To Zion...



I don't know what exactly is it but I've never been more excited to receive a gift like this, it's almost like everyday is December 24th. I can't explain the feeling of that seeing that sonogram, Before it was just rubbing monks belly and wondering what the heck was in there and what it looks like. I know the picture doesn't reveal much but it seems like I can already smell the scent, or see the little toes and fingers. For some reason I keep looking at that the picture hoping for it to move or at least speak to me. I'm not even a father yet but I can honestly say there's no feeling like this, like just a few months ago I was worrying about what outfit I would buy or How nice 32' rims would look but now this blessing has put me into a whole new mind state. Now its not anymore I's in my life instead I shall now embrace the word WE.

Now onto why the name of the post is Zion. In 1998 a one Ms. Lauryn Hill released the critically acclaimed "Miseducation of Lauryn Hill"

Well in a synopsis Lauryn is talking about how everyone feels its a bad idea for her and how she isn't ready, should be a little wiser about the decision and should continue her career and place children making on hold. While not exactly directed to my situation definitely a song I can relate too, although mostly everyone has been very excited and super supportive, certain family members have recieved the news with the excitement and joy one should have. I know a lot of them feel like oh he's young , not settled, etc however life is never planned the way you want it to be, curveballs are thrown at you each and everyday and it's all up to you how you handle it. I have the feeling as time goes along the one's who may have mixed feelings may soon open the edition with arms wider than open.

Word's cant explain the joy I feel right now. I still don't know the sex of the baby and still praying thats its a boy, however if a babygirl is in there brewing I will still cry, but I will also cry tears of joy, as long as its healthy and funny like me I will be fine. I'm not sure if many of you care about this but I feel like I will be keeping a trimester update up until Aug 20. (Due Date) that way when he/she is a little older can read the blogs and see how much anticipation was built around their arrival.

P.S. I also have a few things I would like to add to the blog. Like maybe a movie/Album or song of the week, Just cooler things to keep the spice over here :-)
