RONALD ALLEN PARMELE Feb. 29, 2012

It's a day that only comes once every four years: Leap Day. And now it's Ronald Allen Parmele's [Craig Steven, Ronald Steven, Ronald Claude, Earl Calvin, Lyman Seth, Giles, Seth, Giles, Jeremiah, Lemuel, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, John, John] birthday. Craig and Lindsay of Chicago were surprised when their son arrived at 10 a.m. on Feb. 29. "We weren’t expecting him for another 15 days or so," said Lindsay. Still, new grandmother Ruth Ann Yoder of Arcola, Ill., had predicted it: "I said, 'She is going to have it on the 29th.' " Ronald's birthday won't appear on the calendar for another four years, leaving his parents with a tough call: Which day to celebrate birthdays? More than three-fourths of Leap Day parents opt for Feb. 28 because it's the same month, according to the Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies. Others choose March 1 because that's the day the baby would have been born on otherwise. "We'll see what the consensus is," Craig said.
