Every parent thinks their child is special, but one mother knows for certain that her little girl is like no other. This little girl was born at a massive size, and her mom just can’t get enough of her.
Each of Chrissy’s children had been born larger than the average size of a baby. They each weighed around 9 or 10 pounds, while the average American newborn weighs in at 7.5 pounds. Still, this mom was absolutely shocked when she saw her daughter for the first time.
“When the pediatrician showed her to me across the curtain, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, she’s huge,’” she told Inside Edition. “I couldn’t believe it. It was like I delivered a toddler.”
Chrissy wasn’t the only one who had anxiously awaited the arrival of her baby. Everyone in the room had their attention locked on the delivering mom. When she finally pushed her little one out, she received an unexpected applause.
“I heard everybody cheering in the operating room,” Chrissy recalled. “I’ve never had that happen before.”
“All the stuff we bought leading up to her being born, we just donated to a local church,” Chrissy’s husband Larry joked. Even in the midst of total confusion, this family found a way to help others in need.
Aside from her abnormal weight, this baby was born totally healthy. She slept soundly as her parents welcomed her into the world.
“She’s just a happy baby, she smiles all the time,” Chrissy observed. “I can’t get enough of her.”
The couple might be done with child bearing, but they certainly have their work cut out for them. With this little girl’s large size, she will be able to reach high places and cause mischief a lot sooner than her siblings. Parenting Carleigh is sure to be a long and rewarding adventure.
