Up until this point, the baby’s arrival seemed so far away, but, now that New Years has come and gone, reality has set in… Our baby’s landing on planet Earth is getting closer by the day.


Ilyse and I are trying to prepare for this small change in our life together. As delivery draws near, we have been hit with a flood of emotions from pure excitement to sheer nervousness.  I wake up every morning at 5 and spend an hour or so in the living room just thinking of the changes to come.  


This weekend, Ilyse and I went with Grandma Marlene to IHOP.  I don’t know if it was so much to satisfy Ilyse’s pregnancy craving or mine.  I loved every minute of the stack of Buttermilk Pancakes!  We then went to Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us to begin shopping for the little one.
