Russian mother has 'giant' baby
A Russian woman has given birth to a baby weighing 7.75kg (17.5lbs), more than twice the average newborn weight.
The "little" girl, Nadia, was delivered by Caesarean section at a hospital in the Altai region of Siberia, joining eight sisters and three brothers.
"We were all simply in shock," reports quoted Nadia's mother, Tatyana Barabanova, 43, as saying."What did the father say? He couldn't say a thing - he just stood there blinking," she said.
Fiona(who is only 16 remember) asked if the baby was born normally!
Just thinking about it is painful.
I am officially smegged off!
It is either the result of a reduction in carb intake( I have had a lack of appetite in the last few weeks and so I have put on weight-I eat high calorie rubbish when my appetite is low)with new healthy eating drive OR the fact that I went to buy some canvas boards for my art final piece and found the shop literally festooned with Christmas 'things'.
IT IS SEPTEMBER.
I really believe that the time for celebrating should begin at the beginning of December.I have been on holiday in Spain a number of times over the week that includes the 30 th of November and the decorations come out overnight and are there for the 1st of December. It is also very pretty to see nativities in the shop windows, something that doesn't happen too often here.
I know I am not a Christian but a month seems a pretty good length of time for a religious celebration.
Last year we celebrated Deepavali with a shrine and a gift to school, I think we will do it again this year.It will also be nice this year to find out about Hanukkah and celebrate that.
