Going home

Guess where we (Aiden and I) are? I will give you some hints...

It took 11 hours to fly here (direct) from Japan.

It is Autumn here - and about 15 degrees celcius during the day.

There are more sheep and cows living here than people.

This country is famous for;

and this...

and of course this...

Yes! We are back in NZ for three weeks visiting my mum in her hometown - Havelock North. It was Aiden`s first time on a plane, and I was soooo nervous about him crying and annoying all the other passengers. I brought my nursing cover on board with me and wore it the whole time, just grabbing Aiden and pulling him under any time he started to whimper.

It worked a treat, and all the cabin attendants and other passengers commented on my baby`s great behavior! Yay! I guess that flying with a newborn is much easier than with a toddler, so I have newfound respect for all those mums flying with their young`uns!

Looking forward to 3 weeks of being spoilt by mum, and all the great kiwi food.
