FINALLY. 2 months
of locked entries, and we can finally announce that
we're having a baby. However, WE are not
pregnant, SHE is and I think that piece of
political correctness is insane. Maybe it's my
inner-black woman, but whenever I hear the saying
"we're pregnant" I hear a black lady saying "You ain't
pushin this baby out!". I'm a strange
...but a madly in
love, madly excited, can't stop rubbing the tiniest
baby bump ever and giggling like a schoolgirl. So
I wrote a song. Duh.
:) So huge exhale,
today marks the beginning of the 2nd trimester and we
no longer have to hide our excitement...
...and for me?
That means 15 locked entries, a dozen locked videos
and practically a LIFETIME of storytelling. I have
never locked so much and am so bummed that so
many things will never be seen because it's so much at
once. So I have to take this entry and just make sure
you get the good stuff. First of course being the full
video of how we found out. A more precious video has
never graced this site and I am sooooooooo glad
I can finally show everyone...
I still cry everytime. That "I
believe" music is just magical to me. It will
make me cry when I'm 80. I have to be the luckiest man
on the planet. Seriously. Oh and I was able to ask
Chevy Chase if he had any advice, and here's that
The entry is the
last one in February. Unfortunately the full
"Community" entry and video will be held back
until the season finale on Ken Jeong's request. He's
been incredibly cool with me (strangely we've been
facebook friends for 3 years) but asked that
I wait because even the tiniest detail gleamed
from the video and pics may give away a subtle
plotline and he can't wait to surprise the fans. That
cast is as in love with their fans as their fans are
with that cast. It's awesome. So expect that
entry in May. :-)
Oh and in case you
don't hit any of the entries last month
(PLEASE DO) you gotta see this pic:
That little baby
is SMILING. That picture is at 11 weeks (we're at 13
today). So exciting. But I've written all this in the
preceding entries so please, even if it takes awhile -
try and catch all of February and March. This is a
huge moment in my life, absolutely the biggest,
absolutely the happiest, and I chronicled every
moment. There can't be a more appreciative father on
the planet. We are so giddy it's sickening (literally
for Talya - check the entries).
As I've said
previously in the locked entries, I will try to
not let this take over the entirety of The Journey and
focus on the changes I'm going through as opposed to
chronicling every friggin' movement of this child.
It'll be a tough balance, but I know how boring baby
pics become on Facebook after awhile and I want to try
and show a different side. I think I've done that with
some of the entries so far and I hope to
...but believe me,
I want that ultrasound picture in my WALLET and
want to show it to every single person I meet.
We've known for 2 months and it's still the coolest
shit and most exciting news EVER.
As well, there's a
bunch of now unlocked entries/videos that had nothing
to do with the baby... but because I mentioned the
baby in them? They had to be locked too.
I decided not to censor myself while writing them
because it's the truth: I think about that kid
constantly. The "Attempted
where I was on a jury is especially cool because so
many people I know never make it to an actual
case. Really interesting and unique story for the
Alright, now that
you're through all that... did you notice the date?
April Fools Day? Did I get you again? Or are we
having a baby?
