Tressa stopped through town to show off her gorgeous (who would have guessed Tressa had a pretty baby, weird), 2 week old baby girl Riley this week. Of course, out of town guests means chow down time at Pasta Jay's for the rest of us. Sarah & Tressa met Jill & I in Boulder Thursday night for some Chicken Julianna, my absolute favorite dish, and so that Sarah & Tressa could laugh about handing Riley off to me the second we arrived. Tressa is pretty much a sibling, she's had honorary White status (maybe "honorary White" is a bit of an oxymoron) for years and years.
Little did they know I'm now a pro at this baby stuff after my intensive 3 hours of training via Daddy Boot Camp. I'm totally unfazed, cool and collected. OK maybe I'm just a bit less nervous than before, but something tells me I'll get used to it.
We're getting very, very close to having our own addition. 8 days and counting till the proposed due date, although Jill & I both agree we're expecting Coop to be late. The "about to have a baby" thing didn't really strike me upside the head until Tress had Riley. When that happened a couple weeks ago, I've gotten super excited and am ready to have this kid show up. Of course you can remind me of this sentiment in a month when I'm walking around with blood-shot eyes in a zombie state from no sleep, but even then I'm sure I'll be a very proud dad.
