Hi, I'm Lag Liv and this is my blog. I started it in November of 2006, when I was a 2L at the University of Chicago law school and it quickly became a central part of my limited free time. In the throes of new motherhood (and 3L year), it was my place to vent, record milestones, and get advice. In a very dark time, it was my place to find support. And now, as a full-time attorney and mom of three, it's my platform to share this life that I love so much- and also to memorialize all the things my kids do so I can one day go back and fill in their baby books.
That's my husband JP. We both swam for UT in college and met by getting kicked out of a bar at the same time on my first night of college. Four years and two college degrees later, we got married, and two days after that, we drove up to Chicago so I could start law school. As soon as I graduated, we drove back to Texas with our 1-year-old in tow so he could start business school at UT. Now we've got an MBA, a JD, and 3 delightful children. JP owns a swim school and swim products company and is an amazing husband and father and the most supportive, loving partner I could ask for.
This is our Landon. He was born 5 weeks early in July of 2007, the summer after my 2L year. He gave us a rather difficult time as a baby, but has more than made up for it with his generous nature and easy-going disposition. He is super social, super smart, loves to run and swim, and considers his sisters' happiness to be his personal mission in life.
That's our Claire (aka Clairebear and Biscuit). She was born in June of 2010, near the end of my 2nd year at the firm, and was as easy a baby as her brother was hard. She is funny, fierce, and extremely affectionate. Her favorite things are her big brother and baby sister, wearing sunglasses, singing to the radio, giving hugs, running, swimming, and being outside.
And this is Cora. She was born in November 2013, during my 2nd year at the SEC. She's joined right in with the fun and smiles of the family and clearly LOVES being part of the pack. As far as we can tell she loves everything (except cake), but her particular favorites are her big siblings, her daddy's sunglasses, dunking her face in water, and smiling all the time.
