Four!

Yesterday Sebastian turned four! Four! I cannot quite believe it. It only feels like yesterday when he was plucked from my tummy by an emergency c-section after giving us a bit of a scare and has been making his presence felt ever since! Sebby is still my chilled-out boy, although he is more than capable of holding his own against his brothers and sisters and is doing brilliantly at pre-school. Sebastian is dinosaur mad and for his birthday we had… Continue Reading “Four!”
