Glencoe mom gives birth on her birthday twice

GLENCOE (AP) — A Glencoe woman who has given birth to both her sons on her birthday plans to throw one big birthday party next year.

Vicki Lasseter, who was born on Dec. 11, gave birth to Micah Lance Lasseter Monday. Lasseter’s firstborn, Lucas Stone Lasseter, was born on the same date in 2004. Both boys were due on Dec. 18 and both weighed 8 lbs. and 6 oz. at birth.

“I got up to tell (Lucas) happy birthday, and as soon as I said it, my water broke,” Lasseter said. “I thought, ‘No way this is going to happen twice.’ Everyone said (Micah) was going to come the same day.”

Vicki Lasseter knew she might be in the hospital around Lucas’ birthday, so they couldn’t plan a party. Friends had been bringing gifts by, but he still hasn’t opened the presents from his parents. “He’s been opening gifts since Saturday,” Vicki said. “He’s having a whole week of a birthday.”
