The latest addition to Michael Brown and Janet Johnsons family is too big for his britches literally.
When the Longview woman went into Good Shepherd Medical Center for a scheduled Cesarean section on Friday morning, she knew she was going to give birth to a big baby.
She just had no idea how big.
When her son, JaMichael Brown, was born at 9:05 a.m., he weighed 16 pounds, 1 ounce about 4 pounds more than doctors predicted.
The baby is the largest born at Good Shepherd Medical Center. Hospital officials believe he may be the largest baby ever born in Texas, but it will take several days of combing state records to make that announcement official.
Were just amazed, Johnson said. I cant believe hes that big. A lot of the baby clothes we bought for him will have to be returned. Theyre already too small for him to wear.
The baby also emerged with a full head of hair, and the newborn nursery didnt have diapers big enough to fit him, she said.

Yeah...my mother was diabetic and I was nearly 13 lbs at birth...she weighed in at about 100! I was the biggest kid in my class all the way through the 10th grade, when everybody else started to grow.
This was an article posted here a couple years back announcing the birth of an 18 lb. baby...think it was a boy.
