It's an interesting puzzle, but one that can be solved thanks to Daylight Saving Time.

The first of Emily and Seth Peterson's twins, Samuel, was born at Cape Cod Hospital at 1:39 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6. His brother Ronan was born 31 minutes later, but Daylight Saving Time had ended. The clocks were turned back, so Ronan was technically born at 1:10 a.m.
