Isaac (31 years), Lauren (28 years), Cade (2 weeks)
narrated by: Isaac
Cade came home from the hospital, feisty and pink, his little fists banging angrily at the air as we drove him home. However, once he got home, he seemed much happier. I could see Lauren tense on the drive, thinking we were in for a rough ride. She doesn’t realize how ‘in’ I am for this parenthood gig.
Isaiah Gavigan is turning 33, and Maeve decided to make him a cheesecake for dessert. She tries to interest Margot in the baking process, but she scrambles off as soon as Maeve turns her back.
Isaiah brings the rugrat back to the kitchen, but she’s really not interested in baking. Maeve tries to not have hurt feelings over it, but she’s always wanted a daughter to bake with, and she never considered Margot might not enjoy it.

We got news that our aquarium was awarded the research funding that we requested. It meant two whole months outdoors on the ocean side of Audubon Island, exploring, tagging, really getting our hands dirty. I was listed as Lead Researcher which meant that Avery could help, but she’d have to take my orders and continue to run the aquarium.
Isaiah and Maeve Gavigan’s daughter, Margot turns one the day before they sign on their new house out in Millwood.
They are both eager to give Margot a sibling, and their two bedroom apartment didn’t fit their needs anymore. Maeve is saddened to leave Margot’s nursery behind for some new tenant to paint over. Isaiah has promised that the new house will make an even better nursery.
Isaac Gavigan (29 years), Lauren (27 years)
We are still working opposite shifts, that isn’t something that will change anytime soon unless one of us drop our jobs. Isaac did get promoted to Stock Manager at the grocery store and is actually bringing in a decent chunk of change. I’m still the breadwinner, but another promotion or so, and I believe he may pass me by.

Oliver McCarthy (32 years), Brooklyn Lange (26 years)
Brooklyn loves kids, she wouldn’t have become a teacher if she didn’t. However, loving them, being pregnant with one, and having them in a wedding were not of the same cloth. Oliver’s nieces and nephew tore up their bedroom, and frankly, she was too pregnant and exhausted from the end of year grading to deal with it.
Isaac Gavigan turns 29 this February, and after a hard night of partying, feels lucky that he gets to carry his very drunk wife home. Lauren is going to feel it in the morning, and Isaac thinks that brunch is in order. He’s really hoping that this year will go slower than the last few have; he feels ill-prepared to turn thirty.
