The Lucky Number 22

Well, if you know me at all, then you would know that I am a numbers person. All dates are important to me and I really favor even numbers. My house number is even (2226), Seth and I's birthdays are on even days (28th and 26th). We were even born in an even year (1980). So, I also wanted my girl's birthday's on even days. Don't think I am Rainman or anything...I just like numbers! :) So, when I was due with Jillian on June 30th, I got to schedule my c-section and opted for June 22. Then I got pregnant with Jules. I was due April 28th and I realized that my two girls were going to be 22 months apart! Well, I had no choice but to have Jules on April 22nd. So, to sum up my long explanation...my girls are 22 months apart and are both born on the 22nd! I guess some might think I am a freak...but someone needs to find the silver lining to having c-sections! :) And it is going to be really amazing if I can possible plan a 3rd baby (in the future...not now!!!) to be born on the 22nd. What skill I would have then! :)

And now to my point...today is February 22nd. Jules is 22 months old today! That makes her the EXACT same age that Jillian was when Jules was born! I just can't even believe that Jillian was that young when we had another baby! She seemed so much older than Jules and in some ways, she was. She was already in a queen bed (and had been since 18 months), and I think we just treated her older than we do our Jules! We don't call her Baby Jules for nothing! So, I wanted to show you a little flashback of my girl Jillian at 22 months and on the day that her sister was born.


Jillian at the hospital waiting to meet her Baby Sister.
Look how much hair she had!!!


Peeking in the window to see Jules

The girl in action!



And here is Jules at 22 months! Just as wild and crazy as ever...and already fully into her terrible twos! Oh lucky me!!!


Sweet girls!
I sure hope their future soccer/softball/volleyball/basketball jerseys are #22!!!

George-Anna was born on 2.22 (yes her bday was yesterday!) and if you add Eric's day the 10th plus mine the 12th you get 22....if you take our months and divide them...eric August (8) and mine April ( I am sure you remember, 4) you get two her month...I TOO am a numbers lady...I think you will recall us always looking at the clock on 926 and 412... so I won't bore you with evelyn's birthday and the significance behind that...but I HEART you and your number's directed MIND!

I am a friend of Elizabeth's and had to click on this post! I am also a 22 girl! My husband and I met and fell in love on the 22nd, while we were 22 and I lived in apt. 22C in Nashville. We had to settle for getting married on the 11th though. My due date with our first daughter was the 28th and I was convinced she would be born on the 22nd, but she waited for the 24th...I even have random 22 decorations in our house!

My lucky number is #22 and its been popping up everywhere and I told my mom and she bought Doreen Virtue's book of Angel Numbers and it tells you all about different numbers 0~999. It shows you what's coming to your life if you see the same number a lot through the day or weeks.

I don't know you and not sure if you are still posting but have been trying to figure out what the #22 means in my life. It has always been there. Addresses phone #s, birthdays, checks, ages, everything lately.

Has always been there and always seemed to indicate good things but thought I was the only one who felt this. Glad to know you have this special # in your life too.
I may never find out why it's there but am glad it is.

life. Just like with the above diet tips, you want to make sure that each fitness tip you incorporate into your routine

by placing a lampshade on his head and standing on a dresser so he looks like a lamp.
There are a few selections of these to choose from on this site too.

You will find the most updated news being uploaded or published in blogs
and celeb news sites. Who does not want to know what is happening
in our favorite celebrity''. As a consequence it can be contended the media is directing
many persons astray moving away from what should be its aim of
presenting discerning news and analytic thinking of pressing topics for this celebrity frippery.
