Starting over

It's all becoming so real. We're having another baby, holy shit, we're having another baby! I'm going to be umm well you guys don't need to know but it's over 40. My daughter is having a baby too. I'm having a baby (well, Ash is doing the actual birthing and growing part) at the same time as my daughter. Which means come next year when everyone goes back to work I will be taking care of 2 new babies, a 3 year old Emma, and my 6 year old grand daughter.  Holy shit, I'm going back to work! I kid, I kid I'm looking forward to it. It'll be a mad house but I'm up for it.

On another note, I saw my family doctor today and we are giving me 3 months to make some health changes bring down my blood pressure, cholesterol, have a clear mammogram you know all that over 40 stuff so that I can begin the protocol to induce lactation so Ash and I can both breast feed the new baby like we did with Emma. I really didn't think she would be open to the idea because of my high blood pressure and family history of breast cancer but she agreed to do some research on her own on the process that I used with Emma so hopefully she'll be on board otherwise I'll do it anyways without her guidance as I'm really not willing to let much stand in the way.

Whoa! I am such a dumb gay but that is soooo cool you can both breast feed! Crazy.
Taking care of 4 little ones will keep you young. That will be tough, but also a pretty cool job :)
