So, did I miss my chance for a 2001 dependent? There is a promising rumor in my office that I can claim my daughter for 01 because my wife was in active labor in 01.

There's a promising rumor in my house that I'm going to hit the lottery. Sorry, but if the birth certificate says 2002, you don't have a dependent for 2001. See Publication 501.

More importantly, congratulations on the addition to your family.
