March babies are optimistic and happy.
The third month of the year spans the cusp between the end of winter and the beginning of spring.

Babies born in the spring tend to be taller.
Exposure to daylight during the increasingly longer days of spring has positive effects on mothers, resulting in taller babies born toward the end of March.
