[Comments] (8) Waiting my turn: Now that Susie has officially blessed the announcement, I too would like to post that we are having a baby, due February 28. February 28. Yeah, right. Due March XX.

I am very very very excited about this. We waited a few years into our marriage because I never felt ready for this responsibility, and always figured I never would. I really assumed that Susie would one day break me on this one, and we'd have a baby. But that's not how it's played out. I'm excited, I feel like I'm ready to be a father, and I want this.

I already have such a wishlist for our unborn child: that he will be healthy, that he will get Susie's good looks, that he will be smart, that adopted grandparents (or that various aunts and uncles) will replace the void of the missing ones, etc.

NB - For all those that told me birth control takes 2-6 months to wear off, poo poo. Here, indeed, history is bunk.

Congrats! Woohoo! I'm looking forward to seeing you grow into awesome parenthood as much as I'm looking forward to seeing little Vijay or Vijaya Chadwick grow up. (Kidding about the name.)

And it depends on the birth control....right?

"that he will get Susie's good looks, that he will be smart"

You mean my good looks and your smarts.

Also, note how John refers to the baby as a "he". =)

Oh my gosh!!! YAY! Congrats. I was going to ask if you knew it was a boy. When do you get to find out the gender?

It depends on birth control for everyone. With Lily it took 1 month and baby boy took 3 months. I am confused as to whether it took you a week or a year.

I don't think it even took a week! And we just got our ultrasound appt. for later this month.

With Atticus, we were two weeks off of the pill (calculate: during the cycle following going off b.c.). I know maybe this kind of info is better kept to ones self, but I'm with John. 2-6 months is bunk.
