Well this is categorically not the post I thought I'd be writing for The Me + Mine Project this month. I fully anticipated I'd be writing a mushy post about it being the end of an era, how it was a pleasure to be sharing our final family photos as a five, how we were all looking forward to meeting a new member of the gang in the coming weeks. 

But that new member of the gang had other plans, and decided that there was no time like the present. That he would far prefer an April birthday to a May one. And that he'd really like to get in on the 'Me and Mine action' a month early. 

And so here we are, with our new line up, as a SIX!!!

We are still very much "in the newborn bubble" at the moment, and it all still feels very new. But it feels so good. We obviously still have a lot to learn about the new juggles of four children, but its already impossible to imagine life without Wylder in it. He's one lucky kid that's for sure, with three very smitten older siblings, and equally smitten parents of course. 

I can't wait to see your lovely family portraits shared, so please do add your links below. And if you are sharing your photos on Instagram too then, please make sure you're following me and use #meandmineproject as I will be sharing some of my favourites.
