Crib Status

This is what the baby crib is supposed to look like when we are finished. We'll see!

Right now it's still a pile of boards in the basement, but we're just about ready to finish shaping all the pieces, which will lead to the assembly hopefully in the next few weeks. I put things on hold this weekend to get the rest of the items in the baby's room set up, and do some other last minute prep work. 

Looks like the baby is going to be here before we expected, we have a visit with the Doctor this afternoon, and will probably need to make a decision on how to proceed. In either case, induced or surgery, we expect to be at the hospital in the morning, and new parents hopefully before the end of the day.

I'm taking my three week "working vacation" starting this afternoon. I'm going to try to unplug completely for at least a week, and then work part time the until the middle of Sept. to stretch the vacation time I've accumulated, and to allow me to spend time at home with the baby and the wife.

I'll have to squeeze all the introspective soul searching on fatherhood and all my anxiety into the next 24 hours or so I guess.
