Remember back in September when I said my “chase” may be going on hiatus for a little bit because I was expecting a baby? Well, like any man of integrity, I wasn’t lying. On Tuesday, November 15, 2011, my wife and I welcomed our boy John into the world.
Everyone is doing great right now, and I’m just beside myself with joy. We brought him home from the hospital Thursday night, so naturally updating Chasing Amazing is not on the top of my to-do list. Once I get back into the swing of things, I would like to continue the “stand-up and cheer” series, as I really like how Tuesday morning’s post worked out and have some fun Spidey moments to capture. I also need to finish up some posts on the remaining Amazing Spider-Man Spider Island tie-ins, though I’d like to send a special shout-out to Marvel for making that a little more difficult by sending me issue #671 and then earlier this week #673, skipping over #672 completely. So while I wait for their subscription services department to get their act together, you’ll have to wait as well, though I might jump a head if the wait is excruciatingly long and do a little write-up on the new Avenging Spider-Man series, which I thought was great fun, and an awesome throwback to Marvel Team-Up.
But in the meantime, I’m going to contend with some irregular sleeping hours and trying to learn how to take care of a little human life. My wife already is a pro, but I still have some learning to do (I sorta, kinda changed my first diaper last night). Someone had asked me recently on Twitter if I was planning on reading any comic books to him, and while I’m sure that’s in the cards, I thought I’d also show you what I picked up for him in the hospital gift shop before leaving on Thursday. Yes, I’m nothing but persistent.
