Differences between Anderson and Samuel

Anderson has 10 teeth, Samuel has none.

Samuel is taller and has longer feet, Anderson is shorter and has shorter feet.

Anderson weighs more, Samuel weighs less.

Anderson is calm, Samuel is WILD. (just like they were in the womb)

Anderson had baby acne, Samuel did not.

Anderson had cradle cap, Samuel did not.

Samuel can crawl, Anderson cannot.

Samuel has green/hazel eyes, Anderson has brown eyes.

Samuel has blonde hair, Anderson has brown hair.

Anderson sleeps better than Samuel.

Anderson eats better than Samuel.

Samuel has reflux, Anderson does not.

Samuel has a high pitched cry, Anderson has a low pitched cry. (Samuel squeels and Anderson grunts!)

Anderson loves to be cuddled, Samuel likes to be free and do his own thing!

Anderson has eczema, Samuel does not.

And I'm sure there are many more that I'm just missing at the moment!

They do both love their stuffed animals though. Anderson has a monster, and Samuel has a puppy. Very fitting I think!

It just amazes me how many differences there are between them! I thought they may be more similar since conditions in the womb were the same for them, but it just really shows how different people (even siblings) are even before they are born! Before I had kids I thought.....how different can babies really be? Sure, there may be a few differences but they all basically just eat, poop, sleep, and play, right? Wow, was I wrong! When I look back on how Audrey was as a baby, she was totally different than Anderson and Samuel, too! I'm so thankful that I have such beautiful and distinctively different children. :)

It is so crazy how different they are! I know that two siblings can be night and day but for some reason when they are grown at the same time you expect differently (or I do!) lol...

Hey this is Macchiatto from the Bump Multiples board. Not sure if you remember me but I just dropped by to see how you were doing. :) I know what you mean about the differences! My boys are very different from each other, too!

Shannon--it's Kara Thom, and I don't know how else to get a hold of you so I'm leaving a comment here! Hope it finds you! Just wanted to say thanks for your tremendously sweet note on the Hot (Sweaty) Mamas Facebook page. The comment was emailed to me before it disappeared from the page (I have no idea why!) But I wanted you to know it made my day, to know I can inspire someone like that. Hang in there, these crazy years DO get easier. My threesome are now 7,7,6 and I honestly don't know how we managed but I'm proud we did! The secret, of course, is taking care of yourself throughout this demanding stage and it sounds like you're doing that! Take care, Kara
