Thanksgiving selfie, 2018

The day our kids no longer think family costumes are fun will be a sad one for us!

Thanksgiving, 2019

When Greta is in charge, we wear animal hats

My best friend would describe me as......

Loyal (friends since age 15), adventurous (together we backpacked through Europe, SE Asia and India), maybe a little dorky (bonded over late nights of studying), funny (glad she appreciates my humor)

Rebecca

Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

We have two daughters - Eleanor, age five and Greta, age one . Eleanor has been an amazing big sister and frequently mentions additional siblings she hopes to get in the future.

Rebecca

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

We’re close to the beach, parks, playgrounds, a zoo, every type of food imaginable and a year- round farmer’s market. Seattle has great schools and is extremely kid-friendly!

Rebecca

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

A sailboat for the water views!

Rebecca

The most special thing I own is...

At the moment I’m really enjoying watching Eleanor play with the doll house my dad built for me as a child.

Rebecca

I hope you are...

Taking care of yourself, both mentally and physically (pregnancy is HARD!) and finding the support you need to make this monumental decision.

Rebecca

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

When our older daughter Eleanor first discovered the moon - I love seeing the world through the eyes of our children!

Rebecca

My favorite place in the World is...

I love to travel so it's hard to choose just one. Some of my favorites include: Jackson Hole, Palau, Japan, Hawaii

Jay

We are the best choice because…

We truly love being parents and this crazy phase of life. We prioritize our kids 100% and can’t wait to complete our family with a third little one to love.

Rebecca

What scares you?

Kids growing up too fast!

Jay

Dogs or cats?

Admittedly, neither. But maybe willing to consider a dog one day if the rest of our family nags at me enough.

Rebecca

Dogs or cats?

Definitely dogs!

Jay

What scares you?

Speed when doing active things - the older I get the more I worry about injuries. Trying to work on the fear though since our five year old already beats me down the mountain when we ski!

Rebecca

When you argue, what’s it about?

Silly things like when Jay drapes his laundry over the hamper instead of actually placing it inside or when I leave drawers open in the bathroom and block Jay from accessing his.

Rebecca

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

Asian food and my Peloton bike!
