Life with a Newborn

Life with a newborn, is busy, stressful and tiring, but I LOVE it! I love those sweet newborn smells and being able to just hold them as much as you want. All my helpers have left and my new baby girl is now two weeks old and weighing 7 lbs 6 oz. I am certain time will now seem to be on the fast forward button and this will all seem like a distant memory. But for now the Magalogo Family without sounding super cheesy are very grateful for the safe arrival of our baby girl and Elise and Carter feel so blessed to have their sister here. Thank you to Whitney and my Mom for coming up twice to help out. They helped with Monroe, getting Elise and Carter to and from school and best of all they kept us all fed. :)  We are just trying to take each day as it comes and enjoy our new family of five. Until next time....

What's up with those duck lips?
Fun times with Whitney at labor and delivery
Wondering why Monroe was taking her sweet time to come
Daniel taking a nap, because labor is really hard for the Poppas.

Elise made Happy Birthday cards for her sister. Pretty sweet. My favorite is that in the hospital picture, I have a bun on top of my head. I guess Elise knows her Mommy's favorite hair do. :)

  1. Congratulations! You have a beautiful family :)

  2. I am soooooo glad and blessed that I was able to be there with you. It was so fun to see how excited the kids were to meet Miss Monroe. I love them all and am so lucky to be their Auntie and your sister. Love you!!!!!
