National Baklava Day
Baklava is the ancestor of strudel.
It was brought to Hungary by Turkish invaders in the 16th century.
A dessert cake of Turkey, Greece and the Middle East, created sometime before the 16th century.
Baklava consists of 30 or more sheets of phyllo dough brushed with lots of butter, and layered with finely chopped pistachios, walnuts, and/or almonds.

8. So were both of my sons. Here is a link to the March of Dimes with lots of good info:

Prematurity Campaign

In the United States, 1 in 9 babies is born prematurely.
Worldwide, 15 million babies are born too soon each year.
We’re working to address the crisis at home and abroad.
