Des Moines baby a numerologist’s delight

DES MOINES, Iowa — A dream alignment for numerologists has come true in the delivery room of a Des Moines hospital.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/RlH4Zw ) that Laila Fitzgerald weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces when she was born. She came into the world on Thursday, which, numerically speaking, was 10/11/12. She arrived, militarily speaking, at 1314, which would be 1:14 p.m. for civilians.

So the numbers associated with her birth are 8-9-10-11-12-13-14.

Laila’s mother, 26-year-old Katie Deremiah, of Des Moines, says she had a feeling Thursday would be the day, even though the due date was Oct. 19.

Laila’s father, 26-year-old Ryan Fitzgerald, told The Register that he would buy a lottery ticket as soon as he left the hospital.
