Residents ring in 11/12/13 with weddings, babies
YUKON, Okla. – You may have noticed that chapels and emergency rooms were filled Tuesday but it was no accident.
In fact, many people chose Tuesday, which was 11/12/13 on the calendar, to get married or to give birth.
Some say it is simply superstitious.
However, experts say it’s a sequential pattern that only comes around 12 times this century.
Wrapped in a blanket and wearing a little owl knit cap, Cooper Theodore Roberts’ parents are able to look upon their new bundle of joy.
Teddy came into the world at 7:23 a.m. on 11/12/13 at the Integris Canadian Valley Hospital in Yukon.
Jay Roberts said, “Seven pounds, 13 ounces, 20 inches long. He’s a big little boy, huh.”
Crystal and Jay Roberts already have a 6-year-old boy named Peyton.
Following his birth, they were told they could not conceive again.
After six years of infertility, waves of emotions and dead end turns, the Roberts got pregnant.
Crystal Roberts said, “He’s just so precious isn’t he?”
Originally, the Roberts wanted to schedule their C-section on Crystal’s birthday 11/11/13.
When that didn’t work, they settled for 11/12/13, not realizing the sequential pattern until later.
Jay said, “Whenever we walked out of the office, we were like, you know what his birthday is going to be? 11/12/13, which is pretty cool.”
At 7:23 a.m., Teddy was born, greeted by his parents with forehead kisses, love struck eyes, hand holding and even his little bitty footprints stamped onto his dad’s forearm.
When asked what they love about their son, the answer was believable, followed by chuckles.
Crystal said, “He sleeps.”
However, it goes much deeper than that.
The Roberts said Teddy being born on 11/12/13 is nothing short of a miracle.
Crystal said, “He’s a gift from God. There’s nothing else you can love more than just all of him.”
The Roberts hope to be home with baby Teddy by Thursday.
In case you have a big event to plan, the next sequential date is 12/13/14.
