MANSFIELD(CBSDFW.COM) – Jaxon Yzaguirre was born Friday, but not just any Friday.  He was born on on 5-15-15 at 15:15pm (yes, we had to use military time to make that work) during Palindrome Week.

Jaxon is the son of Aaron and Analbertha Yzaguirre of Red Oak. His older sister Jasmine, 11, and brother, Jacob, 6, are excited to meet Jaxon for the first time.

Jaxon Yzaguirre weighed in at 9 pounds, 12 ounces, and measures 21 inches.

The new parents received a new book, to help Jaxon get a head start on reading as part of the Read to Me program. All babies born at Methodist Mansfield receive a new baby book provided by the Methodist Mansfield, Mansfield Sunrise Rotary and Mansfield Independent School District to help them get a head start on reading.

Every date this week is symmetrical and reads the same backward as forward.

The date will be a palindrome for nine straight days during May 2015.

Palindromes are words, phrases and number sequences that have the same spelling backward. Words such as “kayak” and phrases like “Was it a car or a cat I saw?” are all palindromes.
