    Alright Ryan!! Good luck buddy! I have 2 kids and another on the way. i too was scared when i first go the news and it took sometime before I really accepted what was abotu to happen....but once that baby arrives you wil feel something that only a parent can. It is so awesome, words cant even describe it.

    I wish you luck, let me know if there is anything I can help you with!!

    Thanks so much Joey! Yeh ive never really been a kid person, so thats the scariest part. I hope everything goes well. I have heard that once you see your kid for the first time, thats when everything falls into place. So nervous...

    It is super nerve racking...but things will get better....just support your girl and be ready for some serious mood swings.....Give her lots of love and back rubs and keep the peanut butter and ice cream on tap!

    No one ever is ready to be a dad, anyone who says they are are liars....it is somethign you can never really prepare for.....You just do your best to be as prepared as possible and hope and pray for a healthy birth for both the child and mom!! The rest is all easy.......well i take that back...its never easy! But it is FUN!!

    Congrats...I met my wife when she was pregnant and at the time I was not ready to be a father...I could have ditched her but I fell in love. Its been 14 years since that day and my son is taller then me and a ton smarter. My son plays guitar, he can sing and he wants to be a pilot (He has many things on his plate like me!!).

    Enjoy it while they are young...mine is entering high school this year (9th grade)...the same high school in which I graduated from 15 years ago! Times flies once they hit school!!
