My wife always wanted a Jr, so he’ll be John Jr!Congratulations. That you are over-joyed with the experience is awesome.
A few of the comments implying that one can mold your children with 100% excellent outcome concern me though. There are no guarantees with children and I am preaching to the choir for those with adult children.. Physical health issues, mental health issues, and just about everything else results in no guarantees. We all have experienced it. Sometimes the children thought to have been raised with the highest standards still go sideways. Others that were troublesome in youth go on to become very successful. I'm in favor of carefully letting them make some mistakes (not overly excessive on the reins) and develop responsibility, but to each their own. Often you don't have a choice in this. We were blessed that my wife could stay at home most of the time.
Best wishes to you, your wife, and your upcoming family. Have you thought of names yet?
