Ultrasound time...

Last week my wife and I had our first ultrasound. It was so amazing to watch this little baby move all over on the screen. I could have sat there all day and watched it. I was almost hypnotized. Things are starting to feel more real and that is not a bad thing. It is great to think the someone will soon be depending on me to help them grow and shape their life.

The ultrasound tech was trying to get some measurements and the baby was being difficult (her genes) but after a short break it was more cooperative (my genes).

The facial features are still forming but you can make out the head and body.

Sick today

I am out sick today. I usually don't take a lot of sick days but today is the 4th day in a row I have had a sore throat and am starting to cough. I hate feeling like you are a walking zombie. Im also trying to not take anything because I don't like medicine.

That's all...

Work work work

I feel like everyone is posting about work lately but I kind of need to. Perhaps I just need to hear myself think but lately work has been weird. I have been at Roswell for almost 7 years (April 2nd) and have moved to 3 different positions. I started out at the helpdesk and after 2 years moved to the server team. Two years after that I decided to jump to the network team. Don't get me wrong I love being on the network team. It is something that I really enjoy doing. My job involves everything from wireless, switches, routers and firewalls.

Lately though I feel like I am missing the boat on new technology and concepts. Several years ago I got my Cisco certification (CCNA) and let it expire. I know I know big mistake! I am trying to talk myself into starting the process again. I want to feel excited about diving in and learning again. It has been a while since I have studied outside of work experience. This week I am going to try and get my learn on. I think it's kind of like going to the gym. Once you get in a groove then there is no stopping you.

Changing fast....for the better

I am on the verge of turning 30. My birthday this year falls on Easter Sunday and I can't remember the last time that has happened if at all. Some would probably be freaked out about turning 30 but I am excited.

I was given a card with some money in it from my coworkers on Friday. They all knew I wanted to get a PS3 so I immediately went out and got one along with Rockband. I believe they all secretly just wanted to play it and no buy it themselves :) Needless to say we had a blast. Here are some pics to prove it:

On a totally other unrelated topic my wife and I are expecting our first child. We started telling people officially this week which is so much fun. At this point I am a little nervous but I am sure that will go away.

Thank you everyone for coming to my party....it was a great time for me and looks like for everyone else also.
