She Turns One

What do

Vlad the Impaler,

Margaret Mitchell,

Milton Bradley,

and Bobby Bowden have in common?

Give up?

They were all born on November 7th.

And what historical events took place on the 7th day of the 11th month of the year?

Well on this date...

- in 1731, Ben Franklin opened the first US library in Philadelphia.

- in 1793, the Louvre in Paris, opened.

- in 1864, Abraham Lincoln is elected to his second presidential term.

- in 1889, Montana is admitted as a state.

- in 1910, women cast their vote for the first time in Washington State.

- in 1944, the last German troops at Walcheren surrenders.

- in 1950, 1st jet-plane battle ever, in Korean War.

- in 1965, "Days of Our Lives" premieres on TV.

But none of this means as much to me, as my niece being born on this date, in 2010.

And last week she enjoyed her cake to the fullest.

I think she rather likes the date, too.

And since my uterus is retired...I really cherish holding this little bundle of baby, and then handing her off to her mother.

Happy 1st Birthday!
