Sparkles turned 7 on May 18, the day after her new brother was born. She is now part of the club. Each child shares a birth month with another family member, in fact they are each 1 day apart from their “birthday buddy.”
Rose – March 29
Mom – March 30
Baby G – May 17
Sparkles – Ma7 18

no “birthday buddy”
Don’t ask me how this happened. It’s beyond us but the kids sure do enjoy sharing a month with one another.
Sparkles prayed that her baby brother would be born on her birthday. She saw the special surprise that Sweetie received from my parents when Papi was born, an impromptu birthday at Chuck E Cheese. We do not go to Chuck E Cheese so this has been a real treat.
Sparkles started planning her celebration early on and was a little bummed when I went to the hospital on Sunday, May 16. Nonetheless, she continued to pray and her faithfulness was my cross. Baby G was born 1 day later on May 17.
