What a day!!!

Today was a good day for me!!! Even though I really don't have much to compare it too but the last 14 days. Ohh yea I was 2 weeks old yesterday. Man, how time is just flies by but, before you know it I'll be holding my own head up. I'm already making noises and it seems like I'm trying to talk but my folks know that's just a little too soon.
Ohh yea yesterday I went to the doctors office again and I really hate going there because they strip me down and I have to show my woo to everyone in the office. What the heck is up with that? How would my folks feel if they had to strip down and be thrown on a cold scale. The doctor is a nice lady but she keeps wanting me to come back every week and I don't understand why? She says I'm healthy and everything looks good! Heck she didn't even believe the M.A. that first took my weight so, I got thrown on the scale again. Yup I'm gaining weight back up to 7.9 oz my birth weight. The doctor thought I should be up a little more than that so I guess that is the reason why she wants me to come back again and again. Heck what the heck do I know I'm only two weeks and a day old. I'm allowed to make mistakes.

Today I had to go get my little hip ultra-sounded to make sure everything looked OK since the doctors at the hospital thought I may have a issue with it popping out of socket. But, today I was heading back and forth to the doctors office again to make sure everything with my hip is OK which it is. I'm really not liking these people at all. But, they are keeping my healthy and since I rely on my mommy the most and daddy too they know whats best for me....I guess

I wanna tell you about my diapers that I have been using. I love Pampers diapers!!!!!! The yellow line that turns blue when I wet truly helps out and my folks as new parents love it too. Plus we have tried other large name brand diapers and they leak like crazy. So I think all babies should unite for Pampers Diapers they rock!!!!

Trip has entered the world!!!!

Hello my name is Trip, Today I'm two weeks old. I'm having my father write this since all I pretty much do is eat, sleep and, poop at the moment. Let me explain to you the events that have transpired on the day I made my big arrival.

It was a Monday night(Sept. 26th) Mommy and Daddy check in at The Christ Hospital here in Cincinnati. They placed something around my mommy to get me ready to come into the world. I wasn't having it at all. So Tuesday they stated her on the inducing drugs to move things along. Then about 530/6 (Sept 27th) the nice comfy water that I have being living in just starting making the swooshing sound and I looked down and saw the water going in a spiral out of my little area. Then things got quite very quite for just a few minutes. Then all of a sudden I feel this cold hand coming up and checking to see where I was at. I felt a little bit of tugging on my cord that has been feeding me this whole time. Little did they know that I had played a trick on them the first of many to come I'm sure. What was it? I turned and put my feet down first. I think the adults call this being breech. Then my second trick was to take my feet and pushed the cord so it was coming out first. I thought it was kinda of funny but I heard all kinds of commotion out in the world that I didn't know about and then I thought what have I done. The doctors seemed to be real worried so the next thing I know I feel the cold, cold air(6:32 pm) of the O.R. and a bunch of rather large people tugging and pulling on me under this heat lamp. Then I was wrapped up and handed to my dad. Daddy showed me to my Mommy and we were one happy family. They finished sewing up mommy, daddy and I were whisked away to the special care unit where I got stuck and had my first bath. I really didn't like it but after it was all said and done I'm Happy to be here and can't wait to see what the I have to offer to the world

6 weeks to go

Well, things are wonderful here waiting for baby. Everyone that is in our lives as we wait has just been great. But, I think Mom and Dad are starting to get a little anxious just having to wait. We spend our time at Lamaze class on Monday nights, washing and rewashing Trip's little cloths. Mom has them folded and put in your drawers according to months. Dad got the book shelf put together twice lol.
How are we going to do this? How is it going to happen? What are the logistics of the birth where is Dad going to be and where is Mom going to be and how is Dad going to get Mom to the hospital with out freaking out. These are just some of the questions that are going through Dad's mind. Dad thinks he is having more mood swing and hormones than Mom right now. Dad just wants to do everything right. Dad never thought he would be scared and worried about having another living person in his life that he has to take care of. Dad has taken care of dogs and cats but you can't just leave a little man in a crate or just out in the house to roam free all day. We have that part figure out and Thank God for my Sister and her husband they are truly special people in our lives. Mom and Dad got Trip's little room done and ready to go all we need now is little man. But that brings Dad back to worrying because last night at class he held a preemie diaper in his hand and that really scared him. Why? well its like this would we want Trip to be here with us now but he still needs more time to cook. Dad thinks its kinda like waiting for a good Gumbo that has been cooking in the slow cooker and you wanna taste it but if you do open the lid it might destroy the final product.
Like I said Mom and Dad have most of the Baby's room done check out some of the pictures

Trip's Jounrey

Hello, there first I would like to welcome you to this blog. This blog is going to be an interesting social experiment. My Wife is pregnant with our first child. This child is the first for both of us ( Yes, I know now a days this is a bit different but its just the way things worked out). Like I was saying this is our first child and its A BOY !!!!!!. We both our soo happy, proud scared and all the other emotions that come with becoming a new parent. And yes I want the world to see my wonderful little boy. So this is the idea of the blog. I'm going too document his entire childhood over the net and a father can only hope that one day he, Michael D Gates III a.k.a "Trip" for triple will take over the site.
The blog will included everything from his successes and his failures. The first thing you should about little Trip is that he is due on Sept. 22 of this year. So We are about 26 weeks along and the little guy has had a tremendous journey already. Last Saturday I felt his first punch (that I could feel) I can't tell you how I as the future father felt but at the same time I it hit me like a ton bricks and I now have a sense of urgency to get things ready for little Trip.
So I hope that you join us in experiencing Trip's journey.
God Bless
