Am I REALLY in labor?

Amber had her checkup with her Midwife at 4:30 pm and to the surprise of everyone, she was already dilated to 8cm without realizing she was in active labor! I got the call at 5 pm and headed to their home as quickly as I could in rush hour traffic. Amber was able to relax in the warm water of the birth tub for about 45 minutes before Baby Nathan gently slipped out into the water and into the hands of his Daddy.

Congratulations to Amber, Jun and big brother Caleb on the birth of little Nathan! Born at home in the water on November 24th, 2009 at 7:15 pm. He weighed in at 7lb 14oz and is 20 inches long.

Thank you, Jun for the photos :}

Whitney and Nathan's little red Dahlia!

Daddy's little girl!

After a very intense 48 hours of labor, Dahlia Lorraine was born by cesarean section at Swedish Ballard on November 21st, 2009 at 6:46pm. She weighed 7lb 14oz, was 19.75 inches long and has adorable red hair...Hmmm, she was a little stubborn by trying to come out sunny-side up! Whitney, your strength was absolutely amazing and Nathan, your support was beautiful...The two of you are TRULY blessed!
