Who We Are
Our story began in 1991 when Lauren was 12 and Fred was 15. We met because our childhood best friends were brother and sister. Over time, we became childhood buddies. Of course, we teased each other mercilessly! During our awkward teen years something magical happened - we developed a crush on each other! We began dating when we were 16 and 19, so it's safe to say we are childhood sweethearts. As time passed it was clear to us that we were meant to be each other's forever. We were married in 2001 and have been best friends ever since.
On June 17,2016 something magical happened! That was the day that our Benji was born. From the moment we laid eyes on him we knew that our lives had truly just begun. It is impossible to prepare for or even imagine the infinite amount of love we felt when he held him in our arms for the first time!
Since that day, every day is a new adventure with Benji. Family time is our #1 priority and is spent playing, going to community events, or just hanging out! We are lucky to have fun parks near the house. We cannot wait to add another member to the family! Benji will make a great older brother.
We are so very fortunate to have family in town who are very much involved in our lives. Benji gets to see his grandparents and even great-grandparents all the time!!! Our friends are also a huge part of our lives. Benji is lucky to have a bunch of “aunties” and “uncles” to love him. They are all excited to have another child to share their love with as well.
We are so lucky to have Miss Dorca in our lives. Miss Dorca is Benji’s nanny who watches him during the weekdays when mommy and daddy are at work. She loves Benji so very much. Benji is learning to speak Spanish with her!! How cool!
