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)
Carter taking a snooze in his crib while wearing his "I'm the little brother t-shirt"
Elise, with Poppa's supervision, holding Carter for the first timeElise sporting her "I'm the new big sister t-shirt"
Carter chillin in Grammy's arms
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!

  1. Wow! so fun! That is awesome that you won some prizes, yay! Good to hear you are recovering well and that you had some help. How close are the babies? Mine are 19 mo apart and it was a little hard to adjust for me. If you ever need someone to talk to , call me! Or if you just need to mommy vent, I'm a good listener! Carter is so cute! Yay for being a family of 4! It is so fun, especially to have one of each!!

    BTW, you look great!!
