Yay! We’re Pregnant! Due March 12th

Yes, I’ve been keeping a secret from you for 2 weeks. Even had to lie a couple times :) But after a year of trying (wow, it was so difficult <-- sarcasm) God has blessed us with another child! We don't know what it is yet 'cause it's too early to tell, and I'm not sure if I want to know. We didn't find out last time and it's kinda nice. Then you don't buy the wrong color or call the baby by name during pregnancy and then find out they were wrong! If you don't know already, we already have a son, Denver, who will be 2 when the new baby is born. His website is

Also, if you didn’t know, Brooke gets very sick when she is pregnant. We’ve found out a few ways to make it better but it’s still pretty rough the whole nine months. Also, if you’re one of our iPhone website fans, you’ll notice this is why she’s been writing less lately. We’re working on a plan for this :) We’d appreciate you’re prayers as it will be very hard for her to run an at home business, take care of one child and the home, and be sick all the time. We’re also praying every day for the safety of this child, we’ve had one miscarriage before but we trust that God has a greater plan!

    Congrats on the new baby! Brooke will be in my prayers. I was glad I got to see you guys this summer at Tammy and Harold’s. Denver is sure a cutie — I loved his “smelling socks” video.

  • Hi Brooke and Doug,
    We just found out that we are due with our second child on April 12, 2009. Our daughter, Ava, will be 2 1/2 when the baby arrives. With my pregnancy I have all day sickness, I do not know why they call it morning sickness!! I hope you are feeling better.
