That which we call a baby by any other name would be as sweet….

A bit more than a year ago, Jennifer started working at Columbia College, where I spend the hours of 8 to 5 every day as the marketing coordinator. In just 14 months, Jennifer has gone through so many life phases, and I’ve lived vicariously through her in some ways. All that has happened since June 2008:
1. She got her first job post-graduation.
2. She married her best friend, Rob.
3. They bought their first house.
4. They got a dog, named Boone.
5. They got pregnant.!!!!

Ever since I found out she was making step #5, I’ve been pumped…and also amused at how crazy Jennifer has gone with decor, clothes, theories of motherhood…and coming up with a long list of baby names. I would say baby names have been 50 percent of our conversations since they found out they were having a girl. And I don’t mind since as of now, there are only two reasons I’m excited to be a mom myself: to take lots of photos…and to choose a name. 😉

Anyway…on August 4, Rob & Jennifer gave birth to their daughter. And despite all the preparation, the baby remained nameless for three days. 🙂

But at last… they settled on one that is so perfect…. so THEM… it is my pleasure to introduce my blog readers to Elliette Paige.

And for such a classy baby, I expected nothing less than the tres chic, kick butt room that Jennifer had ready for Elli when she came home.

Pink & black…SO darling!

Elliette wasn’t all smiles this Saturday morning. She was so hungry… and mama had to shush her tons.

While mom did her thing, I got the next shot ready. But we had an obstacle. Fisher, their cat, was jealous and not quite digging the fact that he wasn’t asked to pose. So he tried to steal the shot.

But no worries. Elliette won for cutest pose in a drawer.

And she finally fell asleep! So we did what we could while the baby slumber lasted.

Oops! She woke up again! But mama worked her magic…And then before we lost her again to the world of wakey-wakey, I thought I better act fast…every newborn has to have a shot in the official DGP newborn hat.

Ok. We were wrong. At first. And then the sensible female in her kicked in…and she gave in to the good fashion. My 2nd fave!
