OFF-TOPIC: Baby Pick Is Almost Here!!!

By Adam Pick on March 30, 2009

Thanks so much for your emails about the anticipated arrival of Baby Pick.

If you didn’t know… Robyn, my very pregnant wife, and I wife are expecting our first child, a baby boy, to arrive somewhere around April 13. As you would imagine, we are incredibly excited and somewhat nervous.

Robyn and I have been “nesting” like crazy. Everyday now, I’m assembling something for the little guy. First, the stroller. Then, his swing. Then, his car seat. Then, some furniture. Then, some more furniture. Then, it was time to hang the shelves. It doesn’t stop!

The best part is… Robyn and I are having A LOT of fun getting the nursery all set up.

 


Robyn – After We Assembled The Stroller

 

As for classes, we just finished our breastfeeding class last night. And, we recently finished our birthing class. To be safe, we also took an infant CPR class.

Robyn started her disability leave today! I’m extremely happy about that as Robyn has entered the “very uncomfortable” time of her pregnancy. Robyn isn’t sleeping very well and the 6 pound, 4 ounce Baby Pick really likes kicking her bladder.

If you’re curious:

  • Yes, Robyn’s hospital bag is packed.
  • Yes, my camera is fully charged.
  • Yes, Baby Pick’s clothes are washed and waiting.
  • Yes, we have picked out a name but we’re keeping it a secret for now.

When Baby Pick decides to come… We’ll be ready!!! 🙂

Keep on tickin!
Adam

Adam,

My best to you and Robin. Robin looks absolutely gorgeous with her beaming glow. And Dad, you too have that “new Papa glow” going too.

As for the kicking of little baby Pick…maybe he got confused everytime you write keep on “ticking” and he thought you said keep on “kicking”. (Ha Ha)

But seriously, best of everything to you both and my prayers are with you and Robin.

Adam, I will celebrate my 65th Birthday on April 13, exactly 6 days short of the 8th month anniversary of my Aortic Valve replacement. I feel wonderful. It would be very nice if Baby Pick would arrive on my birthday.

I am looking forward to hearing of your baby’s safe arrival on April 13. On the 15th of April, I will be having a valve replacement and by-pass in Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria BC, Canada.

I read your book and it has become like my daily Bible reading. Thank you so much.
