Jonny Peace is 4 months old already. He really enjoyed meeting his Kiwi grandparents a few weeks ago and Mama enjoyed being able to sit down for a cup of tea every day during his bath time. I’ve enjoyed the ups and downs of living away from home for 6 years, but am starting to feel the pull to be near family now that I have a baby. It doesn’t look like we’ll be moving back there any time soon, but we are all really looking forward to a visit later this week and introducing him to his American fan club. Come to think of it, Jonny has quite a few people eager to meet him on most continents!


We have had a busy month. My parents came for a visit. It was great for Jonny to meet them and vice versa. They certainly enjoyed doting on him as well as helping with washing the dishes and washing the baby (but not together).

I turned 42.

Term 1 has come to an end. I am thoroughly enjoying the class.

This week we are heading to San Diego for just under 2 weeks. Jonny will get to meet his American rellies as well as find out all about international travel (maybe his parents will find out something new about international travel!). We look forward to celebrating with Marie’s sister Spring as she and Patrick get married.
