Want To Know Something Freaky?

At last year's Great Strides Walk, we had just found out that we were pregnant, due on April 24, 2008.

At this year's Great Strides Walk, my sister, Rachel told me that she is pregnant, due on April 24, 2009.

How freaky is that?

I'm super stoked that I'm going to be an uncle (we have several awesome nieces and nephews on Tricia's side) and that Gwyneth will have a cousin her age (and size) that lives closer than a seven hour drive away!

Thanks!

Nate

Shari said...

That is freaky, but great news Uncle Nate and Aunt Tricia!! I have determined in my old age that numbers repeat in occurance--particularly in families. We have a number of birthdays on the 26th of the month--not always the same month!!

glad things are pretty stable for you guys right now!
