If I was their father, I'd be playing the lottery for sure!

Now this is a coincidence – a baby was born in Wisconsin at 9:09am on September 9, 2009 (9/9/09) and when put on the hospital scale after being delivered by Cesarean section at Franciscan Skemp Medical Center in La Crosse shortly after birth, weighed 9lbs, 9oz.

But the coincidence doesn’t stop there – a little more than a year earlier, the newborn’s parents had the child’s sister on August 8, 2008 (8/8/08) and she weighed 8lbs, 8oz.

Chuck Berendes and his wife, Polly, are still amazed at all the 8’s and 9’s associated with the birth of their children – so much so that the names they have given them have 8 letters and 9 letters respectively.

The bigger question is;

Are they, the parents, going for a hat trick? :eek: :D

The kid weighed 4 pounds and something. The nurse was joking when she said 9lb 9 oz.
