Well boys, looks like I have a preorder coming that I did not expect, nor ask for! This one's a bit out of the ordinary from your standard makeups we usually see 'round these parts...

According to the experts, it'll be appearing sometime in late September unless things don't go as planned with the factory! ;)

This is the very first for Mrs. Savvy & I; I always joked it would go like this (unexpected, out of the blue), and it seems I was right!

Still in shock, and I'm honestly super nervous, but excited for the future. We haven't told our families yet as we're planning to tell them in person in the coming weeks, so I had to spill my beans to somebody.

Cheers, and I'll drink Mrs. Savvy's along with mine! :cheers:

No need to be "Super" Nervous, perhaps nervous yes, but Super, no. Kids do change things, in a huge way, but all for the good. Get your footwear now :)

Congrats! Now it all begins. As a father of 6 sons, I know the excitement of a new baby in the family.

Congratulations, my friend! What a blessing!

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them..." (Ps. 127:3-5).

Is it the Grant Stone Ostrich boots by chance?

Congrats! As a recent father of an almost 4 month old, I can say, it is a lot of fun. The first two weeks are the hardest. As others have said, get your shoes now.

Chili University shoes, another pair Charleston helped me secure.

I'd echo the others @savvysartorial. Congrats in order. I personally suggest sending memes to your wife about how great the boys can swim. That's what I did for my 1st. I was very proud. My wife was less enthusiastic about the memes but she continues to tolerate me for reasons that aren't immediately apparent.

As far as real advice, I highly recommend a baby nurse for a short time if you can swing it. Expensive and a bit dicey in covid times but worth considering having gone without / with for my 2 children.

Perhaps your wife was more enthusiastic about all the photos of Olympic swimmers with their shirts off than she let on ... :)
