14 Down, 26 to Go.

Here is a bit of video from one of our most recent prenatal appointments.  If you look closely you can see the little bugger jumping around in there.

Cognitively I understand there is a human being growing inside my wife and even though I’ve been through it before it’s still a bit hard to comprehend what’s actually coming.  This is a human I’ve yet to meet, but will eventually be one of my best friends.

The memories I have of my son Alex being a baby seem so distant and yet I can get back to that place in my heart quite easily.  Now, he’s quite the independent young man, which fills me with pride but I do miss having him need me to the same degree.    I also have difficulty remembering all but the most talked about memories, mainly because I was so busy trying make sure things were “taken care of.”   The nostalgia, for me, comes when I think about the stuff I only glimpsed on the first go round.

This time I’m going to make sure I get to experience all the things I was too young to appreciate the first time!
