DENVER, Colorado (CNN) -- Ann Dee Jackson's tiny size hasn't stopped her from making big news. She's the second-smallest premature baby to survive. She was delivered three months early. At her birth on July 26 she weighed just 11.5 ounces, and was given a one percent chance of survival. She now weighs almost two pounds, and will likely go home in late November.

Tuesday in Jackson, Mississippi, newborn Bryant Terry Crosby weighed in at 14 pounds, 13 ounces. He's 22-inches long, with a full head of hair. A doctor said the cesarean delivery was difficult because Bryant was so large. The biggest baby on the record books weighed in at 22 pounds.
