Jacob is catching up! We had a "well" visit today, complete with weight check. Josh is 18 lbs 15 oz, and Jacob is 18 lbs 6 oz, the first time they've been within a pound of each other. Both were 27", and everything fell in the 50-75th percentile. I had to put "well" visit in quotes because we seemed to have more assorted maladies today than at a typical sick visit. Nothing serious, thankfully, just random rashes and a lot of snot. Ear infection falls in the "snot" category, I think...
At the risk of sounding like an exam problem from my Math for Liberal Arts class, the twins' weight difference at birth was a 15% relative difference -- extremely noticeable. Even though they're still more than half a pound apart, the relative difference now is only 3%!
