Time for an update...

Well it's time to update again! We have had so much going on lately that things have been a little overwhelming, it has all been good things though! Just a lot of changes all coming at once.

We were incredibly grateful when Tim was offered 2 jobs a couple of weeks ago. One at and one at Universal Systems. He was really hoping for the second one because that is more of an IT job whereas Overstock was more web design. So he accepted the one at Universal Systems. It is such a great opportunity for him. He will have the opportunity to learn a lot of things that will be so beneficial for him. They will be putting him through some training to get certifications that will really help him and set him apart in the future. We are so grateful for such an amazing opportunity, especially after waiting so long for him to find something good.

Since Tim's job is in south Salt Lake we decided to move that direction. We found a great condo in Bluffdale that we will be moving into on Saturday. It was a long and stressful process to find something to rent, especially because we did not have a ton of time. I think we made a good choice though. It is little further south than we wanted to end up but the condo itself is great. It is somewhere that we can be comfortable and feel safe, which is what is most important. Anything closer was really expensive unless we lived somewhere that we weren't totally comfortable with. I am a sad to be leaving our house here but I am excited for all the changes that are coming our way.

Baby McDonald is doing great. At my appointment last week weighed 4 pounds, which puts him in the 37th percentile. (I thought 4 pounds already sounded huge but I guess not!) He is head down and right on schedule! I have to admit that I am getting a little scared about the whole labor part of it. I have to keep reminding myself that once he is here it will be worth whatever pain/grossness I have to go through! I really can't wait to meet him though. I am just over 33 weeks now and it seems so unreal that he will be here in just 7 weeks, or less! My mom and sister, Ashley, threw me a fabulous baby shower on Saturday. It was so much fun. There was delicious food and fabulous company. We are so blessed to have so many people supporting us! Baby received some wonderful gifts and it feels nice to be a little more prepared for his arrival. I am excited to move so we can put his room together and start getting all the little things ready. Unfortunately, I did not get pictures of the shower, I was too busy having fun :) I got one picture with a few of my friends there but that was pretty much it. Thanks so much Mom and Ash! It was a great shower!

The only decent picture I left with :) Me, Megan, Nicole, Kate and baby Lauren
