I Just Felt My Baby Kick!

While not related to the general dillentasism I've dedicated my musings too, it is, I think sufficiently superficial to anyone but me to warrant mention anyway. Besides which, it's my blog, and if I want to talk about my coming little girl, then dammit! I will!

Some readers may know (and others are just finding out) that my wife and I are expecting our first child (a girl) in October. And I just felt it kick for the first time! Which may well be the coolest thing I've ever experienced.

Congratulations on the baby, Rick!

Your blog is shaping well, so congratulations on that as well. It'll be interesting to see happens when your sleep-deprivation kicks in this fall.

Thanks for the congrats and the kind words, Stephen.

It's important not to mention sleep-deprivation. Through a combination of repetition and unwavering tunnel vision, I have managed to convince myself that my baby will be uniformly cute and well-behaved. She'll let us dress her in cute outfits so we can take her out and show her off, and cry--only fleetingly--when she's very hungry.

You wouldn't want to disillusion me! My fragile sanity might buckle.
