You may have seen this little cutie's face around here before. You'll likely see him a lot more too.

This is Alex - my (kind-of) nephew (does it count if I just make him call me Aunty Emma?). He is my best friend's boy and I'm a super proud (kind-of) Aunt.

I was a fresh faced twenty year old when I first met my best friend Courtney. We spent our early twenties working together, going out together, talking about boys together and dreaming and scheming for the future. 

I always knew Court would make the best mum. She is patient, so full of love and knows just what to say so that suddenly the world makes sense. 

I'm lucky to have her as a best friend and little Alex is lucky to have her as his mama.
