My baby girl is 10!

Today is a big day at the Scarbary house! My baby girl is turning 10 years old! I have no idea where the time has gone. It really seems like yesterday that she was born! I was always told that time flies but now I know it is so true! I thought I would share a few ( haha) pictures for a walk down memory lane on this big day!
Here is my sweet angel the day she came home from the hospital. The dress she has on was one of mine when I was a baby. I had no idea I was having a girl. My husband and I did not want to find out what we were having and wanted it to be a surprise! Boy where we ever surprised! I had that feeling all through out my pregnancy that is was another boy. I was convinced!!! No doubt in my mind. My labor with her was easy. I started having contractions about 2:00 a.m. and decided to wake the hubby up around 6:00. We took my son to the neighbors and headed to the hospital. When we got there my contractions had stopped but the kept me because I tend to deliver pretty quick. With my son, I had him in 4 hours, so my doctor was afraid I might have her in the car or something! I really had no major discomfort and after I got my epidural I felt nothing!!! My daughter was born at 10:20 a.m. My doctor that delivered her had laryngitis that day and her voice was almost completely gone. When she said "it's a Girl" I had to ask her " What?" She said it again and I said "no way!" It was one of the best surprises of my life! To go from thinking you were having another boy to having a girl was heaven!!!!! Don't get me wrong, I love little boys!!! I would have taken him in a heart beat! Her name comes from my grandmother. I absolutely adored my grandmother. I never knew her middle name was Annalee until she passed away. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use it for a little girl.

Here are a few pictures..... there were so many. It was so hard to pick just one!
