Today, Gup turns 1 month old. WhooHoo, Yay, Par-Tay!!! Now that all of that is out of the way, let me inform you guys that the honeymoon phase is OVER! This past week or so has been a living nightmare and it can all be attributed to Ruler Gup. Yup, I say “ruler” because she rules this household with an iron fist. She says FEED ME, we say how much? She says ROCK ME, we say how fast? She says BUY ME THE NEW PS4 IN NOV, we say sure thing. Oh wait, sorry, got my “rulers” confused. That last request came from the previous monarch , who was ousted from power one month ago to this day. Even through all of her tyranny, she’s still my little princess and her beautiful eyes brighten my day; however, on nights like last night, I do find myself searching through her diaper bag, playpen, and crib, looking for a gift receipt that reads Kayla Leigh-Ann Robertson. Sure, go ahead, furrow your brow, smack your teeth, call me every name in the book; but until you’ve lived through the bewitching hour, you have no right to judge my gift receipt search!
Up until the birth of Baby Guppy aka Gup, I was under the impression that my boys were monstrosities of evil based on their dealing with each other; wait, let me clarify, I thought that Tre was a monstrosity of evil. Ty was just an unfortunate bystander, forced to protect and defend himself (usually unsuccessfully) by matching evil with evil. The levels of scheming, deceitfulness, and downright mean behavior started climbing off the charts and I began to question if we needed to move to Philadelphia in hopes of getting any brotherly love in our home. Tre reached an all-time low a few mere weeks before Gup’s birth and I was terrified that the
torture treatment of his brother would be transferred to her once she arrived.

Baby Guppy is here, she’s been here for nearly two weeks now and it has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. If you recall, she wasn’t suppose to enter this world until Feb 22nd, however, as you can tell little Miss Kayla Leigh-Ann Robertson decided that it was her time to shine and that no womb would hold her back. She was born on February 1, 2013 at 7:24PM, weighing 4lbs. 4oz. and 17in long. Since that day I have been in complete bliss and have been enjoying every moment of her precious little life.

A LOT has happened in the past few weeks, there’s been so much going on, that my computer and I nearly got a divorce due to the fact that we’ve spent next to zero minutes together recently. Let’s see, a quick rundown: My mom came to visit, Fefe’s Dad came to visit, we had Christmas, we had Tre’s birthday, New Year’s celebrations, plays, date nights, and the list goes on and on. But the most memorable moment of the past few weeks by far is the day I almost died. Could you imagine what your lives would be like had you lost your favorite Daddy blogger to a freak accident? I know, you can’t fathom the thought, so let’s move on and discuss my experience of flirting with the Grimm Reaper.

So we all know that Disney World is a magical place where memories are made; a place where dreams come true, right? Yup, that’s what they communicate and advertise on all of the brochures, commercials, and emails. But what they fail to inform you of is the fact that along with those dreams also comes nightmares, blisters, and empty bank accounts. I totally had every intention of writing this post on the plane ride back home from Disney, yet here we are a complete 2 weeks later and the post is just now going up. Clearly, I was either delusional or naive to think that I would have the strength and mental capacity to write a blog post during a plane ride after spending 6 nights, 7 days (that’s travel agent speak) at Disney World. But never in my wildest dreams (or nightmares) did I anticipate a 2 week turnaround time to get back to my normal self. I know by now you must be wondering: was it all worth it? Read on to find out.

Well it’s finally here, the moment that you’ve all been waiting for; it’s time to find out the lucky winner of our Sex Guess Giveaway. We had 28 entries that guessed Baby Guppy would be a girl and 16 entries that guessed for a boy. I want to thank all of you for entering and coming along for the ride as we played the waiting game to find out our babies gender. However, given that we aren’t having twins, only one group of you guys could be right and that group is the folks that guessed Baby Guppy was a girl!
All 28 names were assigned a random number and then 28 numbers were placed into a hat, with one winner to be drawn. The drawing was conducted last night and the winner will be revealed “live” by watching the following video.
Good Luck Guys!
P.S. Ty’s hat was not harmed during the filming of this video
P.S.S. Tre’s drum sticks were not harmed after they were forcefully removed from him

Please find below some conclusive scientific data to assist with your determination of the baby’s gender.
Test #1: The Heartbeat Test – If baby’s heartbeat is above 140bpm, then it is a girl; if it is below it is a boy
Results: Heartbeat Range 148-151
Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL
Test #2: Key To My Heart Test – If the pregnant woman picks up a key from a flat surface by the narrow end, it is a girl; if the key is retrieved by the fat end, it is a boy
Results: Narrow End
Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL
Test #3: Chinese Gender Chart – Based on conception date/due date and mother’s age, the Chinese gender chart can determine the sex of the baby
Results: See Conclusion
Conclusion: IT’S A BOY
Test #4: Ring On A String – Tie a ring to a string and hold it over Mom’s belly, if the ring swings in a circular motion, it’s a girl; however, if it swings back and forth, it’s a boy
Results: Circular Motion
Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL
Test #5: Baby In The Belly – If the woman is carrying high, it’s a girl; if she is carrying low, it’s a boy

There’s something alive in my wife’s belly, and I put it there!
WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!! WhooHoo
Now that the obligatory celebration is out of the way, I can return to being scared totally shitless. I know I know, we’ve been down this road before, we’re already raising two boys. But who says that has to stop my worrying? Have you had a child before? Do you know what those little critters are like the first few months of their lives? I’ve survived infancy once before, last time I checked, people who walk away from natural disasters aren’t in a huge rush to relive the thrill.
