Strange "fly" filled with babies?

OK that's probably a horrible title but I have no idea how to explain this.

FYI we live in Northern AZ. We have a plethora of insects, snakes, spiders, etc, but this one is new to me.

Today while in the bathroom, an insect was flying around that looked similar to a housefly (approximately half that size but the same basic shape). It was flying very slowly, like it was heavy (I know that sounds crazy). It kept trying to fly into my hubby's face & then vanished.

Fast forward to about an hour ago. I was reading with a book light & that crazy thing flew right up to the light bulb. It startled me so I accidentally squished it on my book (ewwww) and out popped several VERY tiny insects the color of honey with teenie-tiny little legs and very hard shells/exoskeletons (took me several attempts to squish them). They were the size of a grain of salt and did not have wings.

Of course, I had visions of millions of the little buggers crawling all over me but I only found 3 .

And idea what it could have been?
