Week 22 and Estate Planning with Mama and Lawyer Jennifer Lewis Kannegieter

Welcome to week 22, mamas!! This week baby is about 11 inches long and weighs almost a pound. If you could see your little one right now, you would spot the lanugo (or fine hair) covering his body. He’s also covered in wrinkly skin that will remain this way until he fills out and puts some fat to fill those wrinkles in. (I just picture a little baby Shar-Pei). Baby is starting to hear sounds from inside your body like your breathing and heartbeat. Soon he will be able to hear sounds from the outside world. So get your favorite playlist ready to serenade your baby!

This is our second week in the resolutions series.

Listen, mama, I get that thinking about death and wills and who’s going to get your kids, should you meet an untimely death, but it’s really Important to start thinking of this stuff now instead of when it’s too late.
