GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Family members of a rather big baby believe he is the largest ever born at UF Health Shands Hospital.
Isaiah Lawrence Johnson came into the world on Dec. 20 weighing an astonishing 14 pounds, 7.6 ounces and was 22 and a half inches long, according to the hospital.
Currently staff at UF Health Shands Hospital is checking internally with vital statistics to see if Johnson sets a new record and have placed a call to Tallahassee to see if he is the largest on state record.
Mom and baby are both healthy and doing just fine at UF Health Shands Hospital.
