Ok this is a little bit off the topic. I am still a bit jittery over this.

In 2003 my maternal grandmother passed away on, April 27th. One year later me son was born. It was one of the most heavenly anniversary gifts. I spent the last 2 weeks with my grandmother before she had passed. It gave me a wonderful reason to celebrate this day.

I just had my baby girl this September 29th, she is beautiful and perfect in everyway. I named her after her my paternal grandmother. She had passed away in 1981 and never really got to know her, but I always felt a connection. I always hope for the opprtunity to honor her by giving my daughter her name. I was so lucky I got the chance.

So the past few weeks have been great. Me and my sister were doing some family tree stuff on the internet. I came across my grandmothers info, born/died info. It said she had passed away in Septmember of 1981. I then spoke with my mother and she freaked me out telling me that she had passed away on September 29th. She still was unsure and asked my father of course, but you know men sometimes they don't remember things the same as woman, even if it is his mother. So I called my Aunt I needed to know for sure. And my mother was right, my grandmother died Sept. 29th. I am so jittery what are the odds?

My maternal grandmother died April 27th 2003, my son was born April 27th 2004.
My paternal grandmother died September 29th 1981, my daughter was born September 29th 2006.

I don't know what to make of this, in a strange way I would like to think there souls were returned to me to love an nurture.

oh my goodness that is freaky. Didn't you also have some things with dates with your loss? You should become a numerologist I swear!

It is very sweet though - it is like they are connected to your grandmas. Once maybe but twice - something is definately connected.

I don't have anything like that.

How are you doing with baby? How is your son adjusting? It can be so hard for the first to get used to having another around. My oldest still wants to give her brother back

I think it's awesome. The odds have to be amazing. My sis had her son on the annoversary of my grma's passing too. It did my mom a world of good - as she had been hit hard by loosing her mom & it finally gave her something good for that date. I think it's a blessing. I hope you & your littel ones are doing great.
