Walk Along the Canal Path

I live right by the canal path in Brighton and frequently walk/jog along it. These are some pictures I took last evening with my iPhone. I'm impressed with their quality and clarity.

A giant tree and a lonely leaf.

Facing the sun.

The Growing Belly
While I'm still on the maternity/pregnancy/baby high, I want to share this picture taking excercise I did while pregnant. I took a picture in the same t-shirt, at the same place, (almost) every week.

I'm missing pictures from the last month or so - as is obvious from the jump in the last 2 pictures. I'll have to hunt them down.

It's so much fun to see the progress. I'm sure Lil A will one day be amazed at how she grew in my belly. I hope she appreciates that we've recorded every moment of her life.

Ok, I've been horrible about maintaining my personal blog. Albeit a little late in the year - but to update regularly is this year's resolution.

Since the last time I blogged, I've been blessed with Lil A. She's beautiful (well of course I'm biased, I'm her mom). Born towards the end of January, in the wee hours of the morning at 7lbs 12oz and all of 21.25 inches tall! She sure took her time coming into this world (yep, 24hrs and 2 minutes!!)

Life has changed and how? Motherhood is a mixed bag of tricks. The first month was tricky - but it's been a beautiful ride so far. My baby's truly an angel - she sleeps through the night (yes!) Her smile melts my heart and her cooing makes me forget about everything else. And what they say is so true - you quickly forget the discomforts of initial motherhood. Smile, coo, smile, gurgle!

Welcome Lil A, mommy loves you.
