LA CROSSE, Wis. - No doubt about it, the nines have it. Chuck Berendes of La Crosse said he will never forget the birthday of this third child, born Wednesday on the ninth day of the nine month in the year 2009.

 

Nor will Berendes and his wife, Polly, forget Henry Michael's arrival time — at 9:09 a.m. by Cesarean section at Franciscan Skemp Medical Center in La Crosse.

 

But they got the biggest laugh when the newborn was placed on the delivery room scale following his birth.

 

Berendes said it was metric scale so the doctor did the math in his head, but to make sure, he had the nurse also do the conversion.

 

Berendes said they broke into laughter when the nurse told them Henry weighed 9 pounds, 9 ounces.
