Baby XXL

I hold the family record thus far for the biggest babies. My oldest, Stephan, was 21 inches and a whopping 9 lbs. 6 oz. He was followed by the twins who weighed in at 14 lbs. total, tho, by comparison they were petite. Then came Konnie at 9 lb. 7 oz but only 19 inches long.  But big as my babies were they’ve got nothing over the 13 lb 8 oz boy born to a Canadian couple last week.

Gabe was nearly the size of my two babies. But while much is made over his weight, what gets me is how tall he is — 25 inches long. WHOA!!! I suspect the scouts are already salivating.

    I think it would be safe — and accurate — to say that the Canadian Mama had had it up to THERE by the end of her pregnancy.

    I vote she gets free ice cream for the rest of her life.

    When my little Claire and I went back to the hospital and discovered she had a cleft in her soft palette there was a maori lady next door who birthed a 13 pound baby and she was down for the count for three days – took everything out of her poor thing – yep free ice cream for life! and maybe some chocolate.
