Erin and Steve started dating on May 8, 1999. They met in parenting class in high school. Steve asked Erin to their high school prom, which she said yes to, and the rest is history.
After dating for what felt like forever and doing the long distance thing while Erin went to college, they were engaged and married in 2005.
After discussing kids for a few years (in between Erin building a business and Steve building a career) and after trying for three + years to get pregnant, they finally found out they were pregnant in April of 2010.
