Carly Jane Anderson was born on March 27th at 1:19 in the morning. I went to the hospital about 9:00 and four hours later had a sweet little baby girl. I called the hospital at about 5:00 that night thinking I should come in, but was told that I was probably just dehydrated and to drink some water. I drank some water, but surprisingly drinking a lot of water does not stop contractions or labour. We took Maria over to the hospital with us not knowing what else to do and so she was present for the entire thing. Luckily it was late and she slept through everything. I don't know how, but was thankful that she slept so sound because she could have awakened to a nightmare. Instead she woke up to a new baby sister and a clean and happy mother. Carly is a cute little girl. She was eleven days early and still weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces and was 19 inches long. The following day she had passport pictures taken and now we wait so that we can get her back home to Turkey. We are excited to be able to show her off.
