Jennifer, William, & Matthew — Generations of Love
Jennifer was born in Miami, Florida, yet lived in a number of areas. She moved to Knoxville, Tennessee for her father’s career and considers this to be her hometown since she was raised here. Jennifer went to Birmingham, Alabama where she attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. A short while later, she moved to Augusta, Georgia with her family. She started her career at a retina clinic as a certified ophthalmic assistant. After gaining experience in a diagnostic dye test, she accepted a position as head retinal angiographer in Wilmington, NC. She loved her job and ended up working for this clinic for 8 years before taking a position which involved research in Charlotte. She rented a house in Southpark and started working at Charlotte Eye, Ear, Nose, & Throat in the Imaging department. During this time, she joined the ever so popular eHarmony site where she met the love of her life, Tom. They were inseparable from the very beginning and were married in November 2008. For fun, this couple likes to go to the mountains, particularly Blue Ridge Parkway and Blowing Rock. They also like going to beach, which is convenient since both of their parents own beach houses. Jennifer & Tom love playing with their boys and working in the yard. Jennifer’s hobbies include shopping, cooking and play dates for her boys. Her relaxation time is spent watching the food network to get ideas for gourmet dishes.
William is 18 months old and is the fourth generation, having been named after his father, grandfather and great grandfather. He loves swimming and has been in the pool since he was 12 weeks old. It also comes to no surprise that he enjoys bath time. Will is a sweet boy who loves his class at The Little Gym. His favorite toy is his night soother ocean wonder machine (he never goes on a trip without it) and his favorite show is Yo Gabba Gabba. Matthew is 4 months old and named after his maternal grandfather. He has just begun to smile and babble.
The hardest thing about being a Tot Mom is the sleep deprivation. Jennifer can’t wait to have her nights back so she can catch up on her sleep. The best thing is that she and Tom have found the meaning of life through their boys. She says everyday is heaven on earth.
