My Leap Year baby!

Our daughter was born on Leap Year, February 29th , 44 years ago. Well, she'll be 44 this February. She was a week early and my husband tried to talk the doctor into putting February 28th on her birth certificate, but he wouldn't. I remember there was a beautiful full moon on the way to the hospital. We even heard an old song on the radio called "Tammy " which was the name we had picked out. This was before parents knew if the baby was going to be a boy or girl so I hoped this meant we'd have our baby girl. Praise God, we did and she's been a blessing (if somewhat stubborn) ever since!

My uncle was a leap year baby and for some reason he chose to always use Feb. 27th as his birthday.

Over the years, we just celebrated on whichever day closest to the 29th that was convenient.

Happy birthday to your leap year baby! So, she will be able to celebrate her birthday this year. I always think it's quite wonderful to be born on 29 February in leap year, it's so special! She must be a wonderful child!

That's a rare experience.Your daughter can't celebrate her birthday in every year. What so you do for it?

I had a cousin who was a leap year baby, February 29. Our family seems to favour certain other days. Two of my sons inlaw share a birthday. October 3, my other son in law is December 25, while my daughter inlaw is December 24...
