Friday was a BIG DAY for a Lexington couple and Lexington Medical Center! And we do mean BIG.
That's the day Colin Austin Keisler came into the world at a whopping 14.4 pounds!
According to staff at Lexington Medical Center, Colin is the biggest baby the doctor ever delivered – and the biggest baby any of the mother/baby staff can remember in the hospital’s history. According to statistics, the average baby weighs 7.5 lbs at birth, and 14.4 lbs is the weight of a 4 or 5 month old.
Colin was delivered via cesarean section and is a happy, healthy baby, according to his parents. The only problem they hay have encountered? None of his clothes or diapers fit him when he was born! He's already wearing 3-6 month clothes at three days old.
Our Loren Thomas is visiting with the Keisler family today. Look for this "big story" on News 19 this evening!
