Here are a few fun facts about this little  beauty…

Do you have a funny story or something that happened in her first year that you’d like to share?
2nd kid syndrome for sure!  Poor Cora has hand me downs galore and didn’t get quite the extravagant 1st birthday party that her older sister did.  So we tried to make up for it with having 3 seperate little parties with each of our families.  She got to have 3 smash cakes!

What age/month has been your favorite and why?
My favorite months are those after 9 months!  By then her personality really starts to come out.  She babbles and walks and becomes her own person….but still needs those oh so beautiful baby snuggles.  With Cora being our last, I will miss those most!

One word to describe your baby is…
Hungry!  Hahahahhaa, girl is petite for her age.  She is still wearing 6-9 month pants and 9-12 months shirts at 1 year birthday.  She hung in the 2nd percentile for height and weight (until right at the end she hit 22%), but she can put more food in her belly than all of us!  She loves all food too.  Thankfully she isn’t picky either.  Maybe one day she will win a hotdog or pizza eating contest!

What is your child’s favorites…
Animal: doesn’t have one :-/
Food: all food, every food!  Not remotely interested in baby food.  She has been eating the same meals as us since 6 months old!
Toy: any toy that makes noises, but her blankey follows her wherever she goes
Song or Book: “I gave my love a cherry” is her fav song.  My mom sang it to me when I was littler and it’s the only song that calms her down.

How was your experience with Crystal Jo?
We can’t sing enough praises about Crystal!  It is bitter sweet knowing this is our last session of the bump package.  She is so amazing with the babies….engaging them and bringing out their personalities all while keeping her upbeat attitude.  Even when meltdowns and chaos ensues… She captures the most magical moments and we have such amazing memories.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Here are a few fun facts about this little guy….

What is your favorite memory during your child’s first year of life?
Taking the kids to Bulgaria to meet family they have never met before. To have our entire family together for the first time ever was priceless.

Do you have a funny story or something that happened in her first year that you’d like to share?
Miles was such a difficult baby the first 3 months of his life! He would not sleep and cried all of the time. Many times we seriously questioned having a second child but we pushed through it. We did eventually find out he had a cows milk allergy and was actually sick! That was a game changer for us. He became a completely different baby after that.

What age/month has been your favorite and why?
The 1 year mark has been the best so far with Miles. Walking, communicating, playing. He is our little guy who fits in perfectly with our family!

One word to describe your baby is…smile. We actually say around our house ‘Miles of Smiles!’

What is your child’s favorites…
Animal: Dog
Food: Any fruit!
Toy: VTech Alphabet Train

How was your experience with Crystal Jo?
Crystal Jo is so amazing! She is perfect for our family. Patient, kind, interactive and creative. She makes the experience fun for all of us!

Here are a few fun facts about this mommy-to-be…

Tell us something fun or unique about your relationship.
We don’t feel like we are fun or unique. We are regular people living the dream:)we are busy (and only getting busier) but we know we will both be together at the end of the day. We know are lives will be changing soon, but we are in this together and will enjoy the moments life brings us.

How did you find out you were expecting?
We found out we were expecting twins the first dr appt I made. I was 8 weeks and the dr said there were 2. I said “two what” we were in shock for many many weeks after the news.

What’s your favorite thing about being pregnant? Least favorite?
My least favorite thing about being pregnant is I can’t eat whatever I want and my feet are swollen after working.  My most favorite is knowing every week we are closer and closer to meeting them.

Did you find out your baby’s gender?
We found out one babies gender through a blood test. The other a few weeks later during an ultrasound. It’s a boy…. and a girl!!!

Is there a nursery or shower theme you’d like to share?
Our showers were Two Peas in a Pod and an elephant theme. The babies room is pink and blue elephants.

A baby is coming! What are you looking forward to the most?
We are looking forward to bringing them home and getting to know them. We know we will be changing many diapers for awhile but look forward to watching them grow up.

How did you find Crystal Jo?
Crystal Jo was our wedding photographer in June of 2016. We knew she had to capture our babies just like she did our Wedding Day. We love working with her and seeing her talents through photography.
