DAY 12 - May Challenge



I miss lots of things (my mum, sister, my dad...) but most of all I miss seeing my beautiful niece Caitlin growing up. She will be 3 years old in July, I'm hoping to get back to the UK for a quick visit to see her (and the rest of my family/friends of course) and be there for her birthday.

We do Skype quite a lot but Caitlin is either asleep, eating or watching Peppa Pig! Peppa Pig is more important than Aunty Row :(

She is a little angel and I was so proud when my sister asked me to be her godmother. She is beautiful, clever, demanding and bossy (like her mum) and she was my flower girl at my wedding last year.

She loves her uncle Rich and copies everything he does, its very funny. She sounds so cute when she says words like 'airplane' and 'ice cream'. 

Here are a few pics of my beautiful niece:

My illustration today is based on me being her 'fairy godmother':

  10. I have 5 little nephews, and now, finally, a niece. There is something so infinitely sweet about her. My sister and I take turns cuddling her as Aunts are supposed to do. I'm sure her mom isn't wild about how we spoil her, but that's our job!
