The younger child is bigger

My daughter and son are a year apart. My daughter is now taller than her older brother. They are ten and eleven so I know that girls grow faster than boys at this age, but my son is so mad that his "little" sister is taller than him. LOL

Have not got to that poiny yet but I know we will because my daughter is 16 months and is 22lbs where my son is 6 months an 20lbs! I am constanly asked if they twins which is odd to me right now because one is walking around and talking and the other is in a baby carrier and cooing (except they other day I had them in a side by side it was more plausable) but I know in a couple months Ty will out grow his older sister

My girls are 1 and 2. My 2 year old is significantly taller (and probably will always be) but she is very thin, whereas my 1 year old is quite chunky and very very strong, quite a bit stronger than her "big" sister. The result is that my little one bullies my bigger one. Drives my 2 year old absolutely nuts.

I have a two year old and a three year old.  My two year old son is much larger than my three year old daughter.  In fact my son out weighs my daughter by five pounds!  Sometimes I cannot belive my daughter is soooo small!

My boys are 2 and 3. My 2 year old is still shorter but he's bigger and stronger in every other way. It seems as though he's the only one that can put my 3 year old in his place some times:S

Hi Jessica,
I have 2 boys ages 7 & 8. They are the same height and it drives my 8 year old crazy. He is constantly asking us to measure them in hopes that he will grow. I think my 7 year old will end up being the taller of the 2 but we shall see. Take care.
