We're going to be parents in December!
Yes, you read that little wonder-stick right. There is a Ziggy on the way! Conceived after our second wedding, Ziggy the zygote is now 13 weeks old.
That means Amy is just starting to show and we're both just beginning to freak out. Ziggy will one day soon be an actual child - it already has little arms and legs, and sucks it thumb. One day soon, we'll be actual parents, and of something way more intense than a Taxi, too.
But we'll hopefully not know if itâ€™s a boy or a girl until the big day, believing healthy to be the preferred option . That is if Amy can resist the urge to ultrasound herself every chance she gets.
I went to the last viewing and was stunned into silence as the ultrasound technician showed us Ziggy's well-formed appendages, head, brain, and even little beating heart. The miracle of life in my wife's belly.
I am so humbled. And so nervous. Got any tips, tricks, and thoughts for soon-to-be parents?
