Bundle of Joy

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a birthday on Leap Day?  Do you only get to have a birthday every 4 years?  Or do you get to choice which day to celebrate your birthday, February 28th or March 1st? If my soon-to-be niece arrives on my sister-in-law's due date....we will get to find out.  My husband's brother, wife and 2 year son Fionn, are getting ready to welcome their newest addition to their family in a couple weeks. 

When I was working on the card for my sister-in-law to send & tell her "Comhghairdeas!!", which means Congratulations in Irish, I couldn't help but giggle at the face stamp on the baby.  It was the same face that Fionn used when he would say his now famous phrase of: "Ooooh Noooo!!" when they were in the states visiting this past fall.  When I showed my husband the card, & asked if he thought it looked like a certain someone, he also said it reminded him of Fionn.  We are keeping our fingers crossed for our niece to have a unique birthday but more importantly an easy & safe arrival for baby & momma! Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
