Smaller than the glass of Diet Coke I just pounded, 11-oz. Dakota Juanita Guido is believed to be the second-smallest baby born...in the US? in captivity? I don't quite know what the hook is here.
She was delivered 14 weeks early by Caesarean because of her mother Sahara's diabetes/high blood pressure complications. 14 weeks is within the growing window of viability, and according to the chirpy local Tv newscast-level of detail in the AP story, she's just fine.
Good luck to the Guidos (accent on the second syllable, please, it flows better), cuz it's a long road out of that NICU.
