The G family has expanded... SURPRISE!

The G family has gained a new member... A BABY GIRL!! Shareen and Craig welcomed Colbie Marie Rose on Monday, October 27 at 6:32pm! 8 pounds and 3 ounces of pure cuteness...

 

Yes, I know what you're thinking, and you're right... Colbie is perfect and Shareen looks exceptionally model-esque.

But let's back the truck up for a sec here. Shareen was in fact pregnant before giving birth to this beautiful girl...  although it may seem as though this baby came out of nowhere as Shareen didn't shove weekly updates/photos down your throat (who would do that? haha).  So let's just take a minute to oo and ahh over the mouth-dropping beauty that is my pregnant sister, shall we?






She's kind of stunning.

I have learned that not everyone on earth values photography (and documenting every second of life) as much as I do, but Shareen is very gracious about letting us invade her space and force our cameras into her life. (Craig would have also been a willing participant I'm SURE, but Shareen was flying solo on this particular occasion.)

Craig and Shareen also allowed us to document some of their hospital time when Colbie was merely hours old. She was so fresh that we didn't even get any post-bath OR awake photos. Shareen assures me that there will be plenty of opportunities for open-eyed/fluffy-haired photos in the future (and believe you me... I will take them).

So without further ado, I know you're just itching to catch a glimpse of this adorable family of three...















Like mother like daughter.




Of course I had to sneak in a picture of Colbie with her favourite Auntie (or at least the only Auntie she's met). ;)
Welcome to the family, Colbie. You're a beautiful ball of cuddly perfection, we're THRILLED you're finally here, and you are SO loved already!!
