The Times They Are A' Changing

I know I sound like every other first time parent out there, but I honestly cannot believe how much our lives have changed since we brought Jacob into this world two months ago. Along with meeting and marrying Wendy, this has been the greatest experience of my life, and it's only just begun. Parenthood can be best described as this : the most joyful, terrifying, stressful, calming, hopeless, uplifting, boring and exciting thing ever. And I have been loving every minute of it. Here are a few things I've observed since Jake showed up:

--I used to stay up until 12:30 or 1:00a.m. playing video games or watching TV. Now, we are dragging if we aren't in bed by 9:30.
--I used to gag and get as far away as possible when my sibling would change their kid's diapers. Now I've learned that can hold my breath for a solid two minutes.
--That white truck that drives in the left lane everywhere it goes has a "For Sale" sign on it.
--A night in three times as exciting as a night out used to be.
--I understand why people put those "Baby On Board" stickers on their vehicles, geez I think every car is out to hit our C-RV.

Everyone told me our lives would change more than I could ever imagine, mostly for the better, I honestly didn't believe them. Things have changed and I could never imagine my life without Jake or Wendy in it. So yeah, I'd say everything has changed for the better! So I just want to take this chance to thank everyone on the blog and Facebook for all the kind words of congratulations and encouragement (and gifts!). An especially big thanks to all the blog friends, Obi, Jarhead, Sili, RPM, Denney, Gerald and anyone else out there!
