Oh, Mama!

This is old news, I know. But, I still can't get it out of my mind.
Last week, a woman in Milwaukee gave birth to a baby that weighed almost 14 pounds.


Now, that's a miracle!

To put this into context, let's take a look at some common items that also weigh 14 pounds:
  • A Bissell 3545 Power Glide lightweight upright vacuum
  • The amount of turkey consumed by the average American each year
  • The world's largest pearl
  • The world's lightest accordian
  • The average human head
  • The average full grown domestic household cat
  • A 1-inch by 1-inch rectangle of water that is 33 inches high
  • The average 8-month old baby. (This not-so-little one definitely has a head start.)
God bless mom and the big enchilada.
