November 18: Snuggled up

Brylee has started using her first pillow this week after getting a duvet and matching pillowcase set (thanks Aunty Emily) for her first birthday a few weekends ago. I put her to bed tonight and she looked so cute all snuggled up in her bed so I snapped a photo on my iPhone 4. I’m pretty happy with my camera on the phone but jealously eyeing up my brother’s new iPhone 4s with the 8MP camera which looks pretty awesome… Anyway, mine did a good enough job for day 320 :-). And thanks to the Camera+ app for the editing!

October 13: Afternoon with Dad

I’m on school holidays this week and spent the afternoon down at the park and beach with Brylee. We got down to the park, had a look at the ducks, then got the camera out and started taking some photos before I realised that the memory card was still at home on the couch! Pretty average but we walked back home and grabbed the card then came back to see the ducks and grab some photos. Brylee was pretty intrigued by the ducks and they got really close so we stayed there for a while then headed down to the beach. It was sunny but with a pretty cold wind so we just dipped our toes in the water then sat on a log and watched the waves for about half an hour. Before we headed home Brylee picked up a shell for her scrapbook and had a wee suck on it, ate some sand, then we walked back home. Great wee adventure on day 284 😀

 

August 26: Spiky Brylee

I know she looks a little bit like a boy here but I still think she’s cute! Her hairy has really started to grow over the last month and even though it’s still kinda thin, it’s coming along nicely 🙂 We are staying at friends for the weekend and they have a bath (which we don’t) so she was loving having a big bath complete with plenty of toys to play with. She loves water and especially her bath or the spa at the pool so will happily stay in the bath playing for 30-40 minutes at night before bed. Anyway, she’s asleep now so we can relax and enjoy what’s left of day 236 🙂

August 24: Brylee’s sign

This is the wee sign hanging on Brylee’s door and unfortunately all I’ve seen of Brylee today! I left for work before she was awake this morning then her door was shut and she was asleep again when I arrived home 12 hours later! I’ll sneak in later to say goodnight though so I can at least give my wee girl a kiss today 🙂 Thanks Aunty Emily for the sign and that’s all for day 234!

July 16: Sleeping beauty

Saturday morning is swimming lesson time which is awesome but Brylee gets so tired by the end. It only goes for half an hour then we have a wee spa after and she’s normally falling asleep in my arms as we walk out. This is her fancy new hat that Mel bought her last night and she was so cosy and warm after we left the pool that she snuggled straight into her car seat and slept solid for the next half hour. Awesome times swimming with daddy on day 197 🙂

July 6: Lil kicks

My wee girl got some new shoes from her cousin (thanks Allie and Aunty Bec) the other day and even though they don’t fit her yet, they still look sick! I figure that they are going to get ruined and spewed on soon so better remember them in photos before that happens… So here they are, enjoy and be jealous that my 8 month old daughter has cooler shoes than you on day 187! 😉

June 12: New feet, old hands

Brylee was playing with Dad today and I thought it would be cool get a shot of her little hands with his big hands. I liked this idea from January (http://dailyphotonz.com/2011/01/27/january-13-brylee-with-great-nana/) but I’d already used it so decided to try something else. I have seen this shot done before and always meant to have a go but never got around to it. As with all photos of Brylee, it took a while to get the right shot with her wriggling around but I like the result and especially the few little wrinkles in her feet that match all the wrinkles in Dad’s hand. What a good 162nd day hanging with my little girl!
