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.
