May 2017

  • We travelled south to introduce Fox to friends and family. A couple of nights in Alexandra; one with dear friends and their beautiful girls. A day with Grandad Graham.
  • A couple of nights at my family home; soaking up all the beauty and familiarity before it was to be packed up. Quality time with Poppa Don and Joh.
  • Then on to Gore to spend time with Grandma Ann and Grandad Kevin.
  • A night on top of Scroggs Hill with Great Nana and Great Pop, and the extended family.
  • Fox began rolling much to his delight.
  • Our friends welcomed their sweet baby girl Emma. 
  • Gastro hit the house. Poor Mae was miserable. 

April 2017

  • We went to Auckland Zoo for the day with Aunty Emma and Uncle Roman.
  • Fox really 'woke up' up from those drowsy newborn days. Alert, smiley and happy.
  • We got stuck into the backyard. Creating a bark chip area under the clothesline to rectify the mud problem. We got a bit more painting done on the fence too. 
  • There was of course some sewing and knitting on the go.
  • We spent a most wonderful and magical Easter weekend away at Mathesons Bay, Leigh. A relaxed time in the teeny Plum Tree Cottage. Lots of ocean swims, an Easter Egg Hunt and precious time spent with Mary.
  • Mae got a 'big kid' mattress.
