As we celebrate and wish Happy Birthday to our so called 'Nuclear Family' members above in the month of October in which memorable moments may be shared in photos below or found in links to other online posts, I would always also think of extended family members and friends who also have their birthdays in October. It may not be a complete list as I only add names to it as I discover the date of each over time in order to remember and wish them all a Happy October Birthday too! At random, some memorable moments with the October babies may be shared below as I recall them or can find the pics or stories to share below :
