Congrats. Now comes the hard part. Anyone can be a father, but it's a ton of work to be a "dad". You'll find this the hardest and most rewarding experience of your life.

Best of luck.

Absolutely!

I'm firmly of the opinion that the word "apparent" doesn't have its roots in Latin, Old English, or French, but is instead based on what you come to learn as truth(s) once you're "A PARENT"....
