Apparently, my wife and I (mostly my wife) are pregnant with our third child – affectionately known as Junior Constantino or Junior “C” for short [see ultrasound photo insert taken at week 9].
As of today, 11/29/2012, the baby is 11 weeks old with a due date of June 19th, 2012. My wife and I are absolutely THRILLED at the prospect of re-parenting.
Ironically, one of our favorite shows happens to be the NBC comedy-drama Parenthood where one of the main couples (Adam and Kristina Braverman) happen to be in their early 40’s with two older kids who recently had a baby.
Hmmm…sounds familiar – I mean, talk about life mimicking art!
Personally, the timing couldn’t be better because I was starting to run out of things to blog about – now I’ve got a windfall of prenatal blog fodder that’s ripe and ready for sharing. Everything from the wonder of “morning sickness” to a baby’s lanugo is fair game.
In all seriousness, we’ve been trying for quite sometime and we’re ecstatic about the pending addition to our lives. We’re truly looking forward to experiencing all of this baby’s developmental milestones again, while sharing them with our daughters. It truly is a blessing and reminds me of a scripture from Psalm 127:3
“Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.”
I couldn’t have said it better…
Question: At this moment are you closer to your child leaving the womb or your child leaving home? How does that make you feel? Any advice you’d offer?
