Julie has a close date to what Shanna had 4 years ago. Shanna 9-24; Julie 9-27. At one point by ultrasound, Daniel was so large, the due date was changed to 9-11. But just because he was the size of an average 40 week newborn, doesn't make him a 40 week newborn. His lungs were as developed as a 34 week baby so he had difficulty clearing the fluid out of them. Plus he could not suckle without this oxygen levels falling dangerously low so he had to be tube fed. It was a scary week but he turned out just fine. If Julie is following Shanna, maybe her baby will be born tomorrow but we all hope it will stay in there a while longer.
Daniel loves all things Star Wars so a lot of his presents reflected that. Shanna had a small gathering of his aunts and uncles, cousins, and grandparents later in the day. He requested purple cupcakes. So hard to wait to open presents! We couldn't find a Star Wars costume so got him a Power Ranger one (a different color than last years) but Oliver immediately took a shine to it. They want the same stuff.
For the past week, I have been steadily working on my crochet project for Shanna's shower for Julie. Finally finished today. Now to make a diaper cake....
