UHS Leap Year welcomed with births of a baby girl and boy!
Sophia Reily weighed in at seven pounds, .31 ounces when she arrived at UHS Wilson Medical Center at 10:16 a.m. on Leap Day, Saturday, Feb. 29.
Her parents, Greg and Stephanie, of Greene, have promised her a birthday party every year, even though she’ll technically have a birth date only once every four years.
“We were a little worried about how we were going to celebrate, but we’ve decided to make it the last day of February each year, whether that’s the 28th or 29th,” Stephanie said.
Also at UHS, seven-pound, 20-inch Josiah entered the world at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital at 12:02 a.m. on Feb. 29.
He is the son of Michael and Joyce, who live in New Berlin.
Feb. 29, also known as Leap Day or Leap Year Day, is a date added to most calendar years that are divisible by four, such as 2016, 2020 and 2024.
