ABC's Bradley Blackburn reports from New York:

We mentioned yesterday the many ways the world marked 09/09/09 — from weddings to movie releases to Apple's announcement of new iPod models.

Today, we can add one more item to that list: Deana and Patrick Orient from Grand Junction, Colorado are celebrating the birth of their son, Alexander.  Many babies will be able to claim a birthday with all nines, but Alexander is particularly special.  He was born at 9:09am on 09/09/09.  The Grand Junction Sentinel reports that the baby was born two weeks premature, but in good health. 

And Alexander's parents now have a new plan for decorating Alexander's nursery.  "Everything's going to be a 9," said his father.

Another couple, Chuck and Polly Berendes of Lacrosse, Wisc., welcomed welcomed a baby boy born on the same lucky day and time — astonishingly he weighed in at 9 pounds, 9 ounces.
