Why They Can't Be Quads

As the babies have gotten older there has become a wider gap in the weights between them. At birth there was a 1.5 pound weight difference between the Tate who was the largest baby and Kenzie who was the smallest. Now at 18 months that difference is 10lbs. That is a huge amount of weight when you are talking about something that's total weight is less than 30 pounds. Lately one of the comments we get when we are out is, 'There is no way they are the same age. She is so much smaller than he is.' As I am reassuring them that YES they really are quadruplets, what I really want to ask them is if they were the exact same size as their siblings at the same ages. Just because they were born at the same time does not mean they are any different than two siblings born years apart when it comes to their growth.

I thought it would be fun to compare the weights and heights of all the kiddos at different ages up until 18  months. This also means that I will have all this info in one spot which allows me to toss all the papers from the doctors offices I have accumulated over the years telling me what their measurements were!

This post took me way longer than it should have because it was so fun to look back at pictures of the girls and Drew and see how they have changed as they have gotten older. I also love seeing mannerisms that are only theirs that I did not see when they were young but can truly say that it is something that defines them now. There are also a couple pictures that if they were not categorized by year I would not be able to tell if it was Tate or Drew. To me, of all my kids those two look the most alike but I also see lots of similarities between Aubrey and Kenzie. Among your children do you have any that look a lot alike or are they each their own?

  1. I love this, what a great idea having everyone's stats in the same place. You can definitely tell all 7 are siblings and come from you & Paul!

  2. Oh wow, what a great idea and great post!! Thanks so much for sharing. It must have taken you quite some time to gather all the information and pics. :-)

    It's the first time I notice that Isabella totally takes after Aubrey (looks wise :-) ).

    Oi, and all the different hair styles. So fun to compare.
