Yahoo News is reporting that a newborn baby from Cancun called "Super Tonio" is causing quite the stir in the resort town. Apparently, the kid popped out of the oven at a sturdy 14.5 pounds. In fact, the baby's become quite a spectacle, as Cancun residents have been crowding around the nursery's ward window to get a peek. According to the article, Tonio (Antonio Vasconcelos), downs 5 ounces of milk every three hours, and after just a couple of days is already 22 inches tall. And while this kid is definitely big boned, he doesn't exactly measure up to Guinness standards. The World Record Book has the heaviest baby born to a healthy mother down at 22 pounds, 8 ounces in September 1955. Read more here at Yahoo.
