The Big Year

This year of 2014 is a big one for the Thompson's. We will have moved twice with potential for a third, we have a baby due in August, and Justin graduates as a Doctor of Chiropractic in October.

But first things first, the biggest news. Yes, we're pregnant! It's a little girl and she is due the middle to end of August. We weren't exactly trying but we had decided to stop preventing having kids. But both of us knew without saying it that it was time to have a baby. Now we refer to her as "belly" most of the time since we haven't been able to think of a name yet. She is pretty active in there, especially in the mornings. Justin and I love to feel her moving around, and he is convinced about how cute she is already.

Already a lot has happened just since being here in Redding. I am so grateful to my in-laws for helping us pack up our home in Davenport and take it to Utah. We moved here the first week of March and are renting a room out of an elderly couple's home. At first I was a little weary of the situation but, you can live anywhere for 3 months, right?! Our room is right next to theirs and our bathroom is just across the hall. They are really sweet people though and have been really kind to us. We have just the bare necessities: bed, closet, desk, mini fridge, microwave, and of course our own little balcony. Justin works at the VA clinic Mon-Thurs and I've taken the opportunity to just take it easy these 3 months. (I've read a lot of books!)

Now we are getting ready to move to Utah for Justin's second and final internship. He will be working at his uncle's office until graduation in October and then we'll see what happens from there. We could stay or we could buy/open up a practice somewhere else. I'm just taking it one step at a time!
