OMG The Baby is Coming!!

by J. Money on Tuesday, July 10, 2012

We’re off to the hospital to get this party started!! ACK!! So excited!!  I’ll keep y’all in the loop as time goes on here (you can also keep up with me on Twitter), but if you don’t hear from me in a while you’ll know why ;)  I’m either chillin’ with the baby, or my wife has killed me for getting on here right now, haha…

I’ve got a handful of great guest posts scheduled in while I’m gone though, so you’ll be in good hands! Gotta keep on talking about that money and staying motivated, baby – life is good!

THANK YOU all so much for your support – it really really means a lot!

Wishing Mrs. J$ an easy, quick delivery! Excited for you!!

I was laughing about you blogging before heading to the hospital and it reminded me of stopping at the post office to mail our taxes on the way to the hospital. I was screaming at my husband by the time he came back out to the car. Funny story now….NOT funny then. :)

Thanks everyone!!! Future mommy is resting peacefully while I do my best to entertain her and keep her sane :) It’s amazing how fast and scary it is while you’re at home waiting, and then how slooooooooooooow and boring it is until it’s time to push the little guys out! Hopefully we’ll be there soon enough though – thanks for all the positive thoughts!

Pictures and recap coming sometime later… back to Husband Duty we go ;)

(@Jen – that is HILARIOUS about your post office stoppage! I think your husband and I would get along swimmingly ;))

Congrats! You’re right, it can be mind-numbing waiting for the event. And you can’t leave for a sec because you don’t want to come back and find you missed it.

Congrats J$! Having a baby is an experience like no other. Hearing that baby’s cry for the first time brought tears to my eyes immediately. How could God allow me to create something so cool and Freakin’ awesome! Good luck, new dad!

Woo hoo! Congrats!

Hope your hand isn’t too bruised from labor! Do they actually do that–you old Mrs. $’s hand and she squeezes the life out of yours? :)

Maybe you’ll get a 7-11 baby! Free slurpies to celebrate!

I find it funny that you said the hospital was slow and boring. My son was born last Tuesday 7/10, and I can assure you, our experience was anything but slow and boring. More like the fast and the furious!

Reply

54 J. Money July 24, 2012 at 3:35 pm

Haha, thanks everyone!!! Mom and baby are doing well and I’ll be back in a few days to share all our love and happiness! As well as some funny stories so far! Haha…. I’m practicing “getting back to work” a few days this week to play catch up and see how it goes, but already it feels pretty weird, knowing the wife is taking care of the baby all by her self while I’m gone :( But we can’t be 100% free and on “vacation” forever or we won’t be able to pay the bills! ;) So fingers crossed I can get right back to it once I’m officially on the clock again… Hope things are well in your guys’ hoods!! And congrats on your newborn too Nicole – that’s awesome!!!!!
