We Have A Baby!

Today I got a text message from Lucy Peck announcing the birth of her son Dexter Aaron Peck. He was born on July 29, at 11:45 p.m., and weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce. She said, "No epidural!"

Earlier this week, Lucy wrote about getting her membranes stripped in the hopes of speeding up labor. Although that procedure didn't work in the 24-48 hour window that it usually does, she was fairly certain that her water broke early Friday morning, so she and her husband Aaron headed to the hospital.

We'll keep you updated with photos and her birth story as we hear more.

Congrats to the new family!
