Leap Day Baby
She is only going to have a birthday every four years.
But at least one child born on this Leap Day will be celebrating her birthday twice a year.
Weighing about 5 pounds and measuring close to 17 inches, Shylah Sincere Ivey was one of four babies born on Leap Day, Wednesday at Shands.
Mom, Courtney Walden, went into delivery around 10 p.m. Tuesday, and delivered Shylah at 2:10 a.m. on Wednesday.
The proud parents said they knew Leap Day was coming up -- and even though it was a week before their original due date -- they hoped they'd make it.
They said they will celebrate Shylah's birthday on March 1, but on Leap Years Shylah will get two birthdays.
The couple also have a toddler, Jeremiah.
He was born last year, also in February.
