    If only you could see all of his Marine Corps stuff!

    He has two digital camo beanie hats (one desert, one woodland). He has a pair of overalls with an EGA on the front of them.

    I want to make him a Marine Corps blanket. He's already being indoctrinated...lol

    You're not kidding. By my last count I have put on 17 pounds and he hasn't even hit his final growth spurt yet.

    What's a 3# gun after all that?

    As much as I love knowing that I'm carrying our wonderful son, I'm VERY ready to be over with all of this..lol.

    I want my old body back and I want to stop being kicked, punched, kneed, head-butted in the stomach, back, lungs, ribs.... Yeah.. I'm ready for this little guy to be born.

    Here is his teddy bear wearing one of his beanies...

    OMG!!! Are those REAL diapers in the picture? I didn't think anyone even sold them anymore. The diaper pail with bleach water was always such a joy.

    JD. Being a Marine, I know I don't need to remind you about backup plans. But what if it actually turns out to be a girl. I know the ultrasound said boy, but stranger things have happened.

    I thought for sure it would be John Moses.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    It's slightly off subject, but as a long-time student of human communication, may I suggest avoiding non-standard "speech" such as baby talk around your child. Children learn from the beginning; teach correctly from the beginning and incorrect patterns are never learned. Talking to your child will make him smarter.

    'Tis just my thought and suggestion. May G-d make him like Ephraim and Menashe (Gen 48:20).
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I would guessed the babys name who have been Smith Wesson. My 1 year old middle name is "HITCH" I figured HITCH KING.COM would have been to long.

    Those are the same that we use, we used dispoable for the first three months (you'll see why) and now use cloth and only use disposable at night (again you'll see why).

    Garrett Matthew sounds like a great name for the little one. We'll be very interested to see a picture or two (or more) when the baby is born. The wife and I were wondering how you're doing. Good to hear you can sit down while you work.

    Speaking of names, some friends were thinking of "Browning" as the name for their soon-to-be-born son. But the husband's mother spoiled that when she said that Browning sounded like something in a baby's diaper.

    Lima, you genuinely don't look seven months!
    My poor Mama looked like an olive on a toothpick.
    Talking "regular talk" to your baby instead of "baby talk" will indeed enhance his native intelligence. Reading to a child is also proven to improve intelligence; it also fosters a love of learning, and I bless my dear (and still skinny) Mama for reading to us, and fostering that love of reading and of good books.
    My grandson is a Marine. No better thing to be!
    Do you realize how many proud uncles you'll have come November, all of us hoisting a glass of something good, and probably a good percentage enjoying a fine Cuban in your (and Garrett's) honor? (Not to mention the proud aunts, who will probably offer more intelligent suggestions on child care than I!)
    Carry on!
