This is Spookymama's husband, I guess you can call me Spookydaddy. Here's a quick update! We transferred to the hospital this evening around 7pm and at 8:21pm our daughter made her grand entrance! Spooky got her VBAC and she did it with NO DRUGS at all! Lilah Winter is 8lbs 3oz, 20 inches long and perfect in every way. She's happily feeding off mama and drifting in and out of sleep.

Spooky was 41w 5d so we were definitely ready for her to arrive. We'll update later with a more full birth story and pics but welcome Lilah! We're so, so glad you're here!

Congratulations!

What's spooky is that we almost named our new DD Lila, and that we were googling like crazy searching for a middle name which would mean "winter storm!"
