Ark. baby born 9-9-09 has sibling born on 8-8-08

At least it will be easy to remember their birthdays. An Arkansas couple welcomed a new baby girl into their lives Wednesday ­ giving her the birthdate of 9-9-09. Andy and Alison Miller's newest daughter Molly Reid will come home to sister Campbell, who was born on August 8, 2008, or 8-8-08.

The coincidences don't stop there. Molly Reid has nine letters to her name, while Campbell has eight.

The Millers don't appear poised to go for a third child on 10-10-10.

Alison Miller tells Rogers, Ark. television station KHOG that she and her husband are going to take a rest.
