    20 months apart
    X is 6'3" tall. I am 5'7" tall. E is 20 months older than her younger sister, J.

    When J was born, she was 9 lbs, 12 oz (E: 7 lbs, 6 oz). The doctor told me that when he saw her crowning, he was scared to death that she had hydrocephalus, b/c her head was so damned big. Turned out, the rest of her followed suit, and other than some minor, temporary blood sugar problems, she was very healthy, and quite robust.

    She has always, since that day (birth!) been big for her age. She has been off the chart for height (although not for weight, despite the rolls she was born with, she's never run on the chubby side). My parents, my Beloved, myself --- we've always said, "she's gonna pass E by one of these days!"

    Yet, they've remained an inch apart in height (and 2 pounds in weight) since ... 2003? A steady inch. There's something about J that always makes her LOOK taller, or closer in height. I think it's the muscle. She's got a real athletic build, while E is more lanky. J also has her father's VERY long legs (looks much better on a girl, I must say), and that adds to her tall appearance.

    Beloved did his regular measuring last night. He's on a 6 month schedule it seems.

    J is catching up. They're now 1/4 inch apart.

    Poor E. I'm pretty sure that by the end of the summer, she'll be shorter than her younger sister.

    Their school isn't big enough for this to go unnoticed.
