Sweetest First Sound

Joy of listening to first heart beatThere are many joys you experience in life, but I never knew how one little sound could bring so much joy. When I discovered my wife and I were going to have a baby, I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement. I figured from that point on it would just be a waiting game for the nine months it takes for the baby to fully develop and be born.

I was surprised by how much joy flowed over me when we heard that first heartbeat. It was like a huge wave of calm and happiness just rushed over me. It put me at ease and the only thing I focused on was hearing that heartbeat over and over again. This sound would be what we looked forward to the most with each and every visit to the doctor. As long as we could hear that sound we knew things were going the right way and we were happy!

I was originally born in Missouri, but traveled around most of my childhood. My mom finally got tired of moving while we were in Dallas, Texas and I have been here ever since. After high school I started college at the University of North Texas (UNT) and started working in the computer field. I currently work for JCPenney as a front end software engineer for their e-commerce website. Before this I worked for AT&T about 12 years and started with them in 1999 (when they were Southwestern Bell). I have many passions and I really love photography. Besides photography I also love sports. I not only like to watch it, but I also love to play. Currently my friends and I play indoor soccer and flag football.
