This past month has been all about settling into our new normal as a family of six. Six? My goodness that just sounds crazy. But here we are, all six of us, in all our bank holiday glory. Aren't those two bank holiday weekends just the best bit of May. I feel like they have been so well timed for us this year; giving us a little more family time in the work-life balance as we find our feet with a newborn in the house again. 

It's been a lovely month. We've enjoyed the newborn bubble and in so many ways it's flown by in a haze of cuddles and night feeds and every single one of us learning new things. But it all honesty aside from the novelty and excitement of Wylder which is yet to wear off for any of us, it's been a pretty normal kind of month really. Barbecues on sunny weekends, juggling the children' busy social schedules, little adventures together.

But as you read this we are actually off on our first BIG adventure as a six. We're currently sunning ourselves in Ibiza. As I'm writing this to schedule for while we're away, I hope it doesn't tempt fate to say that we bravely took four children on a plane and lived to tell the tale. There aren't many 5 week olds who can boast a stamp in their passport, but our five week old does. It's not every day that your uncle, my baby brother, decides to get married in Ibiza; and that simply isn't something you miss... however terrifying the prospect of travelling with four little people might be.
