I'm getting a tadpole

I can't believe I get to type this but...I am going to be a father! (yes it was intentional)

My wife, Diana is 14 weeks pregnant and I have been informed that not only is it mine, but I am somehow responsible for it. WOW!

We waited to announce this news until the first trimester had passed and now that it has, the entire blogosphere is now allowed to know this. So, Newt the Wonder Frog is getting a sidekick. Not sure what kind yet but sometime in the first week of October we will be welcoming an addition to our lives.

I have a policy about writing about kids, and that is I don't care for it. I think of my blog as an arena for releasing the gremlins in my head so they don't completely take over. That being said I am sure I will want to write everything in the world about my baby so my wife decided to start a family blog for us. So, if you are interested in knowing my feelings on parenthood, family, and babies or you just want to follow along as God gets even with me for all my past mistakes, you can follow our journey here.

That is all,

Newt

I'm really looking forward to Peanut putting you through the paces of fatherhood - this is going to be a great adventure.

Hooray and congrats!!!

I also like that you tagged this with "sex."

Carrie said...

Hoorah! :)

I'm not going to lie: I just had one of those uber-girly giggling and applauding moments. ;)

Congratulations!

Trinity said...

Erin, I wondered who would notice that tag and go figure it was anal retentive you.

Carrie,Thanks. I am glad I made you go uber-girly giggling.

Congrats!

Can't wait for the tadpole to have a blog of his own, so I can issue a challenge against him! I'm pretty sure I can beat a toddler in a blogoff. ;)

Simon said...

Congratulations; I wish you all the best.

Addy's Daddy said...

I enjoyed that within the first sentence you made sure that everyone knew that you had planned to have a child.... :)

Trinity said...

That question comes up so often I thought I would answer it to get it out of the way.

Soda and Candy said...

Aww, congratulations! The Wonder Spawn is on the way!

Hey :) I really couldn't be happier for you, and I think you and Diana will make awesome parents.

Lucky little tadpole.

BTW: Will you actually be naming the baby "Peanut"? Because you should know ... that's super cute! :P

And I have to say, I also noticed the "sex" tag ... but it's ok, because I've always wanted to be considered anally retentive.

Congrats again, Trinity x
