Gotta Watch: Big bundles of joy

Call these babies “bundles of joy” all you want, just don’t call them little. Check out these videos of babies weighing in at more than 13 pounds!

Mother gives birth to a 13-pound baby – Iowa is known for creating “hearty stock.” Maybe it’s the corn or the wide-ranging farmland. Whatever it is, you can’t deny this mom produces some big boys. With her first child weighing close to 12 pounds, her second pushed the bar even further, weighing in at 13 pounds, 12 ounces. And get a load of the mom’s answer when the (male) reporter asks, “How’d it feel?”

A Texas-sized baby – Barely a few hours old and already this newborn boy had a nickname: “the Moose.” Weighing in at a whopping 16 pounds, who could blame people for the name. The little guy may be the fourth kid in the family, but he easily doubles each his siblings’ birth weights. Though he endured some medical issues early on, if you think his father is worried, think again. See if you can spot the twinkle in his eye when a future in sports is mentioned.

Football fans birth a lineman – New parents can be a bit naïve at times but perhaps thinking your 13 pound baby is normal size takes the cake. It took this Massachusetts couple several shocked expressions from doctors and nurses to realize they had a Super Bowl-sized baby. And just like the father of the above Texas baby, these New England Patriots fans see a football career in their child’s future.

      No, it's not disgusting...these are innocent infants...they haven't hurt anyone nor have they done anything that could be construed as disgusting!
      They'll have to be put on a regiment that will get rid of that extra weight...especially since newborns first lose a bit of weight and then gain logarythmically. The diet should be prescribed by a pediatric nutritionist to make sure that the baby doesn't miss out on any essential nutrients. Again...nothing disgusting about these children! In actuality, you're the disgusting one for having made that comment!!!

    Congratulations on the births of your babies.
    All babies are a gift, and should be treated as such...
    I am always amused when someone says thing like "my baby wighed such and such," "my baby walked at 9 months" "my baby can do this and that"...proud bragging, and I'm guilty of that myself as a parent.

    30 years from now, what does it matter what the baby weighed, how quick the baby walked and talked? It doesn't.

    These babies are innocents, and may they have a safe and happy childhood, and grow up to be productive citizens that will be an asset to our society.

    Judging from some of these comments, they're in short supply.
