The Leap Family

Filed under: Your Pregnancy, Relatives, Holidays

I have a friend who was born on Leap Day. I'd guess she turned ten or eleven yesterday. She is about the coolest person I know -- in fact, her nickname is "too cool". She and her husband own a whole stable full of motorcycles, are building their own house, and have started a winery. Pretty darn cool, if you ask me.

There's a family in Wisconsin, however, where such coolness seems to run in the family. Julie Austin became a teenager yesterday -- she was born February 29, 1956, making her thirteen years old -- but spent the day at the hospital awaiting the birth of her granddaughter. Sure enough, Adilyne Rejoyce showed up at 3:23am, weighing 7 pounds, 15 ounces.

Now, grandmother and granddaughter will get to celebrate their birthdays together, albeit only once every four years or so. Who knows, maybe they'll end up getting matching Harleys and ride across Australia or something. With that much coolness in one family, you'll never know what can happen.
