Tyler Blogs Again!

These last few months have been very hard for me and I can say that they were very unanticipated. Not only has it been a roller-coaster for Lacey (being pregnant and very sick) but it has taken such an incredible toll on me as well. I won't be anywhere near in comparison to the hardships of Lacey; nor am I implying that I have it easy. I never imagined that it would be so hard to be the husband in a pregnant relationship. I've been trying all that I can to be doing everything for Lacey; buying food on the spot to catch her cravings, attempting to be emotionally supportive, etc.. It hasn't been delightful that's for sure. If this is how all pregnancies go for us, this definitely hasn't been a good motivator to have more. However, I've had many people tell me that when the baby comes it will make the whole journey worth it. Let's just hope the baby isn't at all like me and then we can say it was worth it.
Work has been interesting. I know for sure that interpreting is not the job I've always dreamed of and it will not be what I do for the rest of my life. It pays our bills and gets us out of debt... sure... I just don't love it. This has really been a driving force for me to consider what I want to be studying in college. Film and sound work still is in the corners of my thoughts, but it isn't the only one. I've also been considering Meteorology and maybe even becoming a Doctor. Both of those fields would then require me to transfer to the University of Utah because Utah Valley University doesn't have any of those programs. I still have a long way to go. However, on the upside, I could be graduating with my associates as soon as December! That is if I can get the classes I want and figure out one small little problem with taking a class in the middle of the day. Other than that, that's my goal.
I don't blog here often, but seeing that my client hasn't shown up for the last hour, I thought I would. Another positive thing is that I'm not screaming and yelling! That's got to be good right?

Well, I have some good news. In some recent posts, I have stated that nothing new or exciting has been going on in our lives, but I admit, I have lied. Well, not really lied but kept a secret. Tyler and I are having a new addition to our home. We are pregnant!!! I am 10 weeks a long. I am due at the beginning of October. It is something we are both excited for. :)

In case you were wondering, we were not planning this at all. We weren't even going to start trying until this fall, but I guess Heavenly Father had other plans for us. It is funny how things work out. I will be graduating on May 1st with my bachelor's degree so I won't have to worry about going back to school. I am still working on my interpreting certification, but I have faith that it will all work out.

The only thing about this pregnancy so far is that I have been sick. I was sick the first few weeks, but now that I am farther, it seems to have gotten worse. I seem to call the doctor all the time :) That is what they are there for ;) We went to see the doctor yesterday and he said the baby is healthy and kicking, literally. I obviously can't feel it right now, but it was cool to see the arms going all over the place and to see the heart beat. In 8 weeks, we will be able to see what it is (male/female).

This is definitely an exciting time in our life. We are excited for my parents to become grandparents for the third time and I know they are excited as well. I wish they lived closer, but nothing we can do about that right now. That is our exciting news for now. We will keep you updated :)

Tax Money

Tyler and I finished with our taxes a few weeks ago. We like to get it done and over with so we don't have to worry about it any more. We got some money back and we were trying to decide what we wanted to do with it. We thought about splitting it up an each having half, but then we decided to get a big gift for both of us. We decided to get another Wii. We sold our first one to some friends. We don't regret this at all. We didn't use the Wii back then. Recently, Wii has come out with some amazing games and we missed our Wii. We did buy the Wii with the Wii Fit and Mario Kart. We are excited to play the games more than we ever have. Tyler is already playing it about every night. We are excited about our decision and it was worth every penny :)
