Milestone Comparison: Take 5


There really isn’t much of a difference since the last milestone comparison, at least nothing that is really recordable in a baby book.  His latest achievements would be that he is now crawling on his knees and pulling himself to standing position without a problem. He’s not walking yet, although I’ve noticed him take a couple of steps while holding onto things.  When I say a couple of steps, I mean a couple of steps!

We did get him a walker, well, we received on for review and he LOVES it and I think it’s really helping him because within a matter of just a couple of weeks he has gone from moving around in it using both feet at once to actually walking to use it. It was funny to watch him move around at first because it was like he was hopping around the house to get where he wanted to go and now his feet actually move like he’s walking.  He’s getting good at it too, he goes around corners and everything with ease now!

15Month Comparison

Is it just my boys are all kids this messy when they eat?  Thaddeus was eating spaghetti and Xavier was eating chocolate pudding!

It’s amazing to see how different they look at roughly the exact same age, Thaddeus definitely looks older than Xavier in these shots but they are only about 1-month apart in age.  I know that Xavier will start looking his age soon, it’s just a matter of time!

    OMG they are adorable. Isn’t it interesting how different kids are as they grow. I see it all the time as a teacher.

      It is so interesting LOL I knew that Xavier would look small for his age but it still amazes me that he looks 1/2 his age still! We were shopping yesterday and the checkout guy thought he was 7 months old and was super surprised when I said he was almost 15 months old!

    How cute! I wish my daughter would wear a bib. Since she could feed herself
    she’s refused to wear a bib. So when she eats spaghetti or something that
    will majorly stain I have two special stained up outfits just for the occasion lol.
    Thanks for sharing this very cute photos of your kids and milestones.

      As you can probably tell, Thaddeus has nothing on under his bib because he was always so messy at feeding himself LOL He always wore a bib because if he wasn’t making a mess he was drooling all over his clothes and I’d have to change him like 5 times a day to keep him dry. Xavier only needs a bib when eating but he hasn’t gotten to the point of feeding himself yet so I’m sure he’ll be naked too!

    those pictures are too cute, I like to compare my boys milestones too, although I must admit that I took so so so many more pictures of my first born.

      We started off with a lot more pictures of our first than our second, but it was much harder to take pictures of Xavier since he was in the hospital for so long and always hooked up to oxygen and monitors. I would still take some but no where near as many as I did with Thaddeus. On average I think I have about 1,000 pictures per year of Thaddeus and I know it’s been slowing down on him because I’ve been focusing more on pictures of Xavier now that he’s so healthy.

      Bad I know!
