    Congrats. Life is about to take on new meaning for both of you (proud papa of 2 rugrats, ages 3 and 1-1/2) :D

    Hey! That is great. Congratulation. Yes, we'll be praying all goes well with your pregnancy.
    Being a dad can be very challenging, but nothing can compare to the fulfilment from it if you do it well.
    My two boys are 22, and 20; and its been a great life.

    Congrats Liquid Tension! Just make sure when the little guy/girl grows up, to teach him/her the correct way to get a boat out of the water at Fletcher's pond when a storm is rolling in!

    There is no more difficult or rewarding task than being a parent. Congratulations. With 16, 13, and 9 year olds, I'm getting near the peak of my dumbness. I imagine that in a few more years I might start sliding upward on the intelligence scale of their minds. :D I know my dad got a lot smarter when I got a little older. ;)
  12. your not alone,i was with my wife for 16 yrs,99% chance she couldnt have kids. i was 39 wife is 10yrs younger than me,and one day the test came back posative......blew me away,haley was born 1 day before my 39th b day,well mom said she has to have someone to play with :rolleyes: so 3yrs later little casey was born........ive aged dramaticly ever since,so your not the only one :p congrats and enjoy dad...........

    Your life will change, and all for the better. Welcome to the club, and congrats!
  15. Congratz man! Kids are a joy, mine are 3 and 6 and it seems like just yesterday they were little babies!
  16. Congrats! It took my wife and I 3 years so I know what you went through. My wife called me at work one day and said you need to come, I think I might have to go to the doc. Well I'm rushing home thinking bad things and I get there and she is all smiles and says I have something for you and gave me a Tigger fishing pole with a bib that says "I love my daddy". What a great feeling. Now she is 8 months old and crawling all over the place and getting ready to use that pole. Wait till you hear the heart beat for the first time! DONT FIND OUT WHAT IT IS!! The excitement and the surprise are amazing. Most people I know found out what they were having but I tell everyone not to, its the biggest surprise of your life. Good luck!
  17. congrads! it is about time that you slipped 1 past the goalie. i just think you weren't getting in there deep enough :S

    i better make room in my garage for your boat. it will just be gathering dust at your place now. call me when you are allowed to go out. :D :D :D

    p.s.-thanks again for picking me up at the airport last night :)
  18. Hey congrats. My wife and I tried for a long time too and had our first just over a year ago. I know what you mean by all the emotions. Don't worry, you will be a find papa. Once you get into it, it kind of comes natural. We'll say an extra prayer that all goes well.
