Richard Walker Sault was quite the surprise. Born two days before Christmas in Laguna Hills, he was larger than expected. Much larger. 14 pounds, 2 ounces, which is double the size of average newborns. He was delivered by caesarean section by the hands of two doctors (one was not enough for this big boy) and the family is reported to be in good health.
