We had our little girl, Sierra Joanne, at 6:21 pm on June 5. She was 8 lb 12 oz and 20 1/2 in, my smallest baby yet! She seems so little to me I don't know what to do with her!

I wasn't able to do any laboring in the water like I wanted, but I had to be monitored because I was a vbac and was already in active labor when I got to the hospital. Things went super fast and I'm just thrilled I got the natural, vbac that I wanted.

I can't believe how many babies have been born in the last few days, very exciting.

I'm working on getting some more pics up soon, but I do have 1 online now:

Shayna, she's gorgeous! I'm really glad you got the labor you wanted--too funny about 8 lbs 12 oz seeming small
Sammy was 10 lbs 4 oz--how big were Hunter & Hudson?

Oooh, she is so sweet. Congratulations on the successful VBAC and the beautiful baby! Enjoy!
Oh she is so adorable! Ali was 8lbs 60z when she was born so I think 8lbs 12oz is just as perfect!

Thank you!

Hunter was 10lb 3 oz and 23 1/2 in and Hudson was 9lb 3 oz and 21 3/4, it's funny how just a few inches and oz can seem so different.

We had more trouble deciding her name, I really wanted to stick with something that started with an H, but her big brother Hunter started calling her Sierra almost as soon as he knew we were pg, and we didn't even know the sex! My dh and I just knew he'd be crushed if we didn't name her that.
