But apparently one couldn’t hold back when she got a look at Richard Sault, a 14 pound, two ounce baby boy delivered last week via C-section in Laguna Hills, Calif. As the Orange County Register reports, two doctors were needed to lift the child out of mother Sara Sault’s womb. And all I can say is … damn.
As the Register also notes, the 21-inch long kid outgrew his car seat mere seconds after birth. So much for all that research his parents did on whether to buy a Britax or a Graco Snugride.
Little Richard — man, that’s a play on words his parents could not have seen coming — may be the largest child ever born in Orange County. But he isn’t the biggest baby ever. According to the Guiness Book of World Records, that one weighed in at 22.5 pounds, which is darn close to the size of an Olsen twin.
So if you think it feels like you’re running a marathon by carrying around a six or seven pound child, think again. Compared to Sara Sault, all you’re doing is taking a leisurely stroll around the block.
