My cousin Elliott

I have a  cousin called Elliott Bingham. Elliott lives far away in Texas. He has one sister and 4 brothers.  He is number 4 in his family, just like me. This is the only time I have got to meet and hang out with Elliott. It was January 2010. I was 14 mths old and Elliott was 9mths old. There is only 5 mths between us.
Elliott's Mum and my Dad are brother and sister.

I love Elliott!

As we have been getting older, Elliott has been writing to me and I have written back. Last time Oma and Pop went to visit my cousin's I sent Elliott some "stuff and he loved it". (I love Jonty's own words here).

Some of Elliott's latest letters have been so cute.

He sent Jonty a Valentine's card, and a letter saying that he loved him and that for "show and tell" at school he told the class all about his cousin Jonty.

Jonty has a pin board in his room that he keeps up all of Elliott's letters.

Penny sent me a few photos of Elliott taken recently. They are growing up so much and I wish they could grow up closer together as they are so close in age and would get on really well.

Simon and Jonty made Elliott a video.

We so very much want to go over to America and visit the Binghams sometime in the future but with a family of seven, it will be very expensive. We will just have to keep saving.
