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 :}
