started on New Year's Eve at about 5:30, by 9:30 they were ten minutes
apart and when she got to the hospital she was getting really close to
delivering her baby. But the baby had other ideas. Instead of being born
on New year's Eve her little son came into the world at 5:04 a.m. on New
Year's day. This is a significant time for Kendra- it is exactly the same
time she was born. On top of that, Kendra's Great-Grandfather was born
on January 1st many years ago. Kendra says it was the best experience
of her life. She delivered her son Dylan Spencer with her mother and sister
at her side. Her little son is named after her Great-Grandfather.

on 12/31/99 @ 11:59pm and his sister Jordan on 1/1/00 @ 12:01am. Julie
and her husband decided it would be neat to give the twins different birthdates,

Conway. She was born at Margaret Mary Hospital in Batesville, Indiana.
