Greetings from Planet Greta…

After talking about it for months, Christine and I are very pleased to announce that today is the official launch of our first-ever Make.See.Eat.Do spinoff blog, Planet Greta. Hooray!

A photo/video blog dedicated to all things great about our daughter Greta (I know, biased much?), Planet Greta won’t feature traditional blog posts or our usual sparkling wit and wisdom, but it will be so loaded with cute-ass pictures and videos that you’ll hardly notice. Seriously, wading through all the cuteness here will take hours…even if you’re not one of her grandparents!

Planet Greta launches today!!

Christine, Greta and I on PLANET GRETA!

And best of all, since it is strictly a photo/video blog, Planet Greta will be super easy to update — something that we’ve found to be very important in the last few months! –which means you’ll be getting up-to-the-minute, front row seats to all the Greta action pretty much as it unfolds. Yay!

So, fasten your seatbelts, ready your RSS feeds and bookmarks, and click on over to http://planetgreta.wordpress.com today!

Greta’s first photoshoot

Sorry for being away for so long, but rearing a newborn baby is hard, yo. Sure, she’s cute and cuddly and smells all new and yummy and everything, but wow, I’ve never been so flipping tired in my life. Seriously, this makes 12-14 hour days on a movie set look positively restful!

Greta's first photoshoot #1

So when my brother Ryan called last week and said he wanted to come over and take some professional pics of Greta to use as possible baby shower invites for his ongoing gig at Evite, Christine and I pretty much melted on the spot. Not because the pictures would be cool to have — which they so are! — but mostly because it meant Ryan would be taking the wee one off our hands so we could, you guessed it, sleep. Yay!

As you can see, the pictures turned out great, and just like everyone else in this family, Greta is a total hambone in front of a camera. No crying, no screaming, just straight-up vamping all the way. Seriously, if Ryan had a wind machine, she’d probably stand up and start vogueing. It was insane…

And best of all, Evite actually bought one of Ryan’s Greta pics to use on their site! Cool, huh? I don’t mean to sound like a total stage parent or anything, but our cute-ass daughter is going places, baby! I’m thinking she might score her first magazine cover by the end of the month…

To see the pic Evite bought, click here, and in the meantime, enjoy the glory that is Greta’s first photoshoot!

Happy Birthday Greta Bronwyn!

Yep, it’s official, Christine and I became parents yesterday afternoon at 2:14PM with the birth of our sweet little baby girl, Greta Bronwyn. Yay!

Our due date was Sunday, the 8th, and we had already made plans with our doctor to have labor induced on Monday night at 7:30PM, giving us one more full day to prepare for her arrival, but I guess Greta had other plans!

Greta and her mommy!

Christine’s water broke at 4:15AM and despite running around like a bunch of lunatics right after it happened — yes, amigos, some things really are like the movies! — Christine, her mom, Marge, and I managed to be at the hospital and in a labor and delivery room with our official paparazzi team, Ryan and Laura, in tow well before 5:00AM. Impressive, huh?

And though we filled that room to capacity with our team of still and video cameras, iPods and laptops, I gotta say, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. So, thanks guys for helping cheer Christine on throughout the day. You guys rocked!

As you can imagine, we have hundreds of pics and videos of everything that went down yesterday afternoon, but for now, wanted to share my favorite pic with y’all. This was taken just a couple minutes after Greta was born at 2:14PM. She weighed 7.6 pounds and measured 20 1/4 inches long at birth, and we’re already completely in love with her…so, happy birthday Greta!

Oh, and you know what’s even cooler? March 9th is Barbie’s birthday as well. Hooray! All those crazy “X-Files” , “Elvis” and “Harley Davidson” Barbies in Greta’s bedroom will finally pay off!
