It was a strange, but exciting day on May 15 at the Orange Park Medical Center, Florida, when a toddler-sized newborn came into this world. Proud mum Chrissy Corbitt from Florida welcomed a 13.5 pound baby girl, and I can only imagine what holding her for the first time felt like. Imagine your stomach as big as it can get, and then imagine a lot bigger than that. Then, when you finally get to deliver the baby, you see a toddler coming out. Scary but beautiful.
Little Carleigh was almost twice the average weight of a baby girl. Chrissy compared her size to a toddler’s and she explains that her clothes are for a nine-months-old.
“They were throwing out numbers and when they showed her to me and said 13.5, I couldn’t believe it.”
“It looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly. She’s so big,” she told ABC News.
Baby Carleigh came through a C-section, and she shocked doctors as well.
They were actually expecting Chrissy to give birth to twins, due to the size of her stomach. I wonder what Chrissy felt like with that baby bump. Her husband claims that she can basically handle anything.
Carleigh is Chrissy’s and Larry’s fourth child, but they say this is probably the last one they will have.
“She’s like a 6-month-old baby,” husband Larry Corbitt said.
Also, her diapers are a size three! Her parents decided to have a sweet photoshoot with photographer Debbye Benson of Sweet Smiles Photography Studio. As you can see from the photos, she looks absolutely adorable.
