I have to say I thought this week would be a really easy prompt, but it turns out it wasn't. I have a heap of old photos that would fit the prompt perfectly, but I'm determined not to cheat (I don't mind if you guys do) and use old photos because my whole purpose is to have a photographic record of how shes grown and changed throughout the year. So, I tried my best all week to get a play shot. We have played A LOT, but the problem with playing and an almost mobile child is that she will not sit still long enough while playing to get an in focus, non zooming photo.

We played in the jumperoo, but the obvious problem with a jumperoo is that she jumps while in it (and not normal jumping, like skitzo trampoline jumping) so its kind of hard to get a good photo. We played on the mat with lots of different toys, but that was a combination of flailing arms and weird caterpillar like manoeuvring that I'm sure is supposed to somewhat resemble crawling. We also did a lot of playing with paper because shes worked out she can rip it and incase you didn't know ripping paper is the-most-awesome-thing-ever (this week). But again it involves a lot of flailing arms and zooming limbs. Thankfully on the last day of the week I managed to get a semi still photo of her playing in the bath (ignore the cropped out hand zooming at the bottom).

- she loves to play with her ducky in the bath -

  1. My what gorgeous big eyes she has!
    I may be just having a blonde moment but I can't seem to see where the link button is???

    1. The linky went live at 6am, you were just too quick :)
      It's up now.

  2. They are so cute, my boys lived their yellow ducks as babes. I love the chilled out baby and the cats sleeping too.

    1. I think she still thinks shes doing something wrong when she plays in the bath, hence the 'I think I've just been busted' look on her face.

  3. My kids have ALWAYS been suckers for ducks - I hate them when they get water stuck and then black water comes out - UGH, so make sure you always squeeze out water after every use! xxx

  4. Mine love bath time, looks like your little miss does too!

  5. Bath time is a great play time. We have so many toys in the bath :)

    1. We've only got one so far because the baby bath is so tiny.
