Who's Born First?

When Laura Cirioli gave birth to twins, she never thought that Daylight Saving Time would be such a headache. Consider this:

Peter Sullivan Cirioli was dubbed "Baby A" at WakeMed Cary when he arrived early Sunday morning.

“Yes, Peter was born first, it was at 1:32 a.m.,” mother Laura Cirioli said.

Thirty-four minutes later, Peter's twin sister, Allison Raye Cirioli, known as "Baby B," made her entrance into the world.

Because of Daylight Saving Time, Allison's time of birth was 1:06 a.m., which makes her 26 minutes older than her brother even though he was born first.

So does this make the baby who is born first younger than his brother? Link (article with video clip)

We appreciate all of the time you all have spent thinking of our new family. We did not mean to ruffle any feathers just thought it was kinda neat. We love our kids and want the best for them. I am sure they will enjoy the story when they are older. As for those who thought it was a pointless waste of time to mention this exciting event, you need to get a life. Spend some more time with your family and let them know you love them instead of spending your time on the computer commenting about other people more interesting lives.

That's as silly as saying a college student who was born on February 29th is only five years old. The first one to leave the womb is the oldest, of course! Clock time is just an artificial construct anyway.

Although the time recorded may show that, in no way Allison could be older. Time never moves backwards but man has their own way of defining time... I think we should just just keep it as Peter being 34 min older...
