SO much has happened in the past two months I don't know where to start. We moved to Utah, found a doctor/hospital, found a home/moved in, had a baby, celebrated Halloween, and here we are.
On October 30th at 8:34am, Ruby was born! She was 6 lbs, 10oz and 19 inches long. She was a week early, and I couldn't be happier with how her delivery went. It was almost identical to Bradleys delivery. I started contracting at home around 12:30am, had my epidural a couple hours later, and she was out in 2 pushes! It was great. The only hiccup was the Doctors needed 4 tries to get my IV in correctly, which hurt almost more than a contraction.
She is so peaceful and brings such a special spirit into our home. I was worried Bradley wasn't going to handle having a sister very well, but he is so helpful. Every time she cries he'll find her pacifier and hand it to her. He brings her her blanket and always says "hi" in the mornings. He really is the sweetest big brother and I feel so blessed to have 2 amazing children. Adam has been such a GREAT help and so habe my parents. We live about 10 minutes from my parents home, which is great because Bradley loves hanging out at their house.
Life is getting busier, but the transition has been wonderful. I love being a mom and can't wait to see them grow up!

Here I am at 33 weeks. This is the LAST picture you'll see of my belly because I'm getting bigger by the minute and its not cute. I seriously feel like I'm the same size as I was when I delivered Bradley! On the upside, only 6 and a half more weeks until I get to meet Ruby! I can't wait to have a baby girl and cuddle another newborn. I'm trying to get Bradley prepared, but he doesn't have a clue that his world is going to change. Less than 2 months, home stretch!!

WE ARE MOVING TO UTAH!!!! Remember how I said my life has been crazy lately? Well, that's an understatement. Between job interviews and the deadline of our second child approaching in just 8 weeks, things have been pretty stressful. I'm happy to say that everything is finally working itself out and we are getting excited about this HUGE change in our lives. It's funny how everything tends to work out when you feel like life will never make sense. FOr a while we thought it was impossible to relocate our family in such a short amount of time, but our prayers have been answered.
As excited as I am to start a new life with our little family, I'm going to miss my San Diego friends dearly. We've been here for almost 5 years and its hard to imagine us anywhere else. We're going to miss California, its all we know. I hope we learn to love Utah as well. The last thing I have to figure out is who I want my Doctor to be and what Hospital to deliver our Ruby in (we're naming her Ruby :). Did I mention I only have 8 weeks until she's born?!!? Crazy. Life never slows down I guess :)
Wish us luck in the snow!
