Our wonderful friends recently threw us a great baby shower. It was cool to have foods at the shower from multiple different Asian cultures like Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Filipino. One of our friends even got a recipe from the Kimchi Mamas on how to make a Korean dish. The best part of the shower was to see the ethnic diversity of our friends and how they all had a good time together. I think the only scary part of the shower was them posting up a picture of our soon to be baby which was a morphed picture of my wife and I. I sure hope our baby turns out a lot better looking than that picture.
The baby is due in just a few weeks, and I am starting to have some palpitations and diarrhea. I don't know if some of the dad's went through this before their first child was born, but I have moments of excitement and moments of sheer panic. I can't believe I am going to be a parent of this child. The baby shower was pretty much the icing on the cake that this baby is real and that my wife and I are going to have a son. Sometimes it all seems so surreal. Any tips of how to deal with those moments of fear that happen before the baby is born besides running to the bathroom... Oh the woes of irritable bowel...
