Right around that same time at the end of April, we received some more happy happy news, that we were expecting again! It was a very personal decision for us, but we decided that it would be best for us to start trying for another baby sooner rather than later after losing Audrey, so it wasn't too big of a shock, but we were and are super delighted to welcome this new addition to our family at the beginning of the year!
|I told David by bringing him cinnamon rolls in bed with the positive test and a note saying that we had our own little "bun in the oven!" I thought it was pretty clever, and he was so excited!|

I'll admit, it's been a lot harder this time around to get excited about everything, but now that I'm almost past where I made it last time around and I'm feeling her move all the time, it's slowly becoming more and more real! Plus I know with the holidays right around the corner, she'll be here before we know it!
This summer also marked the end of our Provo/Utah days as we prepared to move to Arizona for David to go to dental school. We kind of were in a weird transition, we sold our contract in Provo at the end of June, but we didn't need to be in Arizona until the end of August, so we had two months of kind of a limbo period where we stayed with my parents and just kind of hung out. It was actually really nice, it was the first and probably one of the only times where David was out of school with nothing to do, and I wasn't working, so we had a whole two months to just be together and do fun things! We took tons of trips, went to a couple of family reunions and just hung out! We were actually able to go to all five National Parks in Utah, as well as Goblin Valley, Cedar Breaks, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. We hiked and camped and explored, all favorite things of ours so it was really great. We took tons of pictures, but here are a couple just to give you an idea. :)

After the wedding, I flew out to Oregon to meet up with David and see his baby brother get back from his mission and his older brother get married! We got to stay for about a week, and it was really fun

Overall, we've been super blessed! I'm super grateful for the chances we had to see all those amazing places and to get to spend time with all our family and friends before we moved away, and I'm excited to see what Arizona has in store for us in the coming months and years! I promise I'll keep this more updated, especially in the New Year when I'll have tons of adorable pictures to post!
Thanks for reading guys, enjoy your week! Until next time!
