two months vs. two months

24 June 2014


Because what kind of mom would I be if I didn't bust out some comparisons every now and again? A less obnoxious one, that's what kind.

We've got Julia at two months on the left and Phoebe at two months (how?! too fast! way too fast!) on the right. I know it's obvious but my future memory might need some Sparknotes.

I don't know why we were always so flabbergasted when EVERYONE called Julia a boy, "spitting image of his father!!" ... every single time because isn't she just the picture of femininity? I know. I thought the girls looked almost identical as babies but this photo comparison proves otherwise. Also, I would dominate in a game of Memory.

I was looking at some video clips of Julia at two months and she was all go go gadget moving and flailing about and smiling always. Phoebe is content to just be and it's REALLY difficult to coax a smile out of skinny min. But to be fair, Julia hate hate hated her car seat and Phoebe has yet to raise any sort of hell when she's on the go. Phoebe wins. Just kidding, future Julia.

Julia's threat to BOTH Theo and Phoebe whenever they cry is, "do you just need to go back in your mommy's tummy? fine." I can't tell you how much I would love that. But Phoebe's crazy crying sprees are lessening. I can always count on a fussy spell (yes, I'm 89) around seven but then she usually gets it together pretty quickly.

I remember when Julia was a baby I couldn't wait for her to grow up so that we could see what her personality would be like but with Phoebe I'm in no rush for her to grow up and I'd prefer that she stay small and sweet forever and ever please. I love toddlers but babies aren't quite as skilled in the arts of foot stomping, pantry raiding, and tantrum throwing. If it sounds like I like babies better well then ... reading comprehension may or may not be your strong suit. I'll never tell.

FINE.

One more!!


like looking in a mirror, right girls?

Ruh-ight.

And be sure to stay tuned for next week when I spoil you with the 2 month + 1 week side by sides. Variety is my specialty.

Always.

  1. "do you just need to go back in your mommy's tummy? fine." I just spit out my soda, hahaha! That Julia, she knows how to talk to those wee ones!!! Oh the side by sides are funny things when in your head you think they look so much the same but really they don't....have been doing that with my girls and each time I pull up a side by side...wrong again!

  2. Omg, so much baby cuteness in one post. Can't stand it! My favorite is Phoebe in the 4th picture, love her expression!

  3. I thought I was the only one that was totally wrong about my babies looking the same. (I REALLY thought they did and tried to prove it with a side by side. WRONG! ) Oh well. I'll challenge you to a game of memory....promise you stand a chance!

  6. I thought J and P looked alike, too. Now I think she's a J&S hybrid. :) Still, just too too cute for words. Happy two months!

  7. I couldn't wait for my first to grow up and see his personality too. Now with my second, I want her to stay a little baby forever. Except that she's a toddler now. Totally adorable, but totally exasperating!

  8. I always thought my boys looked alike from the get go too--maybe as newborns, but not so much anymore. We need a pic of you or Simon as babies to compare!

  9. Gosh Phoebe looks like a little baby supermodel! And is that olive skin, unless my filtered eyes fail me? She's a baby doll.

  10. SO cute! You can totes tell they are sisters. <3
    Please stop posting cute stuff and post more about blow outs so that I don't get baby hungry. Thanks. ;)

  11. Julia looks so similar to Sebastian as a baby I think. Phoebe looks like her siblings, but can't tell who she looks the most like. Comparing your baby photos to your kids, do they look more like you or Simon?

  12. Julio! Love the throwback pics.

  13. I never compared my girls. hmm, what's wrong with me? Maybe it was because I had them one right after the other so I didn't have any boys in between. My husband's mom is always asking for the kids' measurements around their birthdays so she can compare them to my husband's measurements at those ages. She was quite the baby book keeper. I, however, am not. Sigh. :)

    Love the posts.

  14. They are ridiculously cute. But I would have just lurked as usual if I didn't feel the need to see if you have read Sharleen's (from Juan Pablo's season) Bachelorette recaps! Oh Jones is still perfection, but I laugh out loud at Sharleen and it's fun to hear her behind the scenes take on everything. It's at alltheprettypandas.com .

    1. SO funny you mentioned this because we had one of the interns and his wife over for dinner last night and she told me about the blog! I read it last night -- and I agree. SO great!!!

      So happy I've surrounded myself with Bach fans!!

      Thanks Stacy!!

  15. I can't believe she's already two months - it flies so fast. And those chubby baby rolls - I just want to reach through the screen and squish her!

  17. Aw, they definitely look like sibs though! I love how their personalities are already so different at the tender age of two months.

  18. "Julia's threat to BOTH Theo and Phoebe whenever they cry is, "do you just need to go back in your mommy's tummy? fine." That is so funny! How cute is she?!

  19. How about some side-by-sides with the boys, too? I mean, babies are babies, right? There's no big "this one is a BOY!" inherent physical differentiation for a decade?

  20. The thing that impresses me, in both Julia's pictures and those of my own three-year-old's, is how quickly they started to look like themselves. Sure, teeny babies tend to resemble one another, but already, when they were so little, the seeds of their future good looks (and personalities!) were there.

  21. I think Phoebe looks more old fashioned--my mom had an old doll from the 30s and she LOOKS just like Phoebe does in those pictures--maybe it's the shot or coloring? IDK anyway she's a DOLL even if she makes you crazy with the crying
