The Zee Family is made up of a lot of love, a bit of drool and a bunch of fur.
Scott and Wendy met in Aug. 2006 — he was sporting a long, shaggy ‘do and an end-of-the-summer tan. She was wearing flip-flops and a nervous smile. It was a blind date at a baseball game. She was introduced to Yuengling beer and he handled an hour-long conversation having to do with the cute butt of the pitcher on the team.
We kissed on our third date and moved in together within three months.
Our family started with my two kitten-sisters Clara and Eva.
And then we added a Yorkshire Terrier named Izzie, whose energy still has not dwindled four years later.
We bought our first home and adopted a stray cat named Rocky (for his fighting potential) and a rescued racer Greyhound named Proud Man (of the Fuzz Face family).
We were married Sept, 26, 2009.
She wore white; he nearly passed out. The unity candle didn’t light.
We became parents on Aug. 7, 2010. Zachary was diagnosed with Down Syndrome one week later. DS isn’t a big deal, we’ve learned. Our son is healthy and happy. He loves playing with Rocky’s tail and playing Pattycake. He’s working on signing and walking and becoming the independent man we know he can be.
Zachary became a big brother in May 2012 when we add a lot of pink to our house via Addison Caroline. She has a lot of hair and a lot of personality, with a smidge of attitude. Daddy’s hoping for a princess; Momma wants a tomboy like herself.
Scott’s a country boy at heart and lives only 15 miles from the house he grew up in in Central PA. He’s a hard-working carpenter who loves sports and the outdoors and his family and friends. He’s goofy and funny and intensely loyal.
Wendy’s a Jersey Girl with a love for reading, writing, the outdoors and most especially her still-blossoming photography. She’s usually got a camera with her but most of our loved ones just ignore the Paparazzo by now. She’s a Fierce Love kind of Momma and Wife.
It’s a crazy world, but it’s our little Zee World. And we wouldn’t change a thing.
