CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Winter storm Harper may have brought snow, ice, and winds to the region, but she wasn’t strong enough to stop little Alianna Mae Lee from making her grand entrance.
The seven-pound, five-ounce baby girl was born at Chambersburg Hospital to proud parents Tori Stottlemyer and Zachary Lee on January 20.
The night before, as snow and ice came down, Tori Stottlemyer admits she was worried she might go into labor as she watched the road conditions. It’s a fear that’s been on her mind since the beginning of her pregnancy when she realized her daughter was due in January.
“When I initially found out my due date was January 22nd, I figured there might be a blizzard when the baby came,” she explained.
However, little Alianna waited just long enough, until early Sunday morning when roads had been plowed, to let her mom know it was time to get to the hospital. Despite being in active labor, Tori and Zachary joked that the trip to Chambersburg Hospital “wasn’t bad”.
