If you have more than one child, six months old is a great age to take stock of a few things. I thought it would be fun to look through the monthly photos I’d taken of each kid and do a side-by-side comparison. Looking through the pix will be fun for the whole family, too.
I printed wallet-sized sets of the pictures so I could put them in a book for both kids to enjoy. Let’s take a peak!
Here they are at birth, each one only hours old.
Little 1 month olds!
2 months old – I feel like their little personalities are starting to show up in their expressions.
It looks like I have a thing for pastel pants at 3 months old!
But I definitely didn’t plan it that way!
And for navy blue at 4 months old.
By 5 months, I can really see the boy Travis will become.
Will the same hold true for Veronika?
And finally, my 6 month old kiddos:
It was also interesting to go back and make a few notes on when they each reached milestones. For instance, I found in my baby journal that Travis first rolled at only 2 months – but he only rolled sporadically thereafter. Veronika, on the other hand, waited until she was 4 months old – but then she never stopped, and spent all her time on her tummy!
Veronika was the first one to sit, just before her 6 month birthday. It took Travis longer, until nearly 8 months before he was truly stable on his own. Some other differences? Travis’s first food was pea puree; Veronika’s was banana mash. Travis was 6 lb 3 ounces at birth; Veronika was 6 pounds 11 oz.
It was adorable to go through the pictures with the kids during snuggle time.
We’ll see how they compare with crawling and walking and other milestones, as time goes on!
