    • Get lots of sleep now, because you aren't going to get much for the next 18 or so years... lol.
    • Learn how to change a diaper with your eyes glued shut with sleep.
    Congrats again! [​IMG]
  3. Thanks man, I've got a niece who I adore so I'm already pretty skilled with the diaper changing. Sleeping is my favorite activity so I'm gonna miss that.

    Well, you got the first part right.  The rest is a learn as you go process, sorry way. Just be patient, and go with what comes along. I have two boys 19 & 17, both very different. Just work at it every day and they turn out fine. Congrads

    Hey Steve congrats man!! I have 3 kids and 9 grandkids and I can tell you that just when you think you have one of them figured out something comes along to change it all. If you learn to roll with the punches and remember you are the dad first and the friend second it all works out in the end

    Congrats on the new upcoming arrival. Don't worry too much if it's a girl, she could become a smoking buddy just like Squirrel here[​IMG]

    Congrats. Thats awesome. My best advise is to buy all the toys that you want now because  when the Kid gets here toys take a back burner. 
  14. Buy stock in Advil [​IMG]
  15. Thanks everybody. We are really excited. If I have a girl that can cook like you Squirell I'll be happy!

    Congratulations, looks like you have been given lots of good, sound advice, this one just about sums them all up:
    All I can add is to remind you of what you have already learned here at SMF: don't trust anyone else with the preparation and don't leave them unattended.

    Congrats!  No more advice from me you've got plenty.

    My oldest daughter loves making sausage with me!  Not so much the younger one though.

    God Bless

    Congrats Steve !

    Practice your pitiful look---There is always a female around willing to volunteer to change that diaper for a pitiful looking man

    It's in their make-up!

    Women like to change diapers.

    Men & Squirrels like to drink beer, smoke meat, and fart & burp!.

    Don't make my mistake. I didn't know what caused it and the kids kept comin after the first one. On the last one someone finally filled me in.

    Cherish every minute with your child. Before you know it the years have passed.

    A big congrats.
