Meet our little Eli Promise

Happy Tuesday everyone, and yes it’s a happy one for me because I get to introduce to you our newborn son, Eli Promise…  After 28 hours of labour (I know… crazy right?), Eli was born weighing 7lbs 15oz.  He’s only 8 days old and proving to be already such a cool kid!  As our friend Femi wrote on my facebook wall: “the globe’s in need of a makeover. it needs an Eli. it certainly needs a Promise. can share your excitement, as Eli arrives.”  And he’s finally here…

Here’s just a few photos of our little guy at 3 days and 6 days!

Justin and I want to give a big shout out to the nurses and doctors at the Guelph Genereal Hospital.  They were so amazing during our stay there.  We also want to thank so many of you for your lovely comments and for loving Eli already…

new things…

NO, unfortunately our baby Eli has not come out to meet his makers.  But the due date is Saturday… so I’m still keeping the hope alive.  And for all of you “friends” out there trying to sabotage my due date with hopes for a later birth… stop it! :)

What I DID want to share with you today is a photo I took of my new twitter page design.  This may or may not be a glance into our new branding!!

If you’re a tweep and love to tweet, you should follow ME here and JUSTIN here.

Justin & his watermelon…

Ohhhhh Justin.  He’s pretty much a great, compassionate, and passionate guy all-around.  But there’s something you need to know about him.  He has a dark side when it comes to his favorite foods.  He does NOT like to share.  Most people would think that I’d be the non-sharer-of-foods but it’s actually untrue, Justin is the culprit.  Over the years, I’ve learned a few things:

1. to divide up “treats” that we buy while grocery shopping or my mouth will never see its existence.  (2 for you, 2 for me… I KNOW, it’s pathetic!)

2. if he’s given chocolates or cookies at work for “the two of us”… I probably won’t find out about it until that kind person asks me “how’d you like my cookies?”.  Then I usually have to lie to cover up his cookie-eating-eagerness.  (you’ll be glad to know that his coworkers now require him to bring some home for me… it’s a big joke!)

3. don’t mess around with HIS watermelon. If there’s any fruit that he loves more than grapes, it’s watermelon.  We bought one the other day and he ate at least 3 quarters of it.  Last night I told him that I wanted to eat the last bit so this morning before leaving for work, he kindly reminded me “Mel I hope you will eat that watermelon today…” NO PRESSURE!!!!! ha!

In his defense… I don’t always share.  I like to, most of the time, but when it comes to my “chocolate eruption” or “chocolate explosion” cake obsession, I absolutely hate sharing!  And for your information you can find this deliciousness at William’s or Boston Pizza :)

IN OTHER NEWS, our “little” watermelon is still growing, even at 39 weeks!  Yikes… how big is this boy gonna be?!  Here’s a photo of me taken by Justin a few weeks ago!

If you’ve been wondering where all the photos are, well… I’ve been taking a break until our boy is born.  Then you can expect to see a lot more of him until I start my weddings in July :)  Also, we’ve been busy with our new branding… SOON our new BLOGSITE will be up and running.  We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!

Guelph Baby Photography | Ravyn Leigh

Let me introduce you to baby Ravyn Leigh born to our lovely couple Melynda & Calvin.  I was so excited when Melynda wrote me to tell me “I successfully delivered Ravyn Leigh” on May 11th!  They wanted to take some photos of her as soon as they could, since newborns change SO quickly!

Here are a few photos from our visit with their new little girl who was only 3 days NEW!!!

We’re so happy for your new little family :)

Geoff - Okay she is TOO CUTE!May 17, 2010 - 11:48 pm
