Family plays a crucial role in our lives. Nicole comes from a huge close-knit family, whereas Lindsay comes from a smaller one. Sundays are spent at Nicole’s mom’s house where usually over 20 family and friends come together for BBQ’s, pool time, birthday dinners and holidays.
We try to get out to Lindsay’s family once a month, who live about two and a half hours away in New Jersey. The newest family additions (our niece and nephew) arrived a year ago so we try to frequent there more often to spend time with them. We are grateful to have plenty of support from our family. With tons of cousins that are stay-at-home-moms, many of our family members are eager to help us raise this child. They say it takes a village, and we certainly have a large one!
Friends also play a vital role in our life. We have always gone with the motto, “quality over quantity” when it comes to our friendships. Most of our friends all have children already, so this baby will be welcomed with open arms and many playmates!
We have two dogs; a two and a half year old Goldendoodle and a two-year-old cockapoo who we adore. They recently went to specialized training to prepare for a baby in our home and will make great canine companions.
