Halfway through my senior year, my boyfriend and I found out we were expecting a bundle of joy in just 8 months. We were 17 and both didn’t really think we wanted children, but we knew we were meant to have a family once we saw the positive test. Through the following months, as my belly grew and my energy drained, we worked hard to finish school on a positive note. At 20 weeks pregnant we walked down the stage at graduation and moved in together that night. A month after our 18th birthdays, (we’re both Leos), we married at my grandparents home while I was 9 months pregnant and wearing a white maternity dress, married by a bishop we never met before and only surrounded by immediate family.
On October 8th, 2016, our sweet, perfect little Aiden was born after a rough 20 hours in active labor and nearly 3 hours of pushing. He’s been the light of our life, and we are so happy to have such a beautiful and messy story. Follow our journey of teen parenthood, and of parenting in general. ♡
