Everything lines up for baby's birth
Nicollette Brynn Anders came into the world at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday at Community Medical Center in Missoula, Mont., meaning she was born on 11-12-13 at 14:15 in military time. Her parents say they were aware of the potential 11-12-13 birthdate, but didn't realize they might possibly have the 14:15 until about 10 minutes before Nicollette was born. Nicollette weighed 9 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.
