My first official post.....

Some may say finally................ I know I have been saying that I was going to get this blog up and running for about two years now, but thankfully, there is always repentance!! Anyway, the Mosher family is doing very well. I should probably update most of you on our life, because it is sad, but we just don't get to see very much of each other with us living on the complete opposite side of the country!

Tim is doing great. He is finishing his second year of dental school here at the University of Pittsburgh and has really enjoyed it. It has been a crazy run, but hopefully things should start easing up here in a month or so. He has mostly been in heavy duty science classes for this first part, and will have to take the first round of boards on the 27th of June......not fun. Heaven only knows how much he has been studying and of course the endless amount he still has to study, but he is doing well and pretty much looking forward to it being over. As am I. Once he finishes this summer semester and then takes boards, he will be ready to head into the clinic and actually start doing some real dentistry. I know he is really looking forward to that and hopefully his schedule will open up a little bit. But all in all, we are so thankful for the opportunity to be out here and having this amazing experience.

Hudson is pretty much two now. I seriously do not know where the time has gone and it seems like I was just holding him in the hospital thinking, "what in the world have I done and do I really take him home with me?" Oh the days of being a new mother.......thankfully those fears and concerns have gone and have been replaced with such immense joy that I find myself just watching him thinking he HAS to be the cutest little boy that I have ever seen......and of course I am not biased. His birthday is coming up on the 16th of this month and I definitely need to get on the stick and get something planned......knowing me and my family, I will procrastinate until the weekend before and then throw something together that he will hopefully love. He is absolutely OBSESSED with "Cars" and cannot stand to put Lightning McQueen and Mater down. He loves everything having to do with the outdoors especially throwing rocks off the cliff in our backyard. He has quite the funny personality and has become a little tease lately. He will go around tickling everyone and then laugh his head off. I am not sure what to do about it because most of his little girlfriends don't love it, but I have not convinced him of that yet. I guess he will learn someday. He is such a fun little boy and so loving- he will constantly come up to me, say "mommy" and give me a big hug and kiss and pat me on the back and shoulder. I love those moments. Oh, and I must mention his unbelievable love for JEEPS. Seriously, he has to be his father's son because he loves our red jeep and can spot other jeeps from a mile away......way before I can even think about finding one. It is hilarious. The only thing I cringed with at first was the mere fact that he calls them "PEE PEE". He cannot say jeep I guess, and so of course, he has to replace it with pee pee. I honestly had to get used to the fact that we would go in public and he would see a jeep and yell at the top of his lungs, "Mommy, pee pee!!" Nightmare. I just had to accept it and have now found myself slipping every once in awhile! Hudson loves to just drive around and look for jeeps and will ask me EVERY morning..... "mommy, where's da da?" which I reply with, "he is at school" and then he asks, "mommy, where's pee pee?" He has to know if we have the jeep that day or if his dad took it. It is pure comedy. I have added a video that Tim and I took as we were out jeep hunting one evening in our parking lot.



As for me, I am doing great.......pregnant, but great. I am now 27 weeks along and getting bigger by the moment!! I swear the pregnant part has never been my favorite, but it is definitely worth all of it. I am due Sept. 18th and we found out it is another little boy!! Tim and I are both way excited to have two little boys. It will be crazy to have more than just Hudson and it may be a bit of a transition, especially for Hudson, but we are looking forward to it. Currently the baby is nameless as we have not been able to come up with a name that we both like, but hopefully Tim will give in as there is a name that I love. But we are keeping our options open so if any of you have any names, let me know. As for life here in Pittsburgh, I really like it. I love being home with Hudson and we are spending many of our days at the pool and playing "Cars". I am so thankful to be able to stay home with him. I can't imagine leaving him. I was just released from the Primary Presidency and although I miss it terribly, it was fun to be able to go to Sunday school with Tim in I don't even know how long. It is definitely weird to be in Relief Society again. But I am taking advantage of my time off in between callings. It is definitely nice. Anyway, I am going to post this just so that I can actually get started on it. I will try and post again today as we celebrated Hudson's 2nd birthday yesterday. It was a blast and I cannot believe where the time has gone. It has gone so fast. We miss you all and love you!

Tanis, I found your blog link from Melanie's...I haven't seen/talked to you forever it seems! Your little family is so cute and I'm glad things are well with you. Your son is ADORABLE and congrats on baby #2 on the way! I, too, am expecting (our first boy!)in August. It'll make #4 for us...yes, i'm a little shocked myself that I'll have four kids. It's crazy how time flies...especially when kids come along! Anyway, I'm glad you are doing well, keep in touch!
