Do your children all look alike or similar?
Were they similar birth weights?
Did they meet their milestones around the same time?

ehh they all have their own look here is a side-by-side when they were all new borns

and now

Raianna was 8lbs 6oz at 40w3d Elyse was 6lbs 3oz at 39w1d and Helena was 6lbs 6oz at 40w2d

and for the most party they all reached their milestones around the same time crawling 4-5 months walking 8-9months the only thing that varied was teeth...both raianna nd elyse got theirs early around 3-4monthswhile Helena got them in later than they did by a few months closer to 6-8 I think

Kristy, wife to Karl 6.16.01, Mom to Raianna 12.7.00, Elyse 12.3.02 and Helena 7.20.07, step-mom to Frankie 7.3.97 and step-grandma to October 3.9.15

Avery was 8lb 4oz at 42w1d and Dawsyn was 7lb 11oz at 42w. (I bake them extra long- both were induced labours that ended in csection).

Dawsyn is ahead of where Avery was by a lot- she's going to meet her milestones sooner. We had a rough start with Avery and at 3 weeks she was still below her birth weight. That effects her still to this day.

Do your children all look alike or similar? I have 8 and 3 have almost the same color of hair, the other 5 same. only 2 have curls and only ds looks very much like daddy. Only 1 is chubby the rest are slim nature. ALL are tall for age. Boys reaching over 6 ft height.

Were they similar birth weights? None of my kids have been over 7 1/2 pounds and are basically about the same. Boys being slightly average little larger.

Did they meet their milestones around the same time? Mostly yeah. Walking happened a little earlier with the boys though. Being fully potty trained including night trained happened by the average age of 1 1/2 for the girls or younger and then for the night trained thing the boys took a little longer . Not much though.

We have three kiddos and I personally dont think any of them look much alike but sometimes I see them do something and the way they look is just like one of the others. Everyone says my girls look alike but I dont think so other than he nose..the oldest has dark brown hair and brown eyes and the youngest girl has blonde hair and blue eyes LOL but a lot of people say they look alike but I just dont see it. Our son looks like a clone of his father..he came out looking like him with blonde hair and blue eyes but his hair has gotten darker now its a dirty blonde color but in photos it looks brown sometimes.

Wyatt was 7'14, Xander was 6'4. Xander was on the early side for milestones, Wyatt is delayed and has been referred to early intervention. But they're also half brothers. They look a LOT alike though.

Wyatt is 16 months old and Xander is 5 years old.

All different. They look enough alike that you know they're related but as babies, they were different looking.
Connor was 7lbs 3oz and hit milestones kinda early. Although to be honest I never gave milestones much thought. He had dark eyes and black hair with cool red highlights. By a month his eyes looked more green and his hair was dark blonde. Today his eyes are hazel like mine and his daddys. Hair is dark blonde like mine but, in looks, all daddy.

Avery was 8lbs 10oz. My biggest baby but he lost weight and didn't gain it back well. He was fair haired and blue eyed...still is except his eyes have a green color to them sometimes. He favored his paternal great grandma....still does.

Devinn was 7lbs 15oz. He was in the middle of his brothers stats...all of them. He had dark eyes and hair and favors me and my dad. Still does.

Avery was slow to walk and talk, he's always gone by his own timeline....always.
Devinn was on time I'd say.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~
