From one middle child to another

Growing up a middle child, I didn`t really feel the middle child syndrome because our little brother was so much younger than us.  My middle son, I am sure, would tell you a different story!! He was 4 years younger than his brother and then, the princess was born 8 years later. So, he got a taste of what it was like!!

When I was three months pregnant with him, I had severe gall bladder issues. I was in the hospital for two weeks, terrified that they would do something to hurt the pregnancy. Finally it was decided to operate to remove my gall bladder, telling me it was not uncommon to do in my situation. I had the surgery and a pretty uneventful pregnancy after that. Then, June 14, 1981, Christopher Brent Lazenby was born. Surprise to us, he had a head full of red hair!!

He was an answer to prayer, all healthy and perfect!

His hair, is an indication that he was a very busy boy growing up!

We survived the teen years, then off to college.
