Leah Marie was born via VBAC yesterday morning! I did it!!! Apparently they do not see natural births at the hospital I birthed at very often, so we were the talk of the day

Quick stats:

11-13-08; 10:21 am
8 lbs 11 oz
21 inches

She is absolutely gorgeous! More details and pictures soon

Here are some pics. Still working on writing the birth story.
