    First Time Father!

    Well, my wife is almost 12 weeks along now so we decided to start telling people at our church and at work, so I figured I'd let you guys know that I'm going to be a dad!

    I'm still nervous about the idea but I'm excited at the same time. If I can be half as good of a father as mine has been to me, I'm sure my kid will turn out alright. Going to need lots of strength and guidance from the Lord, though.

    My wife doesn't like name choices so far for boys: John Moses F., Carl Walther F., and Samuel Colt F.

    Here's an ultrasound pic from our 9-week visit. To be honest, I was expecting to see a smushy blob, so this picture took me by surprise. Also, hearing the heartbeat was awesome

    Congratulations. Your are gonna lose a lotta sleep, spend a ton of money and go through tons of stress but, in the end, it is all sooo worth it.
    My prayers go to you and your wife for a healthy delivery and a healthy child.

    Perhaps she'd prefer "Gaston", a guaranteed winner.

    Congradulations! If you have a past you can learn from Im sure youll be fine. Besides, this isnt something you just know how to do on the first time out. Best of luck to you and the Mrs!

    Id go with Sam Colt personaly. Sounds best plus being a Connecticut native Im biased.
