Veronica was born at 12:24 a.m. on March 1, 2004 . . . 24 minutes after leap day (Feb 29). In hindsight it would have been kind of neat to have a unique birthday like that, but she'll probably be happier to have a "real" b-day every year.

Oh great ! :LOL I know all of my children where born between midnight and 6am but as to the exact time my memory is failing me and my oldest is only 5.

I think dd#1 was 5:45 labor was about 5 hours
dd#2 was 5:57 just looked in her baby book. somewhere around 5 hours
dd#3 3am. That one I do remember as she only 11 weeks old. labor was 2 hours.

I love night births as the world seems to quite and peaceful, it also seems more private for some reason.
