When you're expecting a baby, you can't help but wonder about the numbers. No, I'm not talking about the cost of diapers, I'm talking about the date and time of your baby's birth. Will she be born on the 7th (your lucky number)? At 2:12 in the afternoon (your area code)? All you can do is guess.
Like new mom Katie Deremiah of Iowa. Even though her due date was 10/19/12, she had a feeling she would go into labor yesterday, on 10/11/12. She was right. But she had no idea how numerically significant her daughter's birthdate and time would turn out to be!
Baby Laila Fitzgerald was born weighing 8 pounds, 9 ounces -- on 10/11/12 -- at 13:14 (military time). Are you getting this?!
WHOA. What are the odds?!

Laila's dad, Ryan Fitzgerald, told reporters he was going straight from the hospital to buy a lottery ticket, and I can't say I blame him. Seriously, this incredibly crazy birthday must mean something. Something about Laila's destiny, perhaps? I feel like someone could make a sci-fi movie based on her birthday alone -- clearly she's going to grow up to save mankind or discover the Matrix or something.
Whatever it means, I hope a winning lotto ticket for Mom & Dad is part of the deal!
Did the date and time of your baby's birth have any special significance for you?
