Well, just when you thought you'd heard it all, something comes along to make you scratch your head and say hmmmmmmmm....

Man, i may have a few interesting stories to tell about my childhood, but i can't imagine standing around the water cooler at work talking about how i had a foot in my brain when i was born!!!!!!!!

Yup, if you haven't seen it on the news today... Here's the story!

A vertical scar on his right temple, above the ear and just where his hairline ends, is the only sign that 3-month-old Sam Esquibel is more than the perfect baby he appears to be. He’s also a medical marvel.

“He is a miracle,” his mother, Tiffnie Esquibel, told TODAY’s Matt Lauer Tuesday in New York as little Sam fussed on her lap. “I just love him so much.”

Sam, dressed in a lumberjack shirt, made his first national appearance on TODAY after making headlines and amazing doctors three days after his Oct. 1 birth. He has become known as the baby born with a foot in his brain, and even three months after the tumor containing the tiny foot and other partially formed body parts was removed during a delicate and successful surgery, doctors are still debating exactly what it was inside baby Sam’s head.
