Babies Having Babies

No, this isn't a treatise on morality. Rather, it concerns OUR baby, our 3rd of three kids and only daughter, Brooke. She is pregnant! The parents to-be are ecstatic. So are we. A lot of parents consider their last child to be the "baby". Brooke has been a joy to us all of her life. She's the finest Christian I know. Even though she's gorgeous (looks like Carole) and could've found a mate with no problem, she stubbornly held out until the perfect Christian was brought into her life - Michael.

So this is special. Should be born about a week before Christmas. Brooke will be blessed by the advice and experience Carole will provide. Right now, their phone calls are mainly about morning sickness - which seems to be an all-day affair with Brooke.

Please pray for her and Michael and the new child - that He will protect them from all harm and that the baby will be healthy. Given the spirituality of the parents, he/she will be a blessed baby from the beginning.

Thank you so much for sharing the news about Brooke and Michael!! Mark and I are ecstatic for them!! I'll make sure to drop them a note on her blog, but I thought I would say congratulations to you too!! Oh, by the way I showed my dad your blog and he said that you should come out to Midland to see those stars or go on a camping trip with him down to Big Bend!! Congrats again!

WOW, congrats Brooke and Michael on your pregnancy. Hang in there with the morning sickness. Zofran works real well. Also, just realized that we have something in common in that my sis is Brooke and her husband is Michael too. Michael doesn't play the drums does he?
