Tea for Two. Unique mugs decorated for a prize for my friends Stag and Doe. I’m still really in a white and green groove, and being the tea lover that I am I thought a sweet gift basket would be nice for summer. If you interested in getting your hands on some customized mugs just drop me a line <3
So I went into labor on Monday, and after we found out my little guy was breech, and getting a caesarian, little Taryn arrived. 8lbs 9onz, he is a big boy. So on the top we have me, about 30 minutes after being sewn back up and resting in recovery, on the bottom we have daddy holding his little boy, and in the middle we have Taryn at three days old getting ready to go home. What a wild week its been, mother hood is very hard but very rewarding. Its amazing how much I love him, and its only the start <3
So I am 38 weeks pregnant at time of writing, still cooking my little man. My girlfriend had her baby very recently, and she was 29 weeks. Her little man is premature by almost 3 months, but he is healthy and stable. I did this painting for her new little man Ethan. Its watercolour and acrylic on a type of cotton watercolour paper. Little Ethan is still in the NICU at MacMaster Sick Kids, but he’s doing very well and we hope to have him go home soon. I still don’t have a name for my little guy, but when I do I will do one like this for him. Only it’ll be owls <3
Get strong and healthy Ethan, I want to meet you, and I want your mommy to be able to take you home to love you, and cuddle you, and spoil you. Love you Elyse <3
So now that the new year is coming up fast, that means just one thing to me, and that is my bands annual charity event called “Rock and Blues Jam for Kids”. http://www.rocknbluesjam.com/ We started this 5 years ago to help with different causes, and then two years ago when my two year old niece was diagnosed with Cancer we decided to do this for Sick Kids Hospitals. I design the poster every year, and I also sing in the event. Now that I am a mother to be I feel even more strongly about this event. I will give more info as we get closer, but if your going to be in the Burlington area this March please try and come out to support a great cause. ALL the proceeds go to Sick Kids.
So my computer crashed a little while ago, had to reinstall Windows and now I have to find my copy of Photoshop…my actual legit copy. So thus is why I have not updated anything in a while. But here is a little gift for Christmas. Minorue all wrapped up for you to enjoy. Merry Christmas, Happy New year, and Joyous Apocalypse Tumblr!!!!!
Me at Halloween with little boo in tummy, taken by a good friend of mine <3 yes I did my own horrible make up lol^^
So…life is a many splendid thing, full of surprises and ups and downs. Dominic and I got some very scary and exciting news late September…lol…we are having a Baby. LOL!!!!! I know. So funny story. September I missed my period and I figured a was preggers cause I was gaining a bit of weight. So went to my doctor, she confirmed that I was. So I was sent to get an ultrasound to see how far I was. NOW keep in mind since moving out I have had 3 full periods and one spotty one. So needless to say I was a little shocked to find out that I was 25 weeks (approx. 6 months) pregnant. I was like…”HA good one!” but the ultrasound lady just looked at me and said she was serious. So there you go. January 12th 2013 is the expected due date. Dominic and I are still terrified and in shock, but we are elated at the same time. On top of that we did find out we are having a baby Boy. So Dominic will have a little guy to train from scratch how to play Star Craft 2. LOL so that’s pretty awesome. Last night Dom spent 30 min watching my tummy move and talking to his little man. He is scared of course, and so am I. But this will be the most amazing piece of art I will created up to this point in my life. The perfect compilation of me and Dominic in one little bundle of Joy.
So the last month and a bit has been insane for us. Our families are so excited, and have been so supportive and wonderful. Our wedding will still be next year, it’ll just be easier. So thats my huge news. I am showing a bump, so I hope to put up a picture of me soon to show off my belly lol. I am excited and scared, but what new parent isnt. So I will keep everyone posted on all updates I promise! Love you all so much!!!!
I had to put on my big girl panties today and deal with a problem. Its how you deal with your fuck up that makes you an adult. Not your age. And It makes you a better person because of it.
Look your problem in the eyes, raise your middle finger and move on. That’s what I’m doing, and MAN does it feel good.
