It seems 11/11/11 is a big deal almost everywhere.
Of course, it only happens once per century.
The parents of a baby born at Rush Hospital on this date wanted to make the birth even more significant than the birth of every baby is.
Madison Grace Square was born at 11:11 on 11/11/11/. Madison's parents asked Dr. James Purdy to schedule the birth for that time.
"I was like, it was amazing to do 11/11/11, and I asked Dr. Purdy yesterday if we could do the 11:11 time, and we're excited about it that he could," said Coranette Square, new mother.
Madison Grace weighed in at 7 pounds 6 ounces, and was 20 inches long.
