Just seems funny to think I should have had my 2nd daughter on this day last year, :) I remember last year, whenever we would go out around this time, people would ask how old she was, then give me a funny look when I would say 7 wks... but she still looked like a newborn, only weighing in at around 7 lbs... so then I'd have to explain to them that she wasn't even due yet.
But now, here she is, alreay 13 1/2 months already, time sure flies!! I have to count my blessing though, because she's been as healthy as could be, and sooo sweet!

I remember that too, last July. I remember thinking "He's a Real Boy now!" (yeah, my little Pinocchio![:I]) July 24 will always be a special day for me.

Happy Due Date Day. [8D]
