Our Growing Family

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020

I am completely overwhelmed by all of the kind thoughts and words from this past week. Mad and I couldn’t be happier and it meant so much to be able to share that joy with you guys. As I woke up yesterday (my 33rd birthday!!!), I felt so much gratitude for this season…with one little one crawling all over me and one growing inside me :).

I can’t help but think of you guys fighting for pregnancy and babies. My heart goes out to you. It was a fear I always had having watched close loved ones go down that same challenging journey. YOU are the real warriors! Sending love and prayers your way for strength and peace.


We can’t wait for new little guy/girl…any guesses?!! Here’s where we found out the gender. We don’t have specific plans or timing to announce but may do it soon! We’ll share the name after he/she is born :).

I don’t know if you’re ever really ready…but it did feel like the right time to grow. We knew we wanted more kids, and wanted to have them close in age. My brother and I were close, and I wanted the same for my kids. So…started trying for baby No.2 a few months ago and we’re honestly surprised at how quickly it happened. It had taken a little while longer with Navy.

Things I’ve noticed with this pregnancy…
* I’m a lot sicker
* I’ve had indigestion throughout this pregnancy (with Navy it was just near the end)
* Exhaustion!!!
* I still have cravings for tomatoes and V8 (same as the 1st!)

Things I want to do differently with this pregnancy…
* Obsess less
* Read less
* Worry less
* Trust my body more
* Listen to my body more
* Rest more

  1. Tips For Communicating With Your Lawyer For Less Money

    Nobody wants to think about the potential for needing an attorney. The idea of hiring one can create stress on many levels, particularly because it can mean that you are in trouble of some kind. Regardless of the circumstances, there is no need to be overly concerned about choosing the right lawyer to guide you through the legal process. Read on for some insights on what to look for and how to choose wisely.

  2. Don’t just pick the first lawyer you find on the Internet. It is tempting to think lawyers all do the same thing, but they can vary in quality and expertise. Ask friends if they know a good lawyer and what he represented them for. Be picky when choosing legal help.

  3. Take your time when looking for a lawyer. You may be tempted to hire the first one you talk to, but this is not a good idea. You need to shop around for a lawyer the same way that you would for a car. Only then can you decide which attorney is a good fit for you.

  4. Make sure the lawyer that you chose is licensed in the area that the case will be held. Lawyers must be licensed in a jurisdiction to be allowed to practice there. Most practice in entire states, while others hold licenses around the country. Be sure to know this information before you sign on with a lawyer.

    While there are many jokes about how lawyers are dishonest and sneaky, most are actually interested in a fair settlement. When searching for an attorney, get some references and do some research ahead of time. Your final decision should be based on your own personal gut feeling about the integrity of the lawyer you hire.

    Be upfront with your new lawyer about your budget. Set a budget based on your means and your needs, and insist that the lawyer stick to it. If the lawyer needs to go over the budget, make sure it is not done without your express permission. Keep all the receipts!

    The first and foremost characteristic you need to look for in a lawyer is trustworthiness. Although most of them are completely on the up-and-up, a few are not and you need to avoid them. Get a good feel for their ethics and standards in practice before making your decision to hire.

    If you need a lawyer for a criminal case, do your best to gather all the information they will need to defend you. Your lawyer may request other documents that you might not have with you, but you are better off having everything ready before they need them. If your lawyer asks you for something, you need to give it to them, even if it is detrimental to your case.

    Lawyers are often a laughing matter, but it is not so funny when you actually need one. With luck, this article has given you some good ideas on how to find a good lawyer and how to use one effectively in protecting yourself and interests in life. Good luck!
