New Year's Baby – Times Two!

New Year's Baby – Times Two!

Surely you've seen the news reporters with their bulky microphones hovering over a newborn baby proclaiming, "And here we have the first baby born in the New Year!"

I always wondered what it would be like to be in the hospital in labor —pushing, sweating and excited beyond belief to meet my new baby – only to be surrounded by cameras wanting to report the arrival.

MSNBC reports, one year ago, a couple in Gettysburg, PA had their newborn baby girl on January 1, 2007. And amazingly, they did it again this year. The couple had another daughter on January 1, 2008. There are a few things about this story that stun me. To know what they are,


First, I am always surprised that people can handle having children within one year. Kudos to them. Second, I am shocked that the two children share the same birthday, no matter what day of the year it falls on. I guess the chances are one in 365 but still it seems incredulous. And third, that the day could be New Year's Day!

I guess this family likes to ring in the new year with new life. It's pretty hard to top that so maybe we'll hear from them again in 2009.
