Welcome to In the Mind of the Man blog. Here I will try to keep a sort of running diary of my thoughts and experiences about raising a child from a male's point of view. After hearing countless people tell me that her childhood will be over in a Blink of an Eye, I decided to take time to stop and reflect on the day to day mundane activities my daughter and I share. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing in my journey, but most of all I hope my daughter and I enjoy looking back at this blog 20+ years from now and laughing.

It’s Extraordinary! Everything’s Normal!


1.  conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural.

2.  the average or mean:

A word that would otherwise not be too impressive of an adjective, I will gladly, and whole-heartedly, accept now and for the next 7 months.

Here are some other words I would not mind hearing the doctor say about our baby:
average, common, commonplace, ordinary, regular, routine, run-of-the-mill, standard, typical, or usual

So we heard the baby’s heartbeat.  He / She’s working hard in there to grow and be healthy.  And Heather is doing everything right on the outside. 

We found out we are actually 6 weeks and 6 days pregnant today.  We thought we were 7 weeks 4 days… but what do we know! 

Anyway, baby is 9.4 mm long and has a heart rate of 146 beats per minute.  I’m not sure what this all means exactly, only that it is… NORMAL.

Here are some pics of the little one.
