We met as teenagers in 2001 as new next door neighbors. We had an instant connection that I wouldn't call love at first sight. We were just BEST friends. We dated off and on for 4 years before we made it official in 2005. Here we are going on 9 years later and we still have that spark that grew from our amazing friendship. Besides being the proud parents of our 3 gorgeous children, there are a lot of things we enjoy. We are big movie fans and we both love a night out with our friends for dinner and drinks. We're both big sports nuts and we like to have family board game nights and beat each other in Texas hold em. We're definitely not perfect, we're just a young couple with many small children, learning new things every day and loving every minute of it!
Our wonderful first born came into this world September 23rd, 2006. He is a big ball of energy. At 3 years old, he loves playing sports, digging in dirt, trains and cars. Under that tough boy image, he has a very sensitive and sometimes shy side. He is a definite momma's boy. He's very independent, too smart for his own good, and there is no question in my mind that he is an absolute leader. He's an awesome big brother and loves to help care for his siblings. Recently obsessed with Toy Story, he now demands you call him Buzz Lightyear. He's a bit of a jokster and makes us laugh until we cry quite often. We couldn't have asked for a better first child!
Our only baby girl was born August 18th, 2007. Yes, that would make her only 10 months younger than her big brother. Our little miss is undoubtebly the princess in the family and we wouldn't have it any other way. She loves her baby dolls and following her bubba around. She's talkative, yet very soft spoken. At 2 years of age, she makes a wonderful big sister and absolutely adores her "baby brudder." She gives the best kisses and cuddles. She is very much a daddy's girl, and as much as her daddy won't admit it, he's a sucker for our sweet girl's big blue eyes and bouncy blonde curls. Spoiled rotten and always gets her way, Miss Kae is known in our family as "sissy."
The youngest of our 3 (in under 3 years) was born August 30th, 2009. He is a very happy bubbly baby boy. He enjoys jumping in his jumperoo and his favorite thing to do is eat! He loves his blanket, his binky, his crib mobile and going bye-bye. Of our children, he has been the best sleeper and has slept through the night almost since day one. When he's not eating or sleeping you can catch him drooling, chewing on his hands, giggling at his big brother, or in the arms of his adoring big sissy. He is a momma's boy and the spitting image of his daddy. At 6 months old, he is the perfect addition to our blue-eyed blonde-haired crew!
