Being a dad

The last 5 months have been amazing and exhausting, rewarding and frustrating. For the last five months I have been a dad to my beautiful little man – Jack.

Tonight Jack is having a hard time getting some sleep. We have been pretty lucky lately with his sleep. He has learned to relax himself and sleep on his own in his own bed – most of the time anyway. Tonight however he is sick with a cold. This is making sleeping flat a difficult proposition since his throat seems to fill with goop, causing him to cough and wake himself up.

Right now he is draped across my lap, asleep with the tele filling the empty silence of the dark night. I am going to have to try and get him to sleep before I doze off myself.

new baby – Jack Charles Coster

For anyone that we haven’t told yet and who is still reading this blog, I have a little bit of news….
Adrienne and I are expecting a new addition to the family. As I type here at just before midnight, Adrienne is all snuggled up with a little baby boy wriggling around in her belly. We have just started to feel a little bit of motion. Here is a tracking tool to describe where she is at right now.

pregnancy due date

Since it moves with time I’ll mark here what it says today.

‘twenty more weeks before Mommy can have a nice strong, margarita…or five. I’m 19 weeks & 4 days old, only 143 days to go!’

Wow. Only 143 day’s. To say the least it has been ‘exciting’ trying to make competely new plans to accomodate this new adventure.
