Family is everything. That's the new Parents Inc. motto and it's something I agree with. My sister in law Sam had her second baby last week, my first nephew! How lovely. I can't wait to meet him. Sadly they're in Christchurch and we're way up here in Auckland.
The only downside to living in Auckland, for us, is that every member of our immediate families and many of our cousins, Aunts and Uncles, live in the chilly garden city. The photo of #1 and his cousin Maddy above was one of only 3 or 4 times that they've met. I can't believe she's almost two now (and a big sister!).
We miss you guys so much all the time. The boys got cards from Nana on Friday and #1 got a bit misty eyed, "I really miss Nana" he said. It makes me a wee bit teary too and I know that Nana feels the same. Please would you all think about moving here? Go on. It's much warmer (and only a teeny bit wetter) I promise. x
