The story of Jenni Sommerness’ birth is a wild one.
It started on Christmas Eve. Her mom went into labor early, in the seventh month of her pregnancy.
Jenni, of Breezy Point, gets the blessings and the drawbacks of being born on Christmas Day.
Her mother had gone into labor a month earlier, too, but doctors were able to stop the labor.
Jenni said that, as her dad tells the story, they went into the hospital in Grand Rapids on Dec. 24. Her dad claims (rather excitedly) that they were either in, or next to, the same room where Judy Garland was born.
