Oh baby!

Say hello to Sabella Sarai Gutierrez-Contreras.  The 7 lb., 8 oz. baby girl was born on Wednesday, Oct. 2.  That’s exactly 24 years after her Aunt was born, and 54 years after her Grandma was born.  That’s three generations of women in one family born on the same day!  So what are the chances of three generations sharing the same birthday?  A slim 1 in 48,627,125.

No, it wasn’t planned that way.  “I wasn’t due until Oct. 10.  I went to the doctor for a check-up on October first, and she said ‘this baby isn’t going to wait until the tenth.  I think you’ll have her either today or tomorrow,’” said Sarah Gutierrez, Sabella’s mother.

The doc was right.  Little Sabella came into the world at 11:46 a.m. the next day.  “I feel ecstatic and very blessed,” said Grandma Lourdes Pizarro, a.k.a. “Nana.”  Aunt Jessica Gutierrez said, “I was actually two weeks late, and was born on my Mom’s 30th birthday.”

Sabella’s potential birthday was topic of big discussion at Sarah’s baby shower.  “We played a game where we guessed the day she would be born,” explained Jessica.  “Of course my mom and I guessed Oct. 2.  I guessed 5 a.m., and my mom guessed 9 p.m.  I think I won,” she laughed.

Baby Sabella joins big brothers Genaro, age 5, and Josiah, 16 months.  Congratulations to the Gutierrez-Contreras family!

You can bet Oct. 2 will be one big party at the Gutierrez house from now on.

Perhaps they should have bought a lottery ticket on the lucky day!
