Local Superstars

The Magalogo Family are now local super stars. I had sent in the info on Carter to the local newspaper to post his birth announcement. I then received a call that Carter was the first baby born in 2010 in the area and that we had won over $200 in prizes. The picture below was featured in a full page spread in the paper announcing our winnings. As for us baby Carter is good, Elise is getting adjusted to having a brother and I have been recuperating from having spinal headaches due to a botched epidural during labor. I went back to the hospital a week after delivery and have a "blood patch" done in my spine (sounds scary huh?). But luckily all is well and my headaches are FINALLY gone! I can now focus on being a mom of two and enjoying my family. Thanks again mom for coming out and helping out with everything! Especially all the diaper changes, head massages and late nights with baby Carter. He misses his favorite Grammy already!

The new fam, notice Carter giving the camera a wave (I look just a little tired)

Elise, who can now open doors, walked out of the kitchen carrying a gigantic box of gold fish she took out of the pantry. I wanted to document this moment, she is so proud!

Carter Matai is here!

Carter Matai was born on February 16, 2010 weighing 7 pounds 8 ounces, and was 21 inches long. Delivery time from start to finish was 5 hours. My epidural didn't take, but I was able to get through it. Elise is very happy to have baby around. She keeps saying, baby baby baby! I will be posting more pictures soon. Enjoy some pics from the last three days. Elise cleaning up in preparation of little brothers arrival

Valentine's Spirit is Here!

Elise is continuing to talk like crazy and is saying new words everyday. A lot of her words are becoming so clear. I love the way she says ba-na-naaa, it's super cute :) I have been getting her in the Valentine's Day spirit by of course dressing her up any chance I get. Here are a few pics from the last few days. Enjoy :)

I love how even though she is totally messy she can still pose like America's Next Top Model. As Tyra says she is smiling with her eyes.
What you talking about Willis? Notice the finger prints on her forehead. She decided to play peek-a-boo during her meal.An artistic shot of Elise looking outside her window at cows and buffaloNotice the cute Valentine's Day tights What a beautiful dress :)Cheeeese! This picture has the spotlight effect, quite enjoyable :)Elise is excited to go to Nursery! Elise coloring at her table
I came across this video the other day and thought it would be fun to re-post it. This is Daniel singing John Legend's song "Ordinary People." Enjoy :)
