OH NO!!!

Does that really say 11 days away???? In the immortal words of Catdoggg, "Holy Crap!!!!"

First off, I was led to an article recently about the haves and have nots of blogging. Evidently, the one and only thing that really matters is constant updating. OOPS!!

What the hell do I know?

I just think Catdoggg wants me to continue with this so I can build up a readership and enter the top 25 and get that FREE TRIP TO AMSTERDAM. I guess this past month or so the top 25 blogs were sent to Amsterdam for free.

SWEET!!!

What can I say? I'll try to maintain this site. See, one of my problems is that I have way too many things to discuss/rant/share that I wasn't sure what I should focus on.

Is this site entirely dedicated to Babydog and my growing family or can it be a little bit of both. I think now that Babydog is almost upon us. OH GOD!!! That the majority of the blog will be about him/her, but I would like to add everyday rants, raves, etc. Build up the readership. Have a consistently updated blog.

How does that sound?

Anyway, the countdown begins. My guess is Babydog will squirt out on March 2nd. I believe Catdoggg said March 7th. It's gonna be close. For those of you that know me, I'll do anything to win. Maybe some more of my super sperm will help induce the Catdoggg on my predicted date. I'll have to get her when she's sleeping. :)

Lataaaaah...

p.s. Kiki, nice job on the gift for Catdoggg...

p.p.s. Where's mine?

Belly Wars

Catdoggg and I have been meaning to do this for a while now and until only recently did we have a chance to follow through. As I said the other day. Catdoggg's belly is finally growing. You can actually tell she might be pregnant now. Trust me though, it's still hard to tell especially from the backside. Might I add her butt looks fantastic, but check out this photo from 4 days ago. We were at Ikea and I snapped this from behind. I couldn't believe it.





Is that a back of a woman who is 9 months pregnant? Incredible.


But back to my original post. The fact that her belly is finally showing we really wanted to get some photos of her and my father's belly next to eachother to see whose is biggest.

See if you can guess which belly is my Dad's and which one is Catdoggg's....







I can see the confusion here. They both look similar. Let's check the next photo.







Hmm, a side profile shows a bit more. Can you guess which belly is whose? Here's the answer.







I think this is a great picture. Aren't they both oh so cute? If we could ever arrange it. We would like to add Catdoggg's father in here as well. Three bellies wearing the same shirt. Now that would be a contest.

In case you're wondering, here's another photo of the Belly War. Look at Catdoggg. If you look closely, you can see she's showing me that she's my number one fan. Isn't she great... :)

Geez, I'm Sorry...

I know I have been slacking big time lately, but I have many solid reasons behind my lack of updates.

First and foremost, BABYDOG.

Noooo! Babydog is still in mamma's womb, but trying to get everything prepared and set up in time can be exhausting. Especially when Catdoggg likes to put things off to the last minute. I like to be prepared, she likes to wing it. I believe a combination of both works best.

I've been having way too much fun looking and buying baby toys, gadgets, bedding, fixing up Babydog's room, etc, etc, etc...

How freaking cool is BABIES "R" US? When I first walked in there, I said to myself, "Why haven't I been here earlier?" I see all these teeny tiny baby toys and clothes and it's soooo exciting. I'm running around, grabbing toys, holding up clothes, playing with and probably breaking everything I can get my hands on. It's a blast, but then like any gooood drug, I crash. Oh my God!!! I'm gonna have a baby. I'm gonna be a father. I turned to Catdoggg and I believe my exact words were, "I don't wanna have a baby." Then the drug dealer came back and I found the bestest, coolest, lightest Babydog tool ever. The bomb diggity of my own savage amusement. The CADILLAC of strollers. The Peg Perego Pliko P3 Mint and I was hooked again. CHECK ME OUT! Fatherhood, here I come!!!

When I told my sister this story, she made me laugh because I didn't realize how I sounded. She asked if I realized how excited I was about a stroller... A stroller. Coming from the guy who likes his beer, pizza, maxim magazine. I watch UFC, I laugh hysterically at figure skaters who fall, gotta have my internet porn, XBOX, Baseball, Football, Hockey, anything involving a ball and contact and here I am getting a hardon for a baby stroller. Too funny....

I love TOYS "R" US just as much if not a little more. There are a few that are going out of business up here, so Catdoggg did some checking and we went to one in the not so safe part of town. Let me just tell you that the only way I can describe it is that it reminded me of what the stores looked liked after Katrina blew through. Awful, just awful... I felt like the last homeless guy in line at the buffet.

Somehow I just managed to offend a huge section of America. OOPS. Good thing I'm not running for office. At least I know my limitations Reilly. :)

Anyway, if you don't know me, anyone can tell ya that I'm a big child. Peter Pan syndrome. I think Babydog and I will have plenty things in common. Finally!!! Someone I can relate to...

Catdoggg is doing great. Her belly has actually gotten a little bit bigger. I have updated photos coming for you.

I've taken a newborn essentials class and have taken the tour of the hospital. I have to tell you about this later. Lets just say I will be the absolute worst at swaddling Babydog.

I have New Years Pics... Videos too, but I still can't figure out how to post them on my blog.

There has been tons of stuff. New gym membership as well. I gave Catdoggg's mom's dog a Mohawk, tore up Catdoggg's basement but let me tell you the one and only reason it has been so hard for me to update my blog. Two words for ya..


ELECTRIC BLANKET!!!




And that is yet another story....
