A New Life!!!

Okay, this post is long overdue. We have been super busy with a few changes, but they are big changes. Change #1, last week Jean and I closed on a home in Lehi! We are super excited about it and really are happy here! We moved in over the weekend and got lots done. Jean installed our garage opener, as well as do other manly handyman garage type stuff and I organized our stuff (despite what any of you say, I still feel I have too much crap and it stresses me out). Jean really loves the garage and organizing his tools, and I really love that he can do so much to set up our house. We got our blinds in the mail yesterday so that is next on his list to install. Here are some pics of the house prior to moving in so you can get an idea of what it looks like. It definitely is looking more "lived in" now.




I didn't really get any pics of the upstairs (well, I guess the hall bath...not terribly exciting) but the house has three bedrooms and two and a half baths. We get to landscape the backyard so I am going to be learning a lot, as I don't pretend to have a green thumb or know anything about yard stuff! Okay, drum roll please.....
Change #2....I am prego! Now that is more crazy to me than change #1. I am due sometime in December and am almost done with my first trimester...which hopefully means I am almost done with morning (really it is all day) sickness. That part is no fun but we are both really excited to be parents....yikes. Now that we have a house and a completely empty baby room, we are also excited to spend more money on baby stuff. It is really humbling to think that I will be a mama this year. I will just say that I have lots to prepare for!!! And it is so fun to see Jean talk about our future kiddo and how excited he gets! He is going to be one absolutely fabulous dad!!!! However did I get so blessed? Anyway, thanks for letting us share our new life with you!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Wow, that is a LOT of big news! We're very excited for the two of you and hopefully one of these days we'll even get the chance to see your house and your upcoming baby in person. I hope you feel better soon! It was around 15 weeks that I started feeling really good.

Ahh! I love your house. It is so cute. And, ummm.... if I could think of any two people who would be great parents it would definitely be the two of you! I don't know if moms are allowed to be that cute though, so you might need to do something about that. :)

Michelle! I am so excited for you and Jean! Since you're in Utah, we should hang out sometime. We'd love to see your new place! If you are bored this Saturday morning, there's a parade in Eagle Mountain that I'll be drumming in with my pipeband. :)

Yeah...we're practically neighbors. We are so lucky to have you guys close. Your house is fantastic. I need to come see the "lived in" look. And it goes without saying, we can't wait to meet baby Rocha.

michelle (and jean) hooray, hooray, hooray! Soooo exciting, lots of big excitement! That is really great! I can't wait to see pics. of your [cute] house coming together, and updates on the pregnancy. We will be in J-utah in 2 weeks...maybe we can meet up for some ice cream- or whatever craving you may be having! YEAH!

Congratulations by the way.... sharp looking house, and I'm sure your kid will be sharp as well.. I don't know anything about landscaping so don't ask me, cough cough cough... but I read somewhere from an expert on the matter that a tennis court actually adds more value to a home then a swimming pool, and both would be ideal... another thing that adds value to a home is a tree that money grows on. I would plant that one in the backyard and get a big fence, otherwise its too tempting for the neighbors to help themselves to some of the money. Just some suggestions, take them for what they are worth... Spencer
