Bump at 17 weeks and gender reveal ;)

As some of you know Lola is going to be a big sister in June. We were really happy to find out we were pregnant as we wanted Lola to have a sibling close in age. So when it came to the first scan I told Julian I was ok to go alone as it was just going to be a formality where I would be told the due date and really there was no point for Julian to be taking a day off.

Things you (probably) did not know about New Zealand - part 1

I often get asked what it is like to live in NZ and since it is impossible to answer in one sentence I thought I would create a series of posts devoted to some things about NZ that you (probably) did not know about. It will not be something you can find in travel guides, etc. Just my personal observations from the last 12 years...

Long forgotten holiday

What can I say? Life has been pretty busy lately. Plus Lola entered a stage where she climbs on EVERYTHING and wants to touch EVERYTHING so my days are spent following her and each day where we did not have to go the emergency room I deem as success...

First dip in the ocean

I think I must have set some new record in procrastination as the photos you are about to see are from the first week of February...I seriously have no idea how people who work full-time, have more than one child and run a household manage to blog even a couple times a week (not to mention those machines who blog EVERY day).

Rotorua trip

I always promised myself that when I have a child I would still do things I did when I was childless, like for example travelling. It is not always easy, but step by step we started taking little trips with our little munchkin. Lola's first trip took place when she was 7 weeks old. We went to visit her grandmother in Rotorua, which is about 3-4 hours from Auckland (definitely more like four if you are travelling with a child).
