About Me

Plano, TX
Our first child, Caroline, was born June 5th, 2009. She has completely rocked our world. Patty stays home to take care of Caroline full time. Reagan is a computer programmer at PFS Web. We met Jan 9th 2004. Patty's best-friend from high school, Dixie, slyly matched us up. In July of 2004 we moved to Allen, TX for work. We married Oct 29th, 2005 and moved into our current house in Plano the following April. We also have two furry children named Annabell and Oliver. We love to travel. Throughout our marriage we have taken some incredible trips. We haven't gone anywhere with Caroline (other than Tulsa) yet but we're planning a family trip this summer.

Never Wake a Sleeping Baby

Caroline has been a night owl like her Daddy since birth. We have fought with her to get her to sleep by 9 or 9:30 pm. Last week I ordered the book "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child." It was recommended by many (thank you!!). In one week we have gone from a late night baby who fights sleep to a 6:30 pm bedtime with no crying!! We are still working on taking longer naps and sleeping through the night, but a huge burden has been taken off all our shoulders. Reagan and I use to dread the evening. Now it is so relaxing. The first night she went to sleep early with no fuss we looked at one another and said, "what do we do now".


  1. That is awesome Patty! "What do we do now?" Enjoy each other, quiet, movies...whatevs!!

    BTW: Is there a book on how to get teenagers to go to bed early?

    Love you,
    Your sister Sarah :)
