Coming this Fall 
one sweet little baby Reid!

I was able to catch Mike's reaction on camera when I told him I was pregnant. Look at that cute dad to be.
Although the sign says November I am actually due October 29. I can not even begin to express the emotions I have felt over the fast few months. I am so excited to be a mother and I am already so attached to this sweet little baby inside of me. I have felt so blessed over the past few weeks. My family has done so much to take care of me and to do the things that I normally do and can't.
I have had many emotional moments thinking about my wonderful mother since I have been pregnant. I have had a hard pregnancy so far and some days are really difficult. It has made me appreciate my mom so much more than I ever did before. I had no idea what pregnancy was like. Just knowing that my mom went through all of that to bring me into the world has just made my love for her grow even more. I appreciate every day she felt nauseous and sick and weak for me. I am so happy that I can do that for our sweet little baby. She has helped me so much and I truly love her.
I could not have asked for a more caring husband. Mike has been my rock these past few months. He has been by my side comforting me and taking care of me. He has emptied countless bowls of throw up and given me so many back scratches when my nausea has been so bad. He gets me food when I can't get out of bed and will drop everything to help me. I honestly don't know how I could have done this without him. He has been positive and supportive. I think this picture just goes to show he will be an amazing dad.

We are so excited and feel so blessed for this baby to come. We can't wait until October  and we get to meet this little boy or girl

University of Michigan Dental School

I decided it was about time we made the official announcement. This June Mike will be attending the University of Michigan Dental program. I don't think we could be more grateful for this opportunity. We had heard a lot of stories about people not getting in their first year of applying. We were really nervous about it. We prayed a lot and tried to stay as positive as we could. We applied to a lot of different places and for so long we had that strange feeling of having no idea where we would be the next year. When Mike got called in early September for an interview in Michigan we were so excited. This was the first step to getting in. When he came back from his trip I could just tell he felt great about it. There were some other schools in the running but in the end it was the call that came December 1st that made all our worries go away. He had been accepted to dental school and we were beside ourselves. We wanted to wait and see how things worked out but in the end we kind of always knew we would be going there. So congratulations to my talented, smart and amazing husband. He worked so hard for this and I am so proud of him. Michigan here we come!!!!

 Yeah I guess they really love their football. Say hello to the largest college football stadium in the country. At least we will still bleed blue right?

California Love
I am playing catch up. At the end of February we went down to California for our nephew Ryan's baptism. It was a quick trip but it was so fun. We drove down with our friends Trent and Stephanie. I honestly was so bad at taking pictures but I did bring my camera the one day we went to the beach. So here is a little picture overload for you.

 I decided I would be better and at least post a few pictures from yesterday. 
So here is Easter with the Magleby crew.

Mike and Josephine have a very interesting relationship
