Baby's Coming soon...

39 weeks later... I think we are prepared as we can be, at least financially. Of course we could have done better, but we have to work with what we have. I wont be posting here for at least a week or so, however I will be back blogging about our baby girl and learning to live off of what we have saved in the past couple months. It should be interesting. I've been also killing it at work (thats a good saying), and getting everything wrapped up before time's up for me to be at home with my wife and baby. I guess it comes down to working up til now for myself and my financial debt, to my wife and our finances and being debt free, to the meaning of living for my child and making sure my family is taken care of, puts it into perspective. I guess responsibility and being grown up isnt going to be half bad for someone like me. I'm updating the networth sheet for Feb too.

I keep checking back hoping for news! Be sure to let us know when the little bambina arrives. Good luck to you both, and here's to a fast labor and easy delivery and, most important of all, a healthy baby and mom.

Wishing you all the very best :-)
