Week 40 – Finally

WE’VE MADE IT! To a full term pregnancy that is.  The doctor didn’t think we would make it this far but this kid has decided he is going to come out already knowing how to read, write, talk, spell, and do math.   Any moment now he can come out in a fitting rage of joy (ok maybe not joy).  As frustrated as we are that we were told he would have made his entrance into the world nearly 3 weeks ago the doctor is just as frustrated.  It looks as thought we will now go past our due date by a week… ok well no later then a week.  We’ve set up an induction just in case between now and then he decides he is just going to be a momma’s boy and stay in there.

It is easy for me to say that having an end point in mind releases alot of stress.  It makes my life alittle bit easier because I can now say on this date it will all be over… but I don’t have to live with a watermelon inside of me for the next week and half.   But lets just say that I’ve now got all the daddy/parent essentials… a nice still camera and now the quintessential all new parent loving video camera!

That’s right… I’m going to be that parent who posts videos of when our son does something only semi-interesting to only us but we all think your interested in it. HAHA Be prepared facebook and youtube! I had to take it one step further and get the entire Adobe Production suite for my computer too.  Being a news photographer I can’t just settle for normal home movies, I’m taking them to the MAX!  Music, Interviews, RAW video, Pictures, Breaking News (ok maybe not breaking news I don’t think you would be really interested that my son just crapped his diaper) My wife thinks I’ve totally geeked out… ok yeah I’m geeking out.

P.S. I’m not sure I’ll go as far as to post the semi interesting video’s only the really interesting ones!
