Miles Nathan Whitney

We finally have our baby boy here and love him to death! He has already brought so much joy to our lives. Here is his birth story...

After trying about everything to get him here on his own (even running stairs and doing squats with my mom), I ended up having to be induced. I was a little reluctant to the idea but it ended up being great. We went to the hospital at 11:00 in the morning on Friday, November 19th. They broke my water and started the pitocin at 11:30 and I was dilated 2 cm. After working through contractions until 3:00 I decided it was time to get the epidural and see what I was dilated to. My contractions were 2 to 3 minutes apart and pretty strong so I thought I'd be at about 5 cm based on my previous experience with Tessa. When the nurse checked me at 3:30 I was disappointed to hear I was only at 3 1/2 cm! We all thought at this rate it was going to be a long night. About 30 minutes later the nurse checked again and I was at 8 cm now! We were even more shocked, but very excited. 15 minutes later Dr.Terry was getting everything ready for delivery and said I was ready to deliver. At 4:34 I did two pushes during one contraction and little Miles was out! It all happened so fast and easy, it was amazing. He came out handsome and healthy. He weighed 7lbs 4 oz and 20 in long. It took us a few minutes to decide on which name we were going to use but both Nate and I just felt like he looked like Miles. I was worried we wouldn't know for awhile, but we just did. Everyone thought he looked just like Nate right away. Which made me happy cause I've always said I want a little Nate.
Tessa came to visit a few hours later and was so excited. I thought she'd want to see me first so I got all ready and excited waiting for her and she marched in, looked at me, looked around, and said "Where's my baby brother?" It was so cute! She told Nate to put him on the floor so she could see him and of course she wanted to hold him asap. It took her a minute to get adjusted to me in the hospital bed but then climbed in and got cozy with Miles. She kept calling him baby Lucas at first, but luckily that didn't last too long. She was great with him that night and couldn't wait to see him the next day. She loves him so much and is very proud to be his big sister!
We are home now and getting into a routine. Miles is a perfect little baby and so good, so far. Tessa is a big helper but a little too much at times, she means well though. It's so fun to be a family of 4 now! We love having our little girl and little boy, life couldn't be better!

Here are a few pictures Bobbie took from the hospital. If you want to see all of them go to...

ohhhh such a AMAZING story! Only 2 pushes what a DREAM!! Annie sent me a picture right after he was born, and the first thing I said was that he looked just like Nate! I love all the pictures that Bobbie has taken. Seriously though, how is it possible to look that good after having a baby?
