What's your favorite thing about motherhood?

Rebecca: The love and joy that permeates every part of your life.

What's your favorite thing about being a father?

Chris: Has to be the adoring look in his eyes. The way he stares at me like I'm the most important person in his life, other than my wife. Sometimes he'll just stare, then break out into a fleeting smile. Occasionally making sounds in his attempt to convey love. Other than when he is asleep, Liam doesn't particularly like to be alone. Often when he has a crying fit, I'll pick him up and he'll see me as his overarching protector, and calms down immediately. Needless to say, I welcome this role.

What's your one tip for moms-to-be?

Rebecca: Get a night nurse. Stop everything and book one now! Even if you think you don't need one. Book it anyway. You won't regret it, trust me!

What's your one tip for new fathers?

Chris: One tip I would give new parents is that traveling with babies becomes easier with practice. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. Whether it is road trips or errands, don't be intimidated by a few failed attempts. Recently my wife and I did the 8 hour drive to Gulf Shores. During the trip planning phase, we knew we were in for a challenge. The longest ride we had taken was to Austin, and that ended with him screaming the entire duration home. After much back and forth, we decided that a memorable trip would be worth the inconvenience. Yes, it was difficult at times, but I would never trade the experience
