38 weeks and she is about to pop. Today, we went to the doctor for cautionary reasons. The baby momma hasn’t been feeling well so we had to make sure she and the baby are good. Anyways everything turned out well and the doctor said that the last couple of weeks will be miserable for the mom. All I can say is that I’m excited and I can’t wait. So anyways on a different note I...
So I went to my first ever baby shower a few days ago and it was quite entertaining. It wasn’t a huge crowd and all, just a small group of the moms co-workers. Granted I was the only guy in the shower but I had a great time. I’ve noticed the trend that if you’re having a girl, you’re almost certain that most of the things you will get will have something pink in it which...
Let the bettings begin!!!
So I don’t know if I mentioned it before that the due date of my baby is March 18th. As we all know that babies don’t usually follow the exact delivery schedule so many people are predicting that it will be a late baby but I’m thinking it will be early (about a week). It’s probably because I just can’t wait. What do you guys think??
As much as you think you have almost everything ready for the baby’s arrival, it feels like its not enough. Feeling nervous and excited.
6 Weeks to Go!
I can’t believe the time went by really quick and only 6 weeks to go. It has been an interesting last few months. I know I haven’t been as active in my tumblr and I would like to apologize for that. In fact all I’ve been doing is school and work and in a way, I haven’t had any free time to update any of my social networking sites. Although I need to be back in the game...
Thank you for the inspiration Thank you for caring Thank you for standing up for me Thank you for being strong Thank you not giving up Thank you for being there whenever I need you Thank you for the motivation Thank you for being the best father a son can have I will miss you
Three months to go and time is flying
I started writing this draft about a week ago and was meaning to post it by the 18th but I just wasn’t able to do it. I was so busy with work that I barely touched my computer last week. I’ve used my Iphone more for internet than my computer :-p Three months! can I say it again? THREE MONTHS!!! that’s how much more to go until the most precious beautiful amazing Emilene will...
Generation 2011 - ?????
Growing up in the generation y category, I can say that it has been pretty interesting. Keep in mind I never really thought about what difference each generation has. My parents are Generation X (60’s- early 80’s) kids and lets see what crazy things happened that time: Vietnam War, hippie movement, oil crisis, AIDS epidemic, loan crisis, etc. Generation Y (80’s - 90’s)...
Doctors Appointment for the monthly check up
The monthly check up is coming up next week and guess who’s excited? >this guy< :-p Anyways it will be my first visit (I know its sad) since I was living in a different city at the time. I think these are the only times I can say that I’m excited to go to the doctors office :-p. Its December and the baby is due in three more months!! Time is flying by so quick!
Saturday + Sunday = Packing
As I’m gathering all the stuff that I’m bringing with me for the move, I’ve noticed that I have been given enough stuff to make a baby room (minus the crib). I feel really grateful that there are people out there actually looking out for me. As of now, all of the stuff are gonna be in a corner of my room or in the closet in my new apartment since the baby is not due until march...
Everything is just shnarftastic
21 weeks and counting! From the moms report, the baby’s been super active. I’ve always wondered the feeling of a growing human inside you and starts kicking you from the inside…hmmmm..actually I take that back. The mom said that sometimes it hurts when the baby does it and everytime I think about it, It just sounds really painful. One more week until I move back to Tallahassee...
What a week...
Sorry guys I haven’t updated my blog, its been a crazy busy week and it seemed like it passed by really quick! My schedule lately has been school-work-school-work. Its also mid term week for me so that means extra studying time. I have no problem with it, keeping busy is always good anyways. Now the update on the progress. The mom is 20 weeks today! you know what that means?? She’s...
Five Myths of Fatherhood →
This is a great article I’d like to share with you guys. As a expectant father, It helped me understand more about being a new dad and differentiate the facts from the myths.
One more day! Less than 24 hours!
Im sorry but I just can’t help it. I am so excited to find out what the gender of the baby is tomorrow! A boy or a girl? that is the question. For me it doesn’t matter, I just cant wait and I probably wont be able to sleep tonight!
A conversation with my 4 yr. old nephew
Im training to have a conversation with a 4 yr. old so why not with my nephew.
Nephew: Look uncle! a train (holding a toy train in front of my face)
Me: That's awesome!
Me: Do you have any friends?
Me: oh yeah? Who?
Me: She's not your friend, she's your mommy
One more week! 7 more days! 168 more hours!
Until we find out the gender of the baby! For this occasion I installed a counter just for the fun of it. (the counter is not mobile compatible so it won’t show up when you look at my blog. sorry!)
I will teach you how to draw and paint, I will teach you to play music, I will teach how to play sports. These are the three things that I know I’m good at and enjoy. I can’t wait to welcome you in this world.

When Should I Start Teaching my Child Music?
I’ve always said to myself, whenever I have a kid I will definitely teach him/her how to play a musical instrument. I’ve been playing drums for 11 years now and it was a major part of my life so I figured I should pass it along to my kid. It doesn’t necessarily have to be drums but some sort of musical instrument (guitar, keys, or maybe even a violin). I get really excited just...
It’s hard to understand your partners feelings towards pregnancy especially if you’re not the one who’s carrying it. No matter how many people will tell me that its normal, I still struggle at times on grasping their situation. Am I not suppose to or am I not trying hard enough? For me, its a battle between the two. I want to understand but as a man, I feel pretty limited. I...
Whats been up
Nothing crazy or out of the ordinary had been happening. I guess I would say its been a normal progress for a pregnant lady. One downside is I’m 8 hours away so it sucks not being able to be there. A few more months to go and after getting settled down, I would be able to get a full hands on experience and help out. But anyways here’s whats going to happen: - We find out the gender of...
Please don’t tell me you’d die for your kid. Of course I feel the same way. I’d...– A quote I read in Neurotic Dad ‘s blog. Hilarious

I posted a few things that I felt needed to be addressed a couple of days ago (some rules and regulations) but when my girlfriend told me that it wasn’t working I went ahead and checked it out. I saw it was working but then that’s when my whole layout disappeared. I’ve managed to fix it and when everything seems set and done, I saw that the link to the article wasn’t...
A couple of days ago, My co-workers and I started talking about names and one of them asked me if I would include a middle name. Well of course my answer was yes but it made me think that there are people out there that doesn’t have middle names. Call me old school but that’s weird…just saying What do you guys think? Can you name me a famous person who doesn’t have a...
