BIG NEWS ABOUT A LITTLE PROJECT...


Welp, For approximately the last four months I've been on the go, on the road, playing my guitar, singing  songs, creating goofy girls with glasses videos, fixin' a house, recording records and oh yeah... keeping a big secret  about another massive "little project" I've been hard at work on... 

But it looks as though my belly is blowing my cover... 

Yep, I'm havin' a BABY y'all! WOW, how weird does it feel to say that?! Super Weird and yet super awesome! I've always said I wanted to be an "M&M" a musician and a momma, and it looks like that is all coming to fruition in my twenty eighth... almost twenty ninth year of life (by the time she arrives), and I have to say while it came as a happy surprise, and at the same time, later then I ever expected, I'm feeling great  about having a baby at this point in my life! 

This little gal is already keepin' up with the crazy, in my Ultrasound we could see that we have a serious Rock n' Roll baby on our hands... by the looks of it, she's partyin' it up in there! My doctor said, "wow she doesn't sit still! " and Dave Ray quickly spouted "just like her mom!". HA! 

my rock and roll baby at 12 wks, she's grown a lot since then
Truth is, I already worry about her every day, I just want her to be happy and healthy... She is probably already tired of hearing me say "are you okay?!" which apparently she can hear and feel the sound and vibration of my loud voice at this stage. Poor thing gets to listen to me babble and sing all day and night! She is also the size of my open hand and though her closed eyelids see light.  She is also gettin' fatter and taller... cute huh? 

Honestly, we can hardly wait to meet her, see her, freak out over her and just hang out with her and take her to Target and band practice, cause she is gonna be such a cool baby. Until May 31st I will just have to patiently prepare for her arrival. That is, if she arrives on time... and if she is anything like her mom, she'll be late. Actually I was supposed to be born on May 21st, and wouldn't ya know I decided to show up two weeks later on June 2nd. For all I know she could be born on my birthday just two days after... and I'd be a June baby giving birth to a June baby! Perfect Present...

Now, my rock n' roll babe and I must get back to recording a sweet new J+W EP due in January...

PS- This was a really hard secret to keep.

PSS- Thanks to my fellow girl with glasses and dear friend Summer Bellessa for making me this fun lil' video!!

  37. I'm so excited for you! It's funny because a couple days before you announced this I saw Katie and asked about this and she just made this face and said she couldn't say so I'm glad the secret is out! I'm sure you will be just as cute as Katie was when she was pregnant! Congrats!!!

  38. I don't know how I missed this news. But yesterdays Tweet about another little human had me curious. So I moseyed over here to find out if what I suspected was true. I am so happy for you Brooke...Now your Sunshine will spill over into another little life...Should name her Sunshine, after all, her Mom exudes it from every pore..So you know she will come out with rays beaming out all over...:)

  39. Brooke! Congratulations! That is so Cool! Ever since you were on American Idol I thought you were the coolest person ever (and this is coming from a Jr. High girl) and I still do... Even more so after you did that benefit concert here in North Ogden for that girl that had terminal cancer. You are such a sweet heart... I think you should name your baby Wendy, Jane, Piper, Janelle, Rosie, or Ellie... Wow... Brooke White is having a baby and David Archuleta is going on a mission, American Idol season 7 contestants have never been so exciting.

  40. Congratulations Brooke! What an exciting time for you and your husband! Just so you know ~ I've been a BIG fan since your time on American Idol and honestly, you and I are like soul sisters. I too was due May 21 (the same year as you) but I lasted 2 more days than you, born June 4 that year! :)
    Congrats again!

  41. I am not the type of person to comment on a blog but I couldn't resist. As I was reading this last night I couldn't believe it...the things we have in common are crazy! I am 28 years old, pregnant with my first child, due on May 29th, was told early on (13 weeks) that it was a girl but have not had confirmation yet, the ultrasound technician also commented on how much the baby was moving (said it was like she was performing a choreographed dance), there is a chance I will have her on my 29th birthday (may 13th), I felt my baby really kick me for the first time on Monday evening 5 kicks!, I have been with my partner for over 10 years, I have been incredibly lucky in that my only pregnancy symptom has been fatigue! Before I read this article people used to tell me that you reminded them of me (or vice versa). Not that I am a musical person but we have the same crazy curls and similarities in our personality. Good luck to you in your pregnancy...I find out for sure on the 17th! Can't wait!
