Oh Happy Day!

That song from Sister Act II has been in my head all week, I thought it was very fitting for my mood. Today my mom comes into town for a whole week! I'm very happy to have her spend some time with Elise. Daniel and I now realize we need to baby proof the house. After all she is figuring out this whole moving thing pretty quick.
This week was full of things breaking; our vacuum, our TV and my blow dryer. I kept wondering, is this suppose to mean something? I mean seriously all breaking in the same week? Anyways, we got the vacuumed fixed, brought our other TV from our room out in the family room and as for the blow dryer, I have yet to purchase a new one.
What else, oh yeah, our new favorite show Leverage (TNT, Tuesday nights) was enjoyable as usual. I love it because no matter what, they always win in the end. It's like Ocean's Eleven every episode. American Idol was also enjoyable this week, because for some reason this year, at every city we seem to recognize at least one person we know, it's pretty funny.
Have fun at your super bowl parties this year. That's all for now, have a great weekend.

First Tooth!

This week Elise has been a little fussier than normal, waking up almost every night, then tonight I felt her first tooth! That was very exciting! This week was also very exciting with our new President being sworn in to office. I even watched President Obama greet a crowd at one of his inaugural balls by stating, A-L-O-H-A! I believe any President who greets others by saying Aloha is okay by me. I mean if you think about he's just a local boy and we all know I like local boys! Welcome President Obama! Until the next post...

Sleeping so peacefully
Happy Girl!
Going to church in style!
She so sweet!

Sunny Saturday!

Nothing too exciting this week, just the same as always. My friend Anuhea had her baby girl, Kalena. Elise was very excited to see her new friend. They are 6 months to the day apart. Below are some new cute pictures of Elise and Kalena.

I love you Mommy!
Happy!

Happy 6 Month Birthday Elise!

People always tell you once you have a baby, time flies, well I am beginning to realize that. Tomorrow Elise turns 6 months, I can hardly believe where the time has gone. I remember people asking me how many weeks old she was, how many pounds etc etc. Now my friend Anuhea is set to have her baby anyday now and she was asking me questions about my labor, needless to say I am already forgetting, how is this possible? I'm thinking that's just what happens and that's why women all over the world do this again and again, they forget, and then it happens all over again.
Elise got her first cold this week along with a great check up at the doctor's office. She now weighs 16 pounds and was very smiley to everyone at the office. The other big excitement this week in the Magalogo family is we got a new car. Hey I know people get new cars all the time, but this time it happened to us. We had been contemplating about getting a larger car since Elise came. It was pretty funny seeing us squished in our tiny Honda Civic for the trek up to Wyoming for Thanksgiving with all our baby gear. So we looked at our options and then decided to purchase a Dodge Durango. My first automatic car in 5 years. The car salesman pratically mauled us straight from stepping out of our car to make us a sale, it was hilarious! Now we have a safer vehicle for the snow in Utah, and for traveling to Wyoming and Idaho to see family. We are very happy! Until next week...

Uploading Videos!

It took a while, but I figured it out. Here are some videos I have been wanting to post for some time now. Enjoy :)

This first video is Daniel singing John Legend song Ordinary People, he looks down a lot, but that's because he is reading the words while singing to the music. I love it!!!!!!!

This video is probably one of the funniest things I saw on TV in 2008.






This video is Daniel's group, singing one of my favorite songs, Drop Baby Drop.




Daddy making Elise laugh, a lot!!!!

Happy New Year!

Elise got all dolled up for her New Year's Eve party at home with Mommy. Including her sparkly dress and bow for effect.
However, she didn't stay up until midnight this year (sadly me either)Playing with all her new toys When does the New Year's Eve dance start?
Getting bigger!
