Congratulations!! Your daughter is a beautiful BABY!! What a treat that she is so young! I received my DD's referral at 5 1/2 months and our family day was when she was 8 months. What a gift you'll have to experience so many of her 'firsts' with her!

She has the same middle name as your older DD? Is she from the same SWI? How amazing would that be!
