  1. Thanks on the congratulations – we’re excited for little Carter John to arrive in the next month or two, I’ve been waiting to be a daddy for a long time! Hopefully trying to gain a little bit of wisdom from others – like you – who have already been parents for a while now. We’ll see how it goes!
