    Smile Fathers Day

    As this will be my fiance's first fathers day, I'd like to get him or make him something special/meaningful.

    So, get your creative juices flowing and hit me with some ideas!!

    Cheers!

    It might be cheesy, but I love the pictures where the babies/kids are holding the huge letters D.A.D and put together as 3 different pictures in a row to spell it out. (trying to find a link to show what I mean)

    eta I just saw how old your baby is, so maybe not! But you could put her in a white onsie and draw/sew/iron on the letters D and A onto two different ones, and then take photos of her to spell out Dad.

    Stealing that, might take both girls to a photographer and get them done professionally.

    Haha yep might be pushing it at 4 weeks old! LOVE the idea though. Might have to 'tweek' it to suit.

    Oh, and cheesy is good!

    Perhaps you could get wooden letters to spell out DAD and have them in the picture with her?

    I know your baby is too young but this is what I mean...

    What about the iron on clothes idea.. or like Bell said, just having her lying next to the big letters like newborn shots with a prop?

    Thats what I was thinking. We live in a small country town though so hopefully I can get the letters delivered relatively quickly.
