One year

Mama, Papa, moments-old Sprout & our midwife, Laura.
Exactly one year ago today, I was feeling contractions, but I thought they were just Braxton-Hicks, so I ignored them & went to bed. A couple of hours later, I was woken up by real contractions & just a few hours later, at 9:51am, Sprout was born. (The whole story is here, if you want to read it)

It's been an incredible year, full of challenges & huge joy. I feel completely different, yet somehow more me. I knew motherhood would change my life, & it's such a cliche, but I really didn't understand how much.

We had Sprout's big first birthday party on Sunday. I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Oli & I even managed to relax some of the time & there were no major mishaps. Visit my Picasa album to see the highlights.
