Here are a few fun facts about this wild one…

What is your favorite memory during your child’s first year of life?

Lindsey: The first time he pulled himself up in his pack ‘n play. You could see the triumph in his face and the joy in his laughter.

Jim: When he started crawling to me with excitement when I got home from work.

Do you have a funny story or something that happened in her first year that you’d like to share?

Our adventure at boo at the zoo when Gabe was dressed as a skunk (our little stinker). While visiting the polar bears, the momma bear got up from her nap to check out our little skunk! He must have looked tasty.

What age/month has been your favorite and why?

Lindsey: every stage has had its special parts. It was so exciting to see him sit, then crawl, and now cruise around everything! I miss when he was content to sit! A sitting baby is a great baby!

Jim: About 7 months when he started to crawl! He’s a pro army crawler.

One word to describe your baby is…

Lindsey: determined

Jim: mouthy

What is your child’s favorites…
Animal: doggies
Food: zucchini
Toy: Chuck the dump truck
Song or Book: Good Night Train

How was your experience with Crystal Jo?
Excellent! She is always east to work with and is always so patient with all of us😉

Here are a few fun facts about this amazing family…

Tell us a little about your family dynamic.  How you met your husband, how long you’ve been married, names and ages
of the children.
Ash and I met by random chance while we worked for the same company.  I was at the Columbus location for a few days and I saw Ashley on day 1 and said to my co-worker “I have to meet that girl”.  It took until my last day there to actually get to talk to her and the rest is history.  We’ve been together ever since, and married the past 4 and a half years.  We now have two amazing, 8 month old, twin baby boys – Maxwell and Jaxon who we were blessed with on February 21st, 2017.  I can’t leave out the other “kids” Bruschi, our 8 year old Goldendoodle, Bella, our 2 year old mini-Goldendoodle, and our most recent member, Pedro, our 6-month old kitten.

Do you have any hidden talents or something unique to you?
Ashley will tell you her hidden talent is singing, but the rest of the family would politely disagree with that assessment:)

If you could be any person for one day, who would it be?
I (Jeff) would like to be a professional athlete for a day.  Having grown up playing sports and still being a huge sports fan I’d like to see what it’s like to play at the level.  I’m a homer for my home teams so I’d have to pick someone like Tom Brady or Dustin Pedroia.  Not going to lie, having that much cash floating around for a day wouldn’t be terrible either!
I (Ashley) would like to be Ellen DeGeneres for a day because I love making people happy and giving back!  I’m also not going to lie, you can make many more miracles happen with her bank account! hahaha

What’s one thing you want to learn to do?
(Jeff) I’ve always wanted to learn how to surf.  I’ve tried it a few times but I’d like to really learn how to do it well, rather than just stand up straight (if possible) and then fall over within 10 seconds.  I think watching the pro’s do it on giant waves is so cool because of the power of the ocean.
(Ashley) I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the drums.  I love music and I can’t sing or play a single instrument and since singing is out of the question, drums it is!

If you had a $100 bill in your back pocket to spend on whatever you’d like, you’d buy…
(Jeff) I’d probably like to buy a single ticket to a Red Sox game at Fenway to take the family there for Max and Jax’s first baseball game.  By my calculations, I’d have to find about 4 other $100 bills just for tickets though!!
(Ashley) I’d buy stuff for my boys!

Describe the perfect weekend.
The perfect weekend for us is really anything that’s relaxing and just spending time.  That can be camping, going to the beach or the pool, or just lounging around the house.

Are you more like your mom or your dad?  (parents even answer this one!)
I (Jeff) am a lot like my dad.
I (Ashley) am a lot like my mom.

What did your family like best about your experience with Crystal Jo?
The interaction between Crystal Jo with us and the kids made everything very easy.  She had great ideas on what she thought was best and that made it so much less stressful for us.  She also has an amazing way of interacting with the kids to get them to do what they want – a skill set both mom and dad haven’t mastered

Here are a few fun facts about this awesome family…

Tell us a little about your family dynamic.  How you met your husband, how long you’ve been married, names and ages
of children

With two little boys and full time careers outside of the home, life is busy but we do our best to make it work! Graham is 6 and in Kindergarten which has brought a new routine to our house. Reid is 3.5 and is our wild man! We never have to wonder how he feels about things as he is very good at expressing himself!   

We met through a couple that we each knew individually so it was kind of a setup. The first few times we hung out we were in bars or with large groups of people so after a couple of weeks we decided we should probably go on an actual date to see if we liked each other…it seems to have worked out pretty well! 11 years later, 8 married, through job changes, 2 house moves and 2 kids, we’ve made a lot of memories together and know there are so many more to come!

Do you have any hidden talents or something unique to you?
Graham: “I’m really good at monkey bars”
Reid : “monster trucks”
Dad: “touching my nose with my tongue and talking like Chewbacca”
Mom: “remembering song lyrics”

If you could be any person for one day, who would it be?
Graham: “Remi (grandparents’ dog) because she is funny.”
Reid: “a storm trooper”
Dad: “an astronaut”
Mom: “My Grandma when she was in her teens or early twenties. She will be 99 in a few weeks and it would be really cool to experience life in the late ’30s or early ’40s.”

What’s one thing you want to learn to do?
Graham: “be a police officer”
Reid: “drive a motorcycle”
Dad: “play golf well”
Mom: “crochet or sew”

If you had a $100 bill in your back pocket to spend on whatever you’d like, you’d buy…
Graham: “nerf guns”
Reid: “a four wheeler”
Dad: “a nice dinner out”
Mom: “a really good bottle of wine!”

Describe the perfect weekend.
Graham: “going to the movie theatre and to Toys R Us”
Reid: “going to the Buckeyes game and the taco store (El Vaquero)”
Dad: “Friday night Date Night, family activities on Saturday, and no chores on Sunday”
Mom: “Pizza with Derek and the kids at home on Friday, outside fun with the family on Saturday followed by a Date Night on Saturday and then sleeping in and having a movie day on Sunday. Oh, and no work on Monday!”

Are you more like your mom or your dad?  (parents even answer this one!)
Graham: “Daddy because we have the same color hair”
Reid: “Mommy because I am”
Dad: “Dad”
Mom: “Mom for sure”

What did your family like best about your experience with Crystal Jo?
We loved how easy Crystal was to work with and how amazing she is with kids! We all felt at ease right away which I’m sure will result in some great photos!!
