In one of my last posts I mentioned one of the great games we played at my shower.
See, I’m not typically one for shower games and my friend {Kate} knows that.
So, she did a great job of coming up with a few that really turned out to be fun - and that means a lot coming from the girl who usually can't stand them (get that diaper shmeered with chocolate out of my FACE!)

One was a onesie decorating contest. I was the judge and got to keep them all in the end.
Let’s just say there were some adorable ones and some others that probably will never make it on my boy (in public at least!)

The second was a trivia game about famous parents on tv.

Then there was this game.
She emailed curtis a list of questions to answer.
He wasn’t allowed to talk to me about them or look up the answers.
Then he emailed her back his responses.
At the shower she asked me the questions and wanted to know if I could guess what he said.
Let’s just say, it was hilarious – and now you’ll see why –

Here are the questions from Kate and Curtis’ responses, taken right from the email:

How many diapers does a newborn go through each day?
20, but if I had it my way, I would hold the kid over the toilet once every hour and hope I get lucky.

How many diapers do you plan to change each day?
My theory is, if you're the one making the food, you should have to see it all the way through. When Micah starts eating Nestle/Gerber products, we'll talk! But honestly, I will change diapers whenever I possibly can.

How many hours does a baby sleep each day?
20 hours

At what age does a baby start sleeping through the night?
6 months

At what age does a baby start eating solid food?
1 year

How long does it take for the belly button stump to fall off?
Belly button stump? It’s called a penis! And I hope it doesn't fall off! (j/k, 2-3 weeks)

Do you think your baby will be born with a lot of hair?
Yes! Dark brown hair just like daddy! (which Jess will no doubt fashion into a mullet before he can open his eyes)

How big do you think the baby is going to be? lbs and inches?
7lbs 2oz, 26" Long

How many kids do you want to have?
I don't want to have any, that is Jess' job! I would like maybe 2 children from her womb, and as many as God gives us from someone else's

Who'll be the firm parent, and who'll be the pushover?
I will be firm and structured, Jess will be the softy!

Do you think your wife is going to yell at you during labor? 
She yells at me now, so why should anything change just because she's birthing a human being?

What are you most excited about in becoming a dad?
The constant hugs and hearing "I love you dad"

Pick one word to describe the kind of mom Jessie is going to be.
Compassionate, affectionate (because I will force her to hug our children! haha), caring, and of course "always right"

*promise to show more pictures when i get them...

I am a little scared that he thinks the baby will be 26 inches long! That might just make it in the record books!!! That is too funny!!!
