the only time i see my extended family is at christmas.
i just saw my niece. cant remember how old she is. about 4. but last time i saw her, she was like "maaa maaa mummy baaab baa etc"
now she can hold a proper conversation, read...
shes an actual human being.
i just had a conversation with her to this effect. pretty incredible, to me.
tomorrow i meet my new 6 month old nephew. awesome stuff.
