“If you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans.”

-Christina Wentz, how their plans all changed and how amazing that change is!


Matt and I met back in 2007. I had moved back to Illinois after living in Florida for a few years and we were both going to Western. As soon as we started dating I had a feeling that this was not going to be just another guy that I would date for awhile and move on. Ten years later I know that feeling was definitely right on, he works so hard to support and take care of our family. When we got engaged in 2010 we both knew we wanted kids eventually, and that we were already 27 & 32 so we didn’t want to wait a long time to start a family, but we also kind of wanted to a little bit and settle into married life.


As they say, “if you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans.” We were married in April 2011 and Rosella Joyce was born 9 months and 7 days later. Ryne Matthew joined us 22 months and our family couldn’t be more complete. They are the center of our universe. I know it’s what everyone says, but neither of us really ever understood how you can love someone with all of your being until these two came into the world.


Parenting ain’t no joke though. Rosella “Ella” is my super chatty, curious, independent, and artistic little girl. She will for real talk from the moment she wakes until she talks herself to sleep (and in her sleep), and always has a million questions.


Ryne on the other hand is my wild and crazy, moody, and curious little mamas boy.


Both are completely capable of testing our patience and melting our hearts in the same minute. It’s not always easy but it’s so always worth it to see these two little people grow into smart and kind human beings." - Christina and the story of her family


I enjoyed seeing this family again, Ryne is slowly warming up to me! I'm looking forward to watching this family grow through the years. Enjoy your slideshow and click HD to view it! -Trisha K.
