It’s true that every child is different, and that you can’t compare them. Even though both my boys were born in June, and just 4 days apart (Ben on the 19th, and Henry on the 23rd), they are growing so differently from each other!
Henry was always in the 20th or percentile for weight and height. He always looked little and petite. And, as far as clothes would go, whatever age he was, was what he was going to fit into. For instance: if he was 6 months old, he fit in 6 month clothes.
Ben on the other hand is night and day compared to Henry. Ben is in the 65-75 percentile for weight and height. And, he’s a chunky thing. This kid has rolls on top of rolls – it’s absolutely adorable! At Just shy of 5 months old, he’s fitting into 6-9 month clothes.
We thought that we were going to be able to save some money by recycling clothes, but it looks like we’ll have to buy Ben a lot because Henry’s 6-12 month wardrobe is for spring and summer….not winter.
It just goes to show you that no two children are alike, even if their birthdays are four days apart….
