Our first 'bonus baby' turns 15 today!  I can hardly believe she is that old.
Time has literally flown by, before we know it she will be leaving home, all grown up and ready to take on the world.

We  have only got her one present to open this morning.  It's something she's wanted for quite a while now, and something I've always said 'NO' to.

But... she is getting old enough to be responsible with....  A MOBILE PHONE.  

We can't wait to see her face when she gets it.
I am expecting a scream and tears.  Seriously.


If I can I will get her reaction on video or a photo or two.   Later on today I will take her shopping so she can get a top up card and a phone cover or what have you.  I'm sure she will love that.

First up for today, after Bry opens her present, I will be going to the Drs to get my latest Diabetes results.  I'm not too sure how that will go.  I've been inconsistent with my diet and exercise these past 3 months.


11.21 am:  finally got the video loaded of Brylee opening her present...


ABOVE:  I think she was rather happy with her present, don't you?

AFTER that... we went to the Drs, where I found out my blood sugar levels have gone up by 5 points.  Not happy, but I know why.  So, I will get it back on track over the next 3 months and get a better reading next time.

We went down to the mall where Brylee got a top up card for her phone, and we bought a cake and came home. 

Now she's taking photos left, right and centre... and is texting key family members so she's got them on her contacts list.

If you are not text'd by her... means ya ain't gunna be added to her contacts.  Simple.

Well... Brylee has been on her phone SO MUCH today, texting and getting texts from family that it got a flat battery after half a day!
Rather funny.

It's bound to be less hectic tomorrow.

Steve, Bex and the boys came over after dinner, Steve helped set up Brylee's phone, ring tones etc, so she's all set up now.

End of Day: well it's been a lovely day!  Thanks for the lovely Birthday wishes for our girl!  Yes she is a gorgeous girl, thanks.  *smiles*

  8. this is so fun. I love the small "side eye" she gives you when she's opening it! I think 15 - 16 is about when my boys will get phones. Not sooner, although I'm sure they will want one sooner xxx

  9. Happy Birthday Brylee, I hope you have a great day.
    The phone certainly was unexpected wasnt it !!!

  10. Oh! Isn't she beautiful!!

  11. She has grown into a beautiful young woman. Happy Birthday Brylee.

  12. Yes I think she liked it :-). I am impressed that you got her to 15 without one, I think Samyson was 12 & Siobhan 10 or 11 when they got theirs, although they were really basic ones. BTW, Brylee is such a pretty looking young lady now.

  13. Happy birthday Brylee. Love her reaction to the phone awesome.
