+1 for Dave’s comments, but I will give just one bit of advice. Communicate very regularly TO your child with plenty of eye contact and not just over its head in a side conversation with your wife. Learning to make eye contact could be labelled a social skill which is almost as important as learning to walk.

Very few people are natural parents so do not feel at all inadequate when asking for help or advice from parents and close friends. Unfortunately Covid restrictions and geography could still rob you of some of the close support you would otherwise get from your parents etc, so do at least make sure that they are tech savvy enough to use Apple Talk, Zoom, Skype or whatever in plenty of time before the big event,

With those comments I’ll now shut up and just wish you and your wife all the very best.
