We have an announcement! We might be adding a new member to the family come December! Not that this is anybody’s business but our own we are super excited to say that we are going to start trying for a baby once I graduate in December! We have gone back and forth on when we want to start expanding our family and we are so excited!
Some might say we are too young, too inexperienced, too naive, need to travel, need to do this and do that and we simply do not care about those opinions. We feel that this is the right decision for us and our family and we are so so excited and we hope that our families and our Ok Listen Here family will also be excited for us!
Everyone that I have told so far has literally told me that they pretty much knew that it was going to happen which cracks me up because I have said I wanted to wait a year after I graduate. My sister’s exact words were “I figured that that was y’all’s plan”. Miss Lillian Renee needs a little cousin to bully ;). Obviously, we don’t know when it is going to happen or even if it’ll happen anytime soon after December but all I can say is that we are so excited at the possibility.
The reason I say that we don’t care about other people’s opinions is that we have to do what is right for us and we have to do what we think will make us happy not only in the short-term but also in the long-term. I simply do not want to wait five years to have a baby. And I’m not throwing shade or hating on anybody who does that but what people have to realize is that it is our decision and you do what is right for you and we will do what is right for us. I have had some people express to me that they regret not waiting longer to have a baby and that’s fine you can feel that way but for me personally, I doubt I will. And if I do then oh well because I made that decision for myself and I have to live with that. With that being said I don’t want to diminish anyone’s opinion but before anyone says anything to me ask yourself this “am I saying this because I think I know what’s best for them?” and if you are then maybe don’t say it. Nobody knows what is best for us except for us.
Dawson and I have talked about this at length. We don’t have everything figured out, but then again who does? Please don’t be that person that rains on our parade because you think you know what is best for us, or because you’ve been through it so you know the perfect time to have a baby or any other reason. All we ask for is support and happiness and if you can’t do that then please fake it till you make it or don’t talk about it at all. Like I said earlier this is nobody’s business but this page is a place for me to talk about the new and exciting things that are going on in my life. We made this decision almost a month ago and we want to share the news! We hope that everyone will be understanding and supportive of us and look out for that pregnancy announcement within the next year! As always thank you for coming to my ted talk/psa/exciting announcement.
