found out I was going to be. Will I raise it right? Will I be able to teach it all the right things, that I may have done wrong in the past growing up? Will my son/daughter love me for who I am no matter what? This may come off as I'm rather throwing a "pity party" than a celebratory one, but what it all comes down to is this: Will I be a good father?

So I guess the purpose of this post is this... When you found out that you were going to have a child, how did you react? how did you feel? What was going through your head as the date got closer and closer? I'm reaching out to you both men and women, and I would love to hear for thoughts and fears... Thank you in advance

I couldn't be happier that I'm going to be a father! If your wondering what the sex of the baby will be, We will know in less than 2 weeks and are both hoping for a girl.
