bigger little sister

so bug's 15.5 pounds and 24.5 inches. i went back and checked pooka's stats at 4 months of age: 15.3 pounds and 25 inches. similar, right? wrong. the growth to date is much more significant on bug's part.

pooka started out at 8#3oz and 21 inches, while bug was a peanut at 7#4oz and only 18.25 inches. that's a lot of growth! AND my favorite part: bug is exclusively breast-fed.

so, will this lead to bug being bigger than her older sister? maybe. i'm bigger than my older sis. and, unfortunately, pooka also has to contend with the fact that chemotherapy can stunt growth.
