Friday, January 12, 2007I've posted before about how interesting it is to see how the exact same milk can react in two different bodies. Elnora and Emmitt have been opposites from the start, but when it comes to size, the difference is astonishing.
At three months, Emmitt now weighs more than Elnora did at a year. (For the record, she was 16 pounds at a year, he's 17 pounds at 3 months.)
In fact, she only outweighs him now by about 3 pounds. Here's a shot of them laying on the floor next to each other after he got his bath...
It gives the extended family something to complain about though...one's too fat, one's too skinny. I should stop nursing Emmitt so much and I should force feed Elnora. Oh well, whatever makes them feel better.
Personally I'm debating telling them that we love Emmitt more, so we're saving all the food for him.
(I'm JOKING...geeze...put down the phone. I don't need CPS showing up at my house.)
How does that happen anyway? I mean I know milk is tailored to the child, but good grief. I though kids tended to get a mix of both parents genes. I didn't know one could get all the "super skinny" genes and the other could get the "linebacker" jeans.
He's gonna outweigh her in a month.
At least he can beat up anyone that messes with his big sister. Then again, if she's anything like me, I have a feeling that she probably won't need much in the way of defending...
