What A Difference A Week Makes!!

In just a week, I have gone from an incredibly miserable pregnant lady to a relatively normal person who can go out in public and actually do things again.  In just a week, we have gone from having the perfect car for us to needing a new one.  In just a week, we have gone from being unable to field a curling team to now having our own.  It's amazing what a week can do.

One week ago today, we welcomed into this world...

18" long
...and everything has changed!

The boys absolutely love their new baby brother (even Jonathan, who didn't want him to come out...and whose "Bradley" sounds a lot like "brownie" - very cute).  I'm also surprised at how quickly the routine is starting to come back to me.  My mom was able to come down on Wednesday the 23rd so she has been here since we got home from the hospital.  It was really nice as she did laundry, cooked meals and cleaned the bathroom (yay!).  We had a crazy house full of people last night but now the people are gone and life must return to normal.  Things seem to be settling into a routine, which is fantastic but only time will tell just how it all goes.  So, in case you're interested, here are a few photos from the last week.

Brand new baby getting checked over.

Checking out Mom.

It sure isn't all fun and games.

Home again, home again, jiggity jig.

Sweet little sleeping boy.

Dad had to buy me my very first LEGO mini-figure.

The first bath at least all the screaming made me sleep well.

So, there you go.  That is the difference a week makes.

Until next time...
