I’ma start working out harder. – We should check to see if you can lift me up. – Ooh. – We haven’t done that in a while. – Yeah, but you’ve been pregnant for a while. Wait, why do I need to lift you up when you’re pregnant? – Just in case, I don’t know. I’m like thirty pounds heavier. So, see how much all these months of exercising have paid off. You have abs now so. (laughs) – Yeah, my abs are going to lift you up. – Yep. – I shall be going to the library to get some work done and I have a lunch date.

(upbeat music) – I love you too. – Bye. – Bye. – I’m going to turn off the camera so I can kiss you. – Okay. (upbeat music) – When I first got into the graduate program, I started a business and I had a buddy come up to me and ask me to help him start a business. And literally, we were in between classes. In that next class, I got his business up online. It was a DJ company, wedding DJ company and my buddy had never DJ-ed before. Within a month, he had the equipment. He had his gigs booked, money in the bank, all ready to go even before he started it. And so, I remember the word, I was impressed by the word immediately. I remember sitting in my living room on my pink Lazyboy chair, and the word “fruition” came to mind. Fruition is the actualization of a project or plan. The origin of the word is a french word, the word “fruit”, which comes from enjoyment. It just reminded me of the story of, you know, the Trinity and how the Trinity came together and said, “Hey, let us make man in our image.” Where the whole process of creation and the creation of man, was thought, was brought up with an idea. I really believe that same creative process that the Trinity had, God has placed within humanity. – What up? How you doing? – Tired. – You tired? Are you still tired? – I didn’t take a nap so I’m not less tired. – Why are you so tired? – ‘Cause I went grocery shopping. – Oh. – I walked around for the past two hours. – So why are you so tired? You got good exercise. You should be energized. Re-invigorated. (giggles) No? – You’re delusional. (laughs) – Tomorrow, we got to get the ultrasound. – Yes, we do. – How do you feel? – I am so, I’m so, I’m anxious. I’m excited to see our baby. What she looks like, what position she’s in. – Daddy, can I go to park? Daddy? – Excuse me? – I wanna go to park. – So, we are gonna go to the park but not today. – Aww. – You know why? – I wanna go to park. – Yeah, we’re gonna go to the park another day because look it. Look at what happened. It’s Michigan and if. – It’s Michigan. – Yeah, and because it’s Michigan, it’s still kind of cold. (notification sound) – It’s not cold. I wanna go to park. – It’s not cold, you want to go to the park? – I wanna go to park. – Oh, okay. So we gonna go to the park, okay? We’re going to wait for it to get a little warmer and then we will go to the park. We’re gonna go to the? – Park. – And we’re gonna have? – Fun. And then, I’m gonna climb up in the ladder and then I’m gonna come down in the ladder. – You’re gonna come down in the ladder? – Yeah, and come by daddy. – You’re gonna come by daddy? – And swing on the swing. – And then you’re gonna, you’re gonna swing on the swings? – And I’m gonna swing in the swings and then play with our friends. – You’re gonna play with our friends? – Yeah? – Yeah, but I don’t think any of our friends are there now. So, we’re gonna wait until our friends go because it’s gonna be nice and warm and then we gonna go to the…? – Park! – Oh yeah!

Do you believe me? ‘Cause I don’t believe me. – Good news, the baby’s head down. Head’s down! Here’s the heart beating. It’s getting harder to see things ’cause everything is smushed in there, but that’s kind of the natural progression of things. I’ll check the blood flow of the umbilical cord here.
