Compare and Contrast

Because I have a terrible memory after the whole 4 pregnancies and babies in 4 years thing, I have forgotten what my children looked like when they were babies. So I thought a little compare and contrast was in order. Here they are...Ava, Jace, and Seth at 9 months.


Ava: At 9 months of age, she was 23 pounds and 30" tall. (Above the 95th percentile for height & weight)




Jace: At 9 months of age, he was 26 pounds and 32" tall. (Above the 95th percentile for height & weight)


Seth: At 9 months of age, he is 18 pounds and 30" tall. (10th percentile for weight, 90th percentile for height)


Who do you think he looks like? It's so funny that he's so much lighter weight than they both were...I guess not eating will do that. It's not because he's a preemie, either...Jace was a 35 weeker who had is very own NICU stint, so he and Seth are on even ground in that regard. Oh well...I'm off to eat some cheesecake...we'll see if it will help fatten Seth up!

Those are awesome comparisons! Our Peanut was a 34 weeker, and she didn't hit 18 pounds until she was almost a year and a half! I think she might be 23 pounds now at almost 2!

They are so cute...you make beautiful babies.

Mandy & Jeremy Hall said...

Seth looks like Jace. They are all just adorable - fun post!

Anna said...

I really see Seth when I look at Jace's baby pics! How cute! And I still really love that pic of Seth standing near the doorway! What a cutie!

I agree with your other readers, Seth and Jace are carbon copies of one another. And I'll also agree that you guys make BEAUTIFUL babies, all 4 of them :D

SO CUTE!!!

Stephanie said...

Seth looks just like Jace of course with the exception of his blue eyes! How fun is that to look back!?!

Kameron said...

I think he and Jace look alike. That second picture of Jace and the first one of Seth, you can see the similarities. :o)

amanda said...

My oldest was tall and skinny when she was born (6 days late) and stayed that way. We didn't top 20 pounds until well after her first birthday, and she ate like you wouldn't believe. Every 2 hours like clockwork during the day!

Emily said...

Chubby or not, they are all beautiful babies!

Laura said...

I agree - it is amazing the differences you can get in siblings - Logan was around 18 lbs at 9 months and very similar looking to Seth, whereas Taran is a bruiser at 9 months - 20lbs almost. You have nice tall kiddos!

I have it recorded that my oldest, Jill, was 27lbs on her one year check up. By her two year check up she was 33lbs. AT FOUR years Emmi weighed 28lbs, and at FIVE years she weighs 33lbs!! I had it in my head that I would pass down clothes between my two girls. Ha! The are built so completely differently that only a few dresses and shorts have worked!

Oh man, this post was a perfect "Memory Lane" post. I'm trying to start it up on my blog today. =0)

As for who does Seth look like? He's his own little man! But if I had to pick, I'd say more like Jace.

Cam was my stringbean and Riley was my butterball. Both had the same breastmilk, but they're just DIFFERENT entirely. =0)

Loved the flashback.

Trish said...

Hhhhhhhmmmm.. maybe *I* need some cheesecake!

Mikki said...

Your kids are adorable! I need to do this with my own.

I would definitely have to say that Seth looks a lot like Jace, especially their big feet! Boy did Jace have long and wide feet when he was a lil babe. Their noses and smiles look the similar to me, and possibly their ears as well. The main difference between them that really brings out their own unique qualities, is Jace's dark eyes and hair and Seth's blond hair and blue eyes. [By the way, I love his baby blues! My daughter has the same, and boy am I a sucker for blue eyes!] Jace was bigger than Seth because of the obvious difference in weight.

What I see of Ava in Seth is their cute, little, round heads.

The are all so precious and seem altogether pretty tall!

My baby girl is Seven months old tomorrow; she weighs 15lbs 14oz and is 26" long. She hasn't gained any inches in the last three months which concerns me! Especially since she was born at a 90th percentile for height, and now she's somewhere around the 30th. (She was even born 3 weeks early! Who knows how long she would have been with an extra 3-5 weeks!) I hope she gets a growth spurt so she can be 30" or so like your babies in two months!

Have any other moms seen this issue? Did your baby not grow for a few months, and then suddenly made up for it with a growth spurt? Come on over to my page and let me know if you will! Thanks!

man, he just keeps getting cuter! Actually, all of your babies are gorgeous.

4 Lettre Words said...

Wow! I thought Seth looked like you, while Ava and Jace looked like John. Now I see how much they all favor, tho, especially Jace and Seth. So cool!

Sonya said...

By the way I tagged you. Check out my blog to find out why. :)

Michele said...

Ummm...I'm just impressed that you know your children's stats when they were that age. I don't even know what my children weigh today. Sometimes I can't even remember how old they are. And occasionally I look at them and ask "Who are these children and why are they calling me Mom".
