2 1/2 more weeks!

This is of course if all goes to plan and I am induced the week after Valentine's Day. We now have everything ready for baby boy to come, including my hospital bag packed and ready to go. The only interesting thing I found out is that due to the H1N1 virus nobody under the age of 15 can be in the delivery or recovery room after the baby is born. So it looks like Elise won't be there in the hospital, but maybe it will be easier for her to adjust when I bring baby home. My mom is coming out from Idaho to help, which I am super excited and grateful for. I just pray that all goes well with delivery, being in a smaller hospital etc. etc. I'm thinking I will probably get more special treatment for having him there. When Elise was born in Utah she was one of 22 babies born that same day. I remember the nurse telling me that I was lucky I even got a room, ouch! This week Elise has discovered coloring and is seriously becoming quite obsessed with Elmo. She is still continuing to talk more and more. My favorite animal noise that she does is a lion. Seriously this girl can ROAR! Today for the first time she said four words at the same time. Her phrase of choice, "What did you do?" Love it! Daniel and his brothers were asked to sing at an official announcement of candidacy for a local man running for Governor. Their video singing "America the Beautiful" is posted below. We will keep everybody updated on everything else. I'm so excited and I just can't hide it (Jesse Spano style).

Elder Magalogo is Home!

This week Daniel's brother Dayna came home from his mission in New Zealand. It didn't take long for Elise to get attached to her new favorite Uncle. They are like two peas in a pod, it's super cute:) I remember when he left he said that when he got home and met her for the first time she would be talking already. Guess what? He was right. Daniel's sister Elizabeth also got engaged this week. She and Toli are planning on a May wedding. We are very excited for them. If anyone wants to see a picture of them check out the November Ensign page 20, they're famous:) I also had a doctor's appointment this week and baby boy still looks healthy and is right on schedule. He has chubby cheeks in the ultrasound and the doctor said he has very long legs. Can't wait to meet him :) Until next week. The Magalogos

It's 2010!

I like to call it 20-10, I think it sounds better. I can't believe it is 2010, gee how times flies. I remember in high school thinking about my ten year reunion and how it would be in 2010, and now I realize that is this year. Weird! This week we were able to get the nursery set up for baby boy, and set up a cute table and chair set for Elise so she can feel like a big girl. Speaking of big girls Elise turns 18 months this Sunday. I had stopped posting monthly birthdays after the one year mark, but I feel 18 months is another milestone. I now have 7 weeks until I am due, or sooner if doctor will induce me :) So don't worry, I am sure to keep you posted. Until next week, The Magalogo Family

This is my favorite shot of the nursery. I love my flip flop blanket made by my Aunt Lynell The semi organized closet for Elise and baby boy to share I still need to put the skirt and mobile on, but you get the idea
