Life's a Beach!

One of the many bonuses of being back in Wellywood is having all these cool beaches just a hop, skip & throw away from your front door. Wellington has also been experiencing some pretty warm weather (unbelieveable!) so we've been trying to get out as much as possible to make the most of sun & sand.

Seatoun beach is just a short walk from the new HQ so we spend many hot afternoons down there - Micah chasing the waves, Isla eating the rocks & the rest of us lazing on the shore.

Another bonus is having Aunty Sachi, Uncle Mareko & cuzzy Micah around... more people to enjoy the sights with! Isla LOVES her cousin Micah and follows him everywhere. She is learning some valuable lessons from him - like the pecking order of him being older & therefore the boss! Am sure Isla will only be more than happy to pass this life lesson on to the next addition that comes along ;)

Happy New Year!

Moemoe time with Dadda

If I do this, will you give me more food?

No? Ok, how 'bout I smile real cheesy?

Spying on the neighbours with Nana

It's been 3 months since our last update (whoops!) and what a 3 months it has been! Let's see... we finally moved out of Ontario St after living there approx 20 years, Aunty Sachi, Uncle Mareko & Micah returned home from Sydney (yay!), Mama & Dadda went for a wedding in Raro and I got to spend some time with Aunty Molly & Nana in Auckland, my first Christmas & New Year celebrations, Dadda got a new job... it's been busy, busy, busy!
On a more personal note, Isla now has 4 teeth and obviously inherited her eating genes from her Dadda (ie: she gobbles everything put in front of her!). Still crawling around like a race car but is attempting to take a few steps & stand on her own thanks to a cool walker that Micah got her for Christmas.

We're really lucky to have Aunty Sachi back cos she is genius with the camera... we can finally get some decent shots of Isla!
