Wow, just one week and my son will be 8 months old. My friends told me that time with your own children flys by. I didn’t believe them, but they were right.
At around 30 yrs old I figured I wouldn’t have any children. I was busy with work and being a single guy, so children really didn’t matter to me. It was no big deal.
About 5 1/2 years ago I met my wife and things changed. I warmed up to the idea of having a child and eventually we decided to go for it. It didn’t take long for the little man to arrive.
I’ve never been so happy and so proud in my life.
My wife says the little guy was “polite” because he was only 6 lbs 14 oz. LOL! He quickly turned that around. At 5 mo’s he’d reached 24 lbs. Today he’s wearing 24 mo cloths!
I imagine he’ll grow like me, unable to crawl, more like a worm, and then he’ll start walking. I think we’re starting to see some of that. He wiggles all over, doesn’t crawl, but stands holding onto things pretty well. The day he pulls himself up will be a watershed event, and one that’s not going to make my wife happy. He’s her last baby.
His personality is starting to show bit-by-bit. He loves NASCAR. OK, he loves all cars. It’s hilarious. As soon as he hears the sounds of engines his head will spin around to see where it’s coming from. It doesn’t matter if it’s on the street or on the TV, he’s checking it out.
He also loves FOX News. Well, I’ll be honest, he loves all the women on Fox, especially Megan Kelley. She’s his favorite. That little bacon boy will stare at her all day if we let him. Ummm, that’s not like me. No. Not at all. Megan Kelley isn’t attractive. Not at all….. Honest….
Oh yeah, as I mentioned on a prior day, it seems he takes after his dad in the methane department. Maybe I shouldn’t admit that… but he can be stinky.
I love watching him reach for stuff and discover new things. His favorite toys are anything daddy likes. The phone, the remote, computer, daddy’s water, daddy’s food. It doesn’t matter. He wants it.
Is it obvious he’s a daddy’s boy? I’m a proud and lucky papa!
