January Updates

Carter: He is now 11 months old, one more month until the he hits the big O-N-E!!! He can now shake his head no, put his head to his shoulder, give kisses, and dance by bending his knees up and down. Elise: She has finally gotten a big girl bed. She says, "I'm a big girl now, not a baby so I get a new bed." Potty training is still going, some days are better than others and I am trying not to get discouraged. She also has started dressing up like a princess everyday. Daniel and I: Just planning trips to Utah and Idaho for the next few weeks. Can't wait!

First Word

Happy 2 1/2 Birthday to Elise and congrats to Carter for saying his first word. He would say sounds like mama and dada, but this time he clearly said his offical word which was, Boo! Love it! See video below.

A Week of Sickness

This week the Magalogo family has been sick. Maybe it was caused by trying to recover from the holidays. Who knows. The kids have a little bit of everything and we finally got them on antibiotics two days ago. Hopefully this will help.
One thing I've learned is trying to put eye drops into a baby and toddler's eyes is torture. If adults don't like to put in eye drops in their eyes then why would kids? Just a thought. It reminds me of that "Friends" episode when Monica was trying to put eye drops in Rachel's eyes and she was fighting it so bad.
Another winter update is Wyoming has been in the single digit temperatures and some days it gets up into the teens, but mostly it is just so darn cold. No plans for this weekend and I'm excited to just be home, relax and get my family better. Until then, I have a couple shots to share.

This is NOT blood! Elise came out and said proudly, "Mommy I painted my toenails!" Ahhh!
And that's all from us this week...

"It's a New Dawn, it's a New Day and I'm Feeling Good!"

Happy New Year everybody! I'm sure I will be accidentally writing 2010 for the next few months, but for today I wanted to do a little journal post. This week I was feeling so good apart from the 2-day migraine. I have been wearing my new wardrobe, rocking my new haircut and feeling a lot more confident. The joke is since I am no longer dressing like I am pregnant. I mean really it's been 10 months already! Another exciting thing for me is getting a second job, I know what you're thinking two jobs two kids, yup it's true. But the best part about it is I am the new reporter for the local newspaper. It's nice to actually use my bachelor's degree and start writing again. I will probably post some articles on here in the next little bit. That's it from me...
