It’s all about Kate {Balmer Family}

It’s all about Kate. Of course it is! She’s the 3rd addition and the first baby girl for the Balmer Family. The Balmer Family that I adore soooooo much.

Long time friend, Becca is gunning for a family of 5 with husband Nathan. That’s FIVE kids… not 5 members! ;-) And we are currently at number 3. Kate Elizabeth Balmer is the newest addition to this household giving her two older brothers, Max and Luke a baby sister to dote on.

Meet Kate. At just 5 weeks old, she is a smart, strong and beautiful wee girl who has turned her Mum’s world right around.

Big brother Max loves her to bits.

Luke does too. But he’s still a little missioner, so pining him down for some cuddle time with Kate was a bit of mission in it’s own.

During my last visit to Tauranga in February, I took the top image below with Katie pie, safely cooking in Mummy’s tummy with 4 months to go before facing the world. And the image below it, we have the same location, same dress, same beautiful Balmer girls.

Just 5 months later!

When all else fails.

You’ve got an amazing and gorgeous family. Tick.
You’ve got the amazing winter sunlight at 4pm that comes beautifully filtered through the trees. Tick.
You’ve got an older brother with his big cheesy smile ready and cuddling the newest addition. Tick.

And then…

And then, you have Mr Middle Child with his adventurous nature and fast running legs who is in a park full of awesome stuff to suss out. Mr Middle Child who really doesn’t give two hoots about your pretty light. He just wants to get dirty!!!
