Two babies whose parents will have to teach them extra patience in waiting for their birthdays were born Wednesday at Sheridan Memorial Hospital.

Charles Joshua Michael Janssen was born at 5:33 pm to Ashley and Fred Janssen of Buffalo. Charles weighed 7 lbs., 15.25 oz.

Ryann Christina Leopold was born at 8:16 pm to Justine and Robert Leopold of Sheridan. Ryann weighed 7 lbs., 0 oz.

Born on Leap Day, by strict rule of the calendar the two will only get cake and presents on their actual day of birth every four years. The chance of being born on February 29? 1 in 1,461 (1/365 X 4 plus 1 for the extra day this year).
