Stephen,,, Congratulations to you and your wife on your future delivery of a new LJ or LJette. As the saying goes… “It all comes out in the end.” 25 plus years ago, our 2nd son (as per the ultrasound) was born. SHE is currently finishing her PHD at Florida State. Sometimes you just don’t know till they show up and make you smile and cry with joy. God Bless you, you wife and the baby.

Congratulations. This is a wonderful time for your family. And you still have plenty of time to get a changing table and/or crib ready before the baby gets here. After that your woodworking time will probably be curtailed somewhat. :)

I have two kids and one on the way as well. We will have our first ultrasound of our newest within a week or two. I’ll have to say that raising kids is the most challenging thing I’ve ever experienced but also the most rewarding.

There is something awesome about watching the next generation on the ultrasound machine. Kind of like God is letting us see into His workshop…

Congratulations. Get the most out of the first 3 months, I think they are the most difficult. And remember, your wife is always the most beautiful woman you have ever known … no matter what, and I mean no matter what! Have fun.

You are in for a great time. Raising kids is the most important responsibility you’ll ever have.

Boy or girl, don’t push them too hard to take up your hobby. I think I tried too hard with my two sons.

Congratulations!! Boy or girl, it’s all the same when it comes to babies; big difference in teenagers. Don’t forget to put the ultrasound pics in the photo album as first pics. Wishing you and your wife all the best with the pregnancy and delivery.
