He's here! Charlie is home! He was born Thursday morning at 9:00 and he was 7 pounds 1 ounce at 19 inches long! Sad thing was, he was sick, and they had to put in a feeding tube, followed by an IV. but he's home now, after a whole week, and he's sOo cute! I went to see him Friday, and took a few pics! I was scared to hold him though, because I was sick, and because I've never held a two day old baby before. Once he gets a little older though, I promise to always ask 'is it my turn to hold him yet?!' lol here's some pics. Since my computer is slow with uploading, I'm using HTML, and i'm new at that, so I hope these turn out!

this is my aunt holding her new grandson!

here's my sister. she has that 'i can't wait to have a baby too' look in her eyes!

Charles David Deaton

GREAT NEWS! My cousin Joey's wife, Alecia, is going to get induced today, and will more than likely go into labor between tonight and early tomorrow morning! I'm hoping to get to go see this miracle! They will be naming his Charles after my father, which is a blessing I can't even put into words, for my father was a great man. I know they will be great parents. I pray they will raise this child in God's way and will. I can't wait to see if lil' Charlie will have the hereditary 'Brooks gap' between his two front teeth, like all us Brooks's do! They had to induce labor as Alecia's blood pressure is too high, and won't go down. So please keep her in your prayers, so that she and the baby come out healthy! Wow, I can't believe I'm going to see a new born baby; I haven't done that before! I'm really excited, and I'm sure Joey can't wait to see his first son!

I am only 8 inches long
but I have all my organs.
I love the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it
I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your heart beat
is my favorite lullaby.

Month Two

today I learned how to suck my thumb.
If you could see me
you could definitely tell that I am a baby.
I'm not big enough to survive outside my home though.
It is so nice and warm in here.

Month Three

You know what Mommy
I'm a boy!!
I hope that makes you happy.
I always want you to be happy.
I don't like it when you cry.
You sound so sad.
It makes me sad too
and I cry with you even though
you can't hear me.

Month Four

my hair is starting to grow.
It is very short and fine
but I will have a lot of it.
I spend a lot of my time exercising.
I can turn my head and curl my fingers and toes
and stretch my arms and legs.
I am becoming quite good at it too.

Month Five

You went to the doctor today.
Mommy, he lied to you.
He said that I'm not a baby.
I am a baby Mommy, your baby.
I think and feel.
Mommy, what's abortion?

Month Six

I can hear that doctor again.
I don't like him.
He seems cold and heartless.
Something is intruding my home.
The doctor called it a needle.
Mommy what is it? It burns!
Please make him stop!
I can't get away from it!
Mommy! HELP me!

Month Seven

I am okay.
I am in Jesus's arms.
He is holding me.
He told me about abortion.
Why didn't you want me Mommy?

Every Abortion Is Just . . .

One more heart that was stopped.
Two more eyes that will never see.
Two more hands that will never touch.
Two more legs that will never run.
One more mouth that will never speak.

the above story means so much to me. I read it on my myspace bulletin board. Abortion is a big problem in today's society, and it needs to stop. i think the more people post this, the better. lots of people i know have already. Tomorrow I'm going to work to be trained as a hostess! please pray for me, as i'm very shy, and very nervous about having to talk to a bunch of people!
