We arrived in Utah on a Sunday, Leo began work the next day, Monday. On Tuesday we found out I was pregnant! And on Wednesday I got offered my first nursing job on 3 West at St. Mark's Hospital! We were so very very blessed! Welcome to Utah!
And as an interesting aside: I had always said I wanted to get a nursing job and have several months experience in that before we started our family. However, lately we had felt distinctly that we should not wait any longer in trying to have a baby. Clearly, the Lord had a different plan in mind. After months of not being successful in finding a job in CA as a new grad, I got offered one after just one interview in Utah; coincidentally, the very day after finding out we would be having a baby. Lesson learned: follow the counsel of the Lord and you will be blessed.

|Around Halloween we decided to announce the upcoming addition to our little family. This was her due date. :) One day she'd be this big inside of me. Crazy!|
