What is your favorite family tradition?

Our little guy is only 2 months old so have not gotten to start many of our own family traditions yet. However Christmas brings many family traditions that I can't wait to start with our little one including advent calendars, new pjs on Christmas Eve and always attending a candlelight service as a family.

Tell us about your favorite family story.

So far my favorite family story is the day our son was born. We struggled with infertility for 3 1/2 years and went through IVF to have our little boy. The wait was well worth it when we got to hold him for the first time.

What is your family's motto?

Choose Joy

There is nothing more special then holding your baby for the first time.

Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!)

A friend came over who only has little girls and offered to change our little guys diaper. The next thing I knew he had peed all over her, the changing table and even the floor. Needless to say little boys sure know how to aim :)
