Andrea, my sister and her daughter share a birthday. Kari is exactly 19 years older than Ashlee. Their birthday is February 13, one in 1976 and the other in 1995. I think that is soo cool. What is even more amazing, is that was Kari's due date. I have never met anyone that had their baby on their due date. I asked our doctor, and he said that Kari, is the only one that has happened to since he has been in practice.
My great grandpa was born on Jan 6th, and so was my grandpa (his son), my uncle (his son) me, and my 2 of my cousins (twins). Kinda strange, but it had to happen eventually with a family as big as mine!
The weird thing was that my great grandpa died at 64 on Febuary 9th, the day I was due, and my mom had me at 26 years old!
(yes, Kari and I had the same doctor for a while. No, my parents had no imagination either, at least they used it all up on my name. They just took the 't' and 'e' out of my name [Kateri] and made Kari's. They also gave us the same middle name. Rae. What is even worse is that when we each got married, we married men with the same last initials. W. So our initials are KRHW for the rest of our lives.)
That's really neat Mellie! I wish I had a sister named after me!
Remember when I told you my grandma was named Kateri, I discovered it's not Kateri, it's Katima, but I was close! We just call her grandma Katie.
