    My 228 was riding IWB the entire time for the 2nd child, and the PM9 went back with me for all the visits. I didnt stay in the hospital with her cause of my older child needed me at home...and I hate hospitals.

    Really your goal is not to disarm the bomb, but keep it from going off while you change the blast shield around it.

    Keep in mind that it is loaded and it WILL go off if you expose it to air. Be ready to drop a diaper on top, even if it's a new one, with zero notice. Otherwise you end up with a friendly fire incident.

    The shorter the time between changing his diaper and needing to leave, the more likely that he will empty his little bladder all over your clothes, his clothes, Lima's clothes, the diaper bag, and the car seat (even though it is 50 feet away and in a locked car!).

    JD, if I remember right, a respirator with either the organic vapor (black stripe) or acid gas (yellow stripe) filter should do the job with diaper changes. Be prepared to feel a little over-protective and a maybe little jealous when anyone gets to fussing with your little guy (and that's OK). When our oldest daughter was a newborn (24 years ago), she had colic, and I discovered there were things to watch on (pre-cable) TV all night. You'll find better stuff now with cable, I'll wager, though I pray you and Lima don't have to find out. Be blessed !

    I have a feeling that when Daddy is in the vicinity NO ONE is going to get a chance to even look at him, even me.

    I see how protective and greedy he is with his toys and cat and I can only imagine it's going to get 100,000,000,000x worse with his son!

    Don't forget the middle of the night feedings, its like pulling fire watch. You can't sit down or go to sleep and you will be walking up and down the hall the whole time.

    Get yourself a little cheapy TV and mount it somewhere in the baby's room. I built some custom shelving in my daughters closet before she was born, and had a little 14" TV stashed in there with cable. It was a life saver before laptops and WiFi.

    Well, seeing as how we don't have television (no cable, no satellite, no bunny ears) I'm thinking the late night TV watching is going to be out.

    We do have a TV but we can only watch movies or play video games.

    I'm pretty sure both of us will have all four seasons of HOUSE memorized (we have them on DVD) as well as CSI.

    And you'll probably see us on DC quite a bit!

    JD Lima, it's only the first 3 months that you go without sleep, after that you can get atleast 3-4 hours a night.

    If he is changing diapers, the bomb already went off! He will just collect the debris and make sure the biohazard is contained.

    It amazes me what those tiny bodies can produce. They eat the same thing everyday and its measured in ounces. What comes out the other end is different everyday and is measured in pounds; simply amazing. Different smells, amounts and even colors. Baby poo should be one of the worlds wonders.

    JD, it is essential that Limatunes isn't carrying while delivering (not that those hospital gowns have many places for concealment - it sure doesn't conceal much of the wearer). I've heard of women loudly informing the hospital staff about their husband's ancestry and personal habits, so who knows what could happen if the lady is armed.

    On the serious side, one of the terrific things Paymeister did for me when our baby was new was he'd get her in the middle of the night when she cried and bring her to me to nurse, so I didn't have to get up. It was a godsend, as I was so tired.

    It gets better every month, and then they go to college... wait, how did that happen???

    God bless you guys and little Garrett. I wish you guys all the best, and am eagerly waiting to hear good news.
