Holy shit I have a kid

I could probably keep this as a recurring post title.

I think it all the time. On my way to get cash from the ATM. When I'm hanging downstairs while he's sleeping upstairs and I hear him on the monitor. When I go to feed him in the middle of the night and he yawns and stretches backward in my hands. When I'm making coffee. When I see Staci in the morning. When I think about what we're doing on the weekend. On my walk to my favorite Vietnamese restaurant. When I hear Indian music and subsequently want Indian food for dinner. When I'm a few blocks away from home on my scooter.

Pretty much all the time it hits me that I have this awesome boy. It also hits me how incredibly tiny he is and how he's starting to get a personality.

And I think about what he's going to be like when he's older. I can't wait to see what kind of person he becomes, but I don't want to rush things...however I am so curious. I also think about when he's 12 and 13 and such and he's a total pain in the ass.

Holy shit I have a kid..and that's pretty cool.

  4. Yeah, it's an awesome feeling, that doesn't go away, at least not in the first 16 months.

    That picture is awesome. Also now I want panang curry for lunch, so thanks for that as well.

  8. I feel that way every day. And now that he can talk? It's even more amazing. Because not only do I have a kid, but I have a kid who loves me and says so!

  9. I'm completely with you on this one. I spent the first 5 months thinking to myself "Holy shit! I have a kid!"

    My daughter is 5 months old. I've been keeping a blog about my adventures in this, not as regularly as you have been. I'm only able to post about once a week because otherwise all of my posts would be "LOOK HOW AMAZING MY DAUGHTER IS!! HOLY SHIT I HAVE A DAUGHTER!!! HOW CAN I BE A DAD??"

    I think that might get old after a while.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts.
