Twins Born in Different Decades

Every local newspaper announces the first baby born in the new year, but the story is even bigger in Carmel, Indiana. Dawn Gilliam and Jason Tello weren't expecting their twins to arrive for another seven weeks, but children have a way of stepping on your holiday plans. The twins were born on different days, in different years, and even in a different decade.

Joslyn Grace Guilen Tello was born at 11:37 p.m. on December 31, 2019 at Ascension St. Vincent Carmel and her twin brother, Jaxon DeWayne Mills Tello, was born at 12:07 a.m. on January 1, 2020.

Not only were their birthdays unique, but they were the last baby born in 2019 and the first baby born in 2020 for the hospital.

The babies are each four pounds and change, and are doing well according to the hospital. When they are older, they can one-up each other in ways most twins cannot. Joslyn will never let Jaxon forget that she is the elder twin, and Jaxon will never let Joslyn forget that he was a New Year Baby while she was not.  -via Mental Floss

Treating the numbers that we label years with as "technical" numbers is a losing game. It doesn't work like counting money. Maybe it would if there were ever a year zero, which there wasn't. If a year is labeled as a "twenty," like 2020, it will always be considered one of "the twenties."
