Are you still there???

How long has it been... let's see, my last post was way back in March! Since then our lives have kind of done a 180. In those 4 short months a lot has been going on. First a foremost I should mention we are having another baby! This was a huge and very very very very very very unexpected surprise. It has taken me a while to come around to the idea of having another kid since I wasn't exactly thrilled about it in the first place. I have since learned the importance of using birth control on a regular basis. The first couple months of being pregnant is also a very hard time for me, besides being sick constantly and knowing you still have months to go before it's over, I went through kind of a small depression. I remember now how it felt the first time and I think the Lord gives me this challenge to make me realize how important it is to bring another spirit into this world. I am finally over the big sick part and today we just found out we are having a girl! She is due December 6th.

This pregnancy has been very different in the fact that I need to eat everything I see, so when you see me 400 lbs from now, please blame the baby. We also just moved 4 weeks ago up to South Weber, which is just south of Ogden. Mike is going to Weber next month so he made me move with him! I have to say that it has been A LOT better than I thought it would be. I keep finding more things to like and it is BEAUTIFUL up here. We love our neighborhood, the views, the ward, and it feels like home. We'll see if that opinion changes in a year or so, but we are stuck up here for at least 2 or 3 years.

More catch up:

We went to Disneyland in May with my whole family. IT WAS A BLAST

We hiked the Subway in Zion. I do not recommend this, at least not in May in freezing cold 30 degree water.

Tate broke his leg. If I can let this happen when we just have 1 kid, how am I going to handle 2?

I ran the SLC 1/2 marathon with my mom and sister in law Alexis. My goal was to run the full down in St George in October, but 2 days before signing up I found out I was pregnant. I will do it next year

and Tate is getting bigger!
