It is official...
Cohen Eric Nelson will be here by August 13, 2008 or sooner. We set this date as Tif's induction day. We went to the doctor yesterday, and everything is still going really well. As far as the doctor says, Tif has not made any progress but the baby's head is still down, so that is good news. In regards to the date, Tif would like you to pray for the baby to come on 8/8/08 as she really likes the number 8 and believes this will increase the babies coolness level 10 fold.
As I come to grips with the fact that I will be a dad soon, I have to ponder what kind of a dad I will be. I mean... my actions will affect the choices he will make his entire life. What will Cohen grow up to be... What will he become... What should I instill in him.
Will he be one with the Dark Knight or The Man of Steel?
Do I show him my all out devotion to the Baylor Bears, or should I push
him towards the much less expensive love of his LaLa and BEVO? Hook'em Horns.
Right BEVO. Sorry Pops, I just can't send him to Tech. Lubbock is just a cruel and
Is he an Elvis man or a Beatles Man?
Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John... Which one will it be?
He has to make some decisions and I will be there to help. I will introduce him to Seinfeld, Soccer, Dr Pepper, Lee Trull, Nintendo, Chili's Queso, ESPN, The Dallas Cowboys, SNL, The David Crowder Band, Harrison Ford, 12 Angry Men, and of course HDTV to name a few.
I think I am going to let Tif school him about Anal Thermometers, The Mall, and
Cirque Du Solei.
But in all honesty, I will love him. I will teach him integrity, faith, hope, joy, character, and everything my parents have taught me to be the man I am today.
Bring it On August 13.
