Hi
So your daughter knows you perfectly well!
The law says that a child is entitled to regular contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this of necessary.
The current contact would not be seen as adequate as it does not allow you to extend and develop your own relation with your daughter.
You should try and discuss matters with your ex using Family Mediation (www.familymediationhelpline.co.uk) but if that fails then you will need to apply to the court for a Child Arrangement order setting out the time your daughter should spend with you.

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
