{phfr}: The Before and After Edition

The waiting is finally over and the baby is here.  Now I am battling some serious exhaustion, but I know we'll make it through.   Whether or not my household will make it through is an entirely separate question. 

I only have two pictures today . . . . it's even more than I could really manage, but I just felt like I wanted to post them.

I went from this  . . . . .

I had to snap one final belly picture the night of my induction. 

To this little bundle (or not so little, as it turned out) in about 10 hours.
They don't call it the miracle of birth for nothing!
{pretty, happy}

Our pretty little girl.  Who we were sure was a boy.  And if that's the kind of surprise that awaits me in this life, I'll take it every time.

Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter and enjoy the {pretty, happy, funny, real} parts of life. 

I'll be sure to share Baby's arrival story soon, but for now . . . a nap.
