The Brook Family
DW: Juno Louisa
DH: Rowan Dominic
Married March 31, 2014 both 22 years old
Year 1: The Brooks decide to wait a year after their marriage before starting a family. Still, they are pleasantly surprised when Juno becomes unexpectedly pregnant. They have a baby boy and name him Everett Hiram.
Year 2: The Brooks take a vacation with the extended family to their beach property in North Carolina. They spend the month with aunts, uncles, and cousins, and many get to meet Everett for the first time. Everett enjoys his first beach trip, though he never quite got used to the sand.
Year 3: Juno and Rowan do not actively try to get pregnant this year, but they still welcome twin daughters: Matilda Zoe & Beatrice Maisie.
Year 4: The Brooks family adopts a stray calico kitten. They name her Zelda.
Year 5: Everett takes to Zelda so well that the family decides to adopt a dog. They get a retired sled dog named Odin.
Year 6: Juno and Rowan decide to try for another baby. They have a little boy named Tobias Liam.
Year 7: A close friend of the family has a baby and doesn’t feel ready to raise it. Juno and Rowan decide to adopt the baby girl. They name her Eliza Hazel in honor of the mother.
Year 8: Once again Juno and Rowan become unexpectedly pregnant. They have another boy and name him Sebastian Milo.
Year 9: The Brooks family moves to a bigger house. They move to some farmland in Wyoming where they operate a ranch. They buy three new horses, one for each of the children old enough to ride: A male Appaloosa named Cosmo for Beatrice and two female American Quarter Horses, a chestnut horse named Honey for Matilda and a black horse named Sadie for Everett.
Year 10: Juno remodels the kids’ rooms. Everett has his own room designed in a safari theme. Rowan painted animals on all of the walls and the bed is designed to look like a safari Jeep. Beatrice and Matilda share a room. One wall is painted spring green (for Beatrice), one wall is painted lilac (for Matilda), one wall is antique white, and the last wall is completely covered by a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf. Tobias and Sebastian share a room decorated in a sailing theme. The walls are painted with the ocean and horizon, it has blue carpet, and the beds are designed to be ships. Eliza’s room is decorated in a 100 Acre Wood theme, complete with stuffed animals and a tree house bed.
Year 11: Juno sends Tobias and Everett to water the horses while she unloads hay from the tractor. Everett convinces Tobias to get on Cosmo, but Tobias is too small. He falls trying to mount the horse and he breaks his arm. Everett feels guilty and becomes Tobias’ special helper while he has a cast.
Year 12: Juno becomes pregnant with a little girl. They name her Tabitha Gwyneth.
Year 13: The Brooks family welcomes twin boys: Frederick Oskar & Oliver Ezra.
Year 14: The six oldest Brooks children join a local production of The Lion King. Everett earns the role of young Simba. Matilda plays a young lion in Simba’s pride, Beatrice is a hyena, Tobias and Eliza are both zebras, and Sebastian is a gazelle.
Year 15: The children start a band they call “The Farm Hands.” Everett plays keyboard, Beatrice plays bass, Tobias plays lead guitar, Matilda plays flute, Sebastian plays trumpet, Eliza plays fiddle, and little Tabitha plays tambourine.
Year 16: Juno and Rowan decide it’s time to adopt again. They send the children on a vacation with Juno’s parents and sister to Disney World while they go to China to pick up their new baby daughter. They name her Eloise Li Na.
Year 17: Juno and Rowan want to try for one last planned pregnancy. Juno has a baby boy who they name Zachary Aldous.
Year 18: The Brooks family adopts another dog: a female Pembroke Welsh Corgi they name Fia.
Year 19: Time to redo the kids’ rooms. Everett moves to the basement where there’s a small apartment, complete with kitchen. Matilda takes Everett’s old room and redecorates it with floral wallpaper and white linens and furniture. Beatrice keeps her room mostly the same, she just updates the furniture and adds some of her photos she’s taken. Tobias and Sebastian still share their room, only now it’s mostly sports oriented. The carpet has been replaced with hardwood floors, and the walls have been painted steely gray. Eliza and Tabitha share a bedroom, and it’s decorated with a horse theme. Frederick and Oliver share a room decorated in a railroad theme, Eloise takes over Eliza’s old room, and Zachary stays with Juno and Rowan most nights and Frederick and Oliver other nights.
Year 20: The Brooks family gets another kitten, a gray cat they name Diego.
