He's caught her!

When Konrad was born, I wondered how quickly he would be taller than Natalie, what with Konrad being at the top of the curve or even above the curve for size, and Natalie being near the bottom of the curve (having RTS means she'll be shorter than her siblings).

I've already had the comment of "twins?" a couple times, but not recently. I'm sure it will happen more, once Konrad reaches Natalie's height...but she's been growing, too, so he might not be as tall as she is until after he turns two and she turns four.

But here's one way he's already "caught" her...their feet are now the same size: shoe size 6 1/2. If you click on the photo, you can see her grubby foot on the left has pink nail polish, and his on the right still has baby fat around the ankles.

Today was Konrad's 18-month check up. Can you believe it's been 18 months since that blessed day? I can't!

Anyway, for the record, Konrad is 28 lbs, 3 oz (80th percentile for his age) and 35.5 inches tall (1 inch above the 97th percentile). Right now, our NBA star is having an afternoon nap after a morning of errands with me and vaccinations. He has to keep growing, and all the growing happens while he's sleeping, you know!

It's happening here too...I'm taking the 3T clothes that Austin wore last summer and putting them in Andrew's drawer since that's the size he's wearing this summer! AHHH! In a year or two, they'll be in the same size! It's so funny to think Konrad is only 4.5 inches shorter than Austin!
