Biggest Baby Ever!

24 September 2009
This 19 lb baby boy was born today in Indonesia.  He is 24.4 inches long.  He was thankfully born by cesarean section.  Look at that kid.  He weighs as much as a one year old.   His mom is diabetic and doctors think that is what caused him to grow so large.  The baby is the biggest baby ever born in Indonesia.  There is reportedly a 22 lb baby who was born in 1955 in Italy, so he's not the biggest in the world. 
His poor mother.  I've had three six pounders (at different times!!!) and it made me feel like there was no room left to breathe, even mothers of twins and triplets often don't have a combined weight of 19 lbs of baby.  I kind of love that little one next to him, just observing.  His mother is going to develop some serious arm muscles from carrying him about.
