Yeah I can't wait. This will be the longest he fastest 9 months I'll ever live I think. Congratulations on your new bundle! We are hoping for a girl first. I'll need a boy to spoil with trick related paraphanelia though!

I'm going crazy already and I've only known for 2 days. I spent 80 bucks on books off amazon last night lol and tonight im researching everything from cloth diapers to cribs and carriers. I can't wait to tell my parents, my mom has been bugging my wife and I for years! (we were married in 2010, we are both 25 now)

I'm a little worried about the ease of a car seat in my truck. It's high and a 2 door. I imagine a car seat is safe in the middle seat since there are no air bags in mine right?

Well congrats and I can't say I know how you feel since I haven't heard the words from the ole lady that she is pregnant yet... Fingers crossed cuz I want to spend some more money on the truck first lol

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

Congrats to you both!!! That's awesome! You got 9 months to get some truck mods done....
Seriously, being a parent is an awesome thing. Regardless of the sex of the baby, he/she will have you wrapped around their finger for the rest of your days. IMO, that's a great thing!!!

I'm now a grandpa (they call me Papa) and it happened all over again!
