Updates have been sparse as of late thanks to a full schedule and increasing demands at home. We’re approximately T-minus 21 days from our 2nd son arriving. As you’d imagine that means a lot of preparation, stress, and wondering.
Some of the more pleasurable prep work has been enjoying time with my 1st son, who is nearly 4, going to places like Yosemite and Point Lobos. I can’t say when I’ll take both sons to such beautiful locations to appreciate nature, but odds are its not going to be for a while. I’ve really enjoyed the ability to experience these locations with my son. Not only has it been an amazing experience to see his reaction, but it has also let my mind wander pondering what son #2 will be like. In my minds eye I see him as a figure on the edge of a void lacking distinguishing characteristics. Characteristics I long to know hair color, eye color, what his laugh & voice will sound like, what interests he’ll have, etc. Waiting for the arrival of a new child is an interesting experience. The best way to describe it is trending to the unknown… a steady and slow movement to meet someone one step away from a void only to turn around and journey with them into the unknown of life.
