Here are the first few pictures:










And here's a little help with her name:

1. pronounced 'Bry-uh-knee'
2. it's a turn-of-the-century botanical name - the Bryony plant is a vine
3. it's a literature name - read the book or see the movie 'Atonement' by Ian McEwan
4. it's more common in the UK than in the U.S.
5. check out these 2pgs:

I love the name! My sister actually has picked out Byrony or Daveny (or both) for her girls' names for one day in the future. But your sweet one is the first one I've actually known with the name--I just love it. :)

Lol--I meant "Bryony" not "Byrony"

Oops!
