Thought I'd share the good news with my drum friends! My wife and I will be adding a new little drummer to the family in April!

I'm extremely nervous but excited about it. We didn't think we were going to be able to have children, so this one is definitely a blessing from God. Gonna be an interesting new time for us!

Wife wanted a drum related announcement, so we went with a replica baby jersey of the first one she surprised me with!

Congratulations! We were in a similar situation 18 years ago and were blessed with a "miracle baby." I hope you can find a way to get that Ludwig Classic Maple kit you've been eyeing before the baby comes along. It becomes much harder to rationalize once diapers become a weekly expense.

Being a dad can be the greatest gig ever...
just remember that your wife is eating for two...you don't have to....(one thing I learned during the first pregnancy).

Congratulations! Cherish every moment you have with the new person, soon to be in your life. Time flies by fast with them. My two boys recently left home, and I miss them every day.

Congratulations! So far I've found it to be the most tiring yet most rewarding thing I've ever done. Nap when they nap but don't count on too much sleep for the first month or two. You eventually get a routine down with them, then once you're used to that, they change it up on you.

Congratulations my friend, toughest job you’ll have but you’ll never love more. Forget about sleeping for a while.
