Today, Tuesday the 15th September 2009, is our due date. Our little Ruby is officially ready to be born and I’m about to become a father.
Holy shite! Is it nine months gone already?
I have little moments of realisation of what is to come. My impending fatherhood, sleepless nights and the responsibility for another life. These realisations jolt me back into reality in a very, very good way. I’m ready for this. I want it. I need it.
Ruby isn’t quite ready yet, though. Jo is looking in exceptional health at the moment and our baby is content in the womb, although she’ll appear at some point in the next 12 days whether she wants to or not!
I’m ready Ruby. Come to Daddy, and be good to Mummy on the way out.
