Charlie keeps on growing!

SUPER tot Charlie Railton stunned doctors and midwives when he weighed in at a hefty 13lbs 4oz at birth.
The bruising baby – who also measured in at 60cms long – is thought to be the second largest ever born at Pontefract General Infirmary when he came into the world on January 29.
Now aged just four months he wears clothes to fit a one-year-old – and his astronomic size shows no sign of stabilizing. His proud mom Steph Munton, of Wenthill Close, High Ackworth, said: "Charlie's birth was quite traumatic – he was born naturally after a ten-hour labor." Our midwife said he was the biggest she'd delivered in 22 years and the second largest ever born at PGI. "Now he is four months old and he weighs 24 pounds – that's about the size of a one-year-old." Charlie is the latest large addition to the family, with his sisters Bethan,12, Amber, 15, and brother Sam, nine, all weighing more than ten pounds at birth.
Steph added: "I thought the others had been large but Charlie completely overshot that. "He is just as large, proportionally, as when he was born. He's not fat but his feet are big, his arms are, everything is." "He eats three meals a day and loves loads of fruit and vegetables."
