ella joy (aka peanut-ella)


G and I welcomed little Ella Joy (aka Peanut-Ella) on April 21st, at 10.28am. She’s one feisty little girl and is keeping us VERY busy – hence no postings for over 2.5 weeks. Thank you so much for all your sweet comments and emails. We are all doing fine! Both G and I couldn’t be any happier. Ella is putting huge smiles on our faces. And of course, Flickr is about to explode, as is my harddrive. I must have taken thousands of pictures of her already – Ella probably thinks that her mom has a camera attached to her face at all times. You can view some of them here

I promise, I will try to post on a regular basis again very soon. In the meantime, give me another day or so, to catch my breath and get some much needed sleep. My respect goes out to all mothers in blogland. I must say, this is by far the most challenging ‘project launch’ ever! :)

Oh, and here, G and I made it on the Peoplemagazine_1cover of People Magazine. (click on image for bigger view) (Thank you Sara!!)
