Meeting Baby Brooks for the First Time

Filed under: Family — Brian Lutz @ 1:01 pm

The main purpose for my trip down to Provo this weekend was to meet my new nephew for the first time.  As you probably know, Brooks Junior was born a little more than three weeks ago, and although the rest of the family is planning to come down in a couple of weeks for BYU graduation and Brooks Junior’s blessing, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to come for that, so I decided to come down this weekend instead.  Baby Brooks (as he’s being called right now, although I suspect that might not go over so well in a few years) is cute, although he was a little bit fussy when I was there last night.  This was taken shortly after I arrived (the rest of the drive down was a bit rainy but otherwise uneventful,) and he was asleep, so he hadn’t quite had a chance to meet his Mean Uncle Brian just yet.  To be honest, I don’t think he’s quite met me while he’s awake yet…

Eventually he decided to wake up, and  proceeded to provide a demonstration of his apparently healthy lung capacity.  This picture shows Heather and Baby Brooks doing their best impersonation of those theater masks.

It was a little bit tricky getting any pictures of Baby Brooks in any state besides sleeping or screaming, but I think I managed to catch him somewhere in between on this one.  It’s too bad the picture didn’t turn out better…

Anyway, there will be some more stuff from Provo later on, I’ll be here for a couple more days before heading back home.



  1. I’m sure you are loving the rain here in Provo. I’m not.

    • Well, rain is rain wherever it shows up. As long as it gets rid of some of the bugs accumulated on the windshield after the drive down, I don’t mind it, but even being from the Seattle area you eventually get sick of the stuff.
