After almost 18 months of continuous pregnancy, we are finally parents who have a child. Last year I didn't leave the hospital with my baby, this year I'm the happiest mother ever. Our family is complete.

Contractions started to get painful around 5 cm after my water broke. I "pole danced" around to music to distract myself.
Our hospital performs Skin to Skin as soon as baby is born. He was IMMEDIATELY put to my chest for a couple hours, then Ben had his turn.
Whit had three hospital cuffs for security reasons. Poor fellow :(
First family photo, thanks to Waledah- one of the incredible midwives who has helped us on this journey.
My boys sleeping in the hospital. They are my world.
I made this special decal for his newborn kimono shirts to ensure we left the hospital with the right baby!
My mom was waiting on our steps when we came home. She finally meets him!
Mom's reaction to hearing that we named him after her father!
Ben covered our living room table with flowers, balloons, and candy for us!
Happy Birthday, Whit.
