Chinese/Japanese Gardens: Photography Walk

Back in November, Addy, Kuku and myself ventured out with my photography group to the Chinese/Japanese Gardens. Here are my pictures from the outing!

A Trip to the Zoo

Zoo-1Shortly after New Years our family took an adventure to the Singapore Zoo. We only spent a few hours, but we had a nice time. Addy enjoyed being out and about and stayed awake for part of the time. The zoo exhibited the animals very well and it was a great place to take photos.

Addy: 3 Months

It’s hard to believe that our little girl is 3 months old already. Addy is growing by leaps and bounds and looks like a totally different little girl than a month ago. She enjoys playing on her play mat with her toys, sitting in her swing watching me cook(we call this her recliner), listening to stories, playing with Dad when he gets home from work, bath time and taking walks along the river. She loves many of her new toys from Christmas and currently reaches out and grabs on to them. Most toys are headed straight to her mouth for a taste. Her favorite toys are her snail and Elfie.

Here are the 3 month pictures that I took this last week. I hope you enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from our family to yours! Our New Years Eve was extremely low key. We had our family friend Colin over for dinner and dessert and I headed to bed around 10. I knew Addy was going to wake up in the night, so I knew to get as much sleep as I could! She ended up waking at 3 AM to eat and 4:30 for a quick rock back to sleep.

We are  New Years day relaxing as a family around the house and putting away Christmas decorations. Taylor is off for the next few days which is always nice and we hope to get a fun outing in that I can share with everyone in the next few weeks!

At the New Year, I always like to look back at the previous year and reflect. We had a very exciting 2014 that’s for sure. We  had many visitors, a variety of travel opportunities, and of course, the birth of our daughter Adelaide. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in 2015, it’s sure to be exciting!

Here are my favorite photos from the year. It was fun to look back and see how my photography improved. I did go back and re-edit some pictures which improved them even more!(They are in no particular order!)
