A North Texas baby born over the weekend weighs in at 13 pounds and is 2 feet long.
We interrupt this day of all things Texas Rangers (not really since the child is in a Rangers shirt) to bring you word of a newborn who broke the size record for infants delivered at Texas Health Harris Methodist Southwest in Fort Worth.
The kid -- named Justice -- joined the ranks of the living-breathing weighing in at 13 pounds, and wowza, hope mom’s OK. It likely comes as no surprise that the delivery occurred via C-section.
The weight becomes even more attention grabbing when one considers the fact that the baby was born three weeks before his due date. Imagine how big that little sucker [hehe] might have been after waiting full-term to get welcomed to the world.
A missive from the hospital stated that little Justice -- and there’s your oxymoron for the day -- broke the hospital record for baby-weight-at-birth, so geez, poor kid, what do you do for an encore?
The doctor who delivered Justice -- and there’s the title of a Western novel I’ll never write -- said he’d never seen a baby who weighed 13 pounds at birth.
Here’s betting the mother is glad she has.
