It's a girl!

Lucca Rayne Peterson was born at home, healthy as an ox.

9:06 AM, 8 lbs 10 oz, 21 inches long. Labor and birth was complication free aside from a short trip to the hospital a few hours later to get my 3rd degree tear sutured. (It didn't even feel like I tore at all!)

Now for some much needed rest!

Thank you ladies for all your love and support! I'll post my birth story as soon as I can think straight and some of the new baby brain fog has lifted!
