What a difference a week makes

Last week at this time I was in labor sitting on a birth ball and breathing through each contraction. Matt was a great coach.

The two of us left for the hospital about an hour after taking this photo, 13 hours well into labor with frequent, intense contractions.

One week later, we are a family of three. My belly (most of it at least) has been replaced by our daughter.

Tomorrow we will celebrate her one week birthday. What a difference a week makes.
