So, one of my brothers is expecting a baby. (Actually, two are, but I'm just talking about the one.)

And, last week he went with my sister-in-law to have one of those 4-D ultra-sound thingies done. While there, they were told that it appeared that the baby had a really huge head (Knechts, you understand this), and the doctor was concerned about it. So, they scheduled a follow up ultra-sound to make sure it's not large because of fluid.

Needless to say, this whole week my family has been praying for lil' Joe (or, as we've been calling him "lil' big Joe), and hoping that everything would be all right.

The ultra-sound was today, and I received this text message from my brother

Baby is fine just gots a big head thanks for your prayers

Straight and to the point.

I love brothers.

LOL! My male texter friends send me some of the funniest things of my day, because black and white and no flowers is hilarious when done right.

I'm so glad everything is okay.
So, Joe is having a baby???? Craziness. Didn't he just get back from his mission?
What was it that he ran screaming through the house on the Sunday when he came home? I can't remember.
'Church is everything' or something. It was a funny moment. Too bad I can't remember anything.

Nothing wrong with big heads. Stacy said that if her doctor had said something about a big head, she would have said, "Don't worry about it. My father in law is the king of big heads." ha, ha

Glad he's o.k. I remember with my kids it looked like they had an Al Cappone nose--but when they are born, it was fine. However, I just had the lame pictures. I did see a couple the other day with 3-d pictures and it looked crazy. Yeah, you could tell what the baby looked like, but let's just say, it looked REALLY CRAMPED in there--the face was SMUUSHED up against the "glass."

So I found this blog whilst trying to find a scripture for a religion assignment for school. (Google pulled up one of your posts about religion).

Anyways, I think I might just actually read your blog from now on, it's a good read.


P.S: If you want to visit my blog for no real apparent reason: Although admittably I have neglected to post for awhile now...

Hey, thanks for leaving a comment DJ Erk! I'll definitely check out your blog.

(And Google pulled up one of my posts about religion? I feel so theological now. Cool!)
