The Beast will be a Father.

I am letting my friends here at the Lair know the good news that Andi and I are expecting! Last week I was able to accompany Andi to her doctor and we were both able to hear the baby's heartbeat! Wow, talk about an amazing experience. Having the blessed opportunity to experience all this excitement with my wife has, once again, reminded me of God's great power and love. When you hear that little heart beating so fast and you begin to read and understand all the amazing little details that have to fall into place for this baby to grow and develop, it is undeniable that God is a great creator. What a leap of faith it takes to not believe in God!

We are both so excited and appreciate your prayers for us and our baby. We are currently working on names with not much success. Apparently, my suggestion of Jedediah for a boy's name just isn't going to happen. But hey, we still have some time to figure it out! Andi is doing well, she is not really fond of odors right now, either good or bad, but the excitement and joy of being parents is almost too much for us. I will keep you posted!

Jedediah sounds good to me. "Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed." I think that was also the name of Barnaby Jones' nephew or grandson or whoever it was that worked with him. So--there's a Buddy Ebsen thing going here.

Personally, I think that Michael Ruffin Meade would be destined for greatness. Unless it's a girl--then Michelle Ruffin Meade.

Congratulations!!! That's fantastic news. Of course, there's only one name for him if it's a boy:

"Son of Beast"

If they're male twins they could be Beastie Boys.

OK, I'll stop now.
