more on baby sizes

Okay I was wrong - our winter stash of baby clothes does not fit Olive all that well, they're kinda falling off her. But we're making it work.

I had to look up what the deal was with that so I went to my entries in the old june 2010 babies community - I never really got into a similar community with Olive, there was one on facebook instead, but for Josie I was active and posted almost every month with her stats & milestones.

Anyway at six months, Olive weighs 16 lbs 12 oz. Josie was up to TWENTY POUNDS.

Olive: no teeth. Josie: three, almost four.

Olive: Crashes around 8pm every night, sleeps every night until 4 or 5. Josie: Had to be swaddled to sleep around 9 or 10 I think, and woke up every 2-3 hours. (I think re-reading this triggered some post-traumatic stress in Marc, he kinda shuddered)

Olive: rolls and rolls and rolls to get where she needs to go. Josie: Would stay sitting up if you put her in that position, constantly got up on her hands and knees, was crawling and pulling up at seven months.

Olive: eyes seem to be staying blue. Josie: Eyes were really turning brown by now.

And the most obvious difference, how I can always tell in the pictures who's who, is that josie had darker skin. and eyebrows! here, see if you can tell who's who:



So it's almost like Josie was a lot further ahead, but I wonder what would happen if we could somehow know both their ages in "waking hours". Because I feel like Josie had probably had at least 50% more meals by this age since she never slept. She was just nuts.

I know they look alike, we hear that all the time, but to me it's like we have two totally different kids.

It's even weirder when the two totally different kids are twins. At 8 months or so, one could sit up and the other could crawl (but not vice versa) and they could also communicate, so the sitter sent the crawler across the room to get toys.

I'm thinking Josie on right, Olive on the left? Their coloring looks the same in these to me.

I see so many similarities and yet they look so different!! Always felt Josie looked like dad and Olive has your features…
