According to Rose, she and Violet are the same size.

“Violet is the same size as me! We’re both medium!”

Violet is not quite 1 year old and weighs 17 pounds. Rose is 3 1/2 years old and weighs 35 pounds. She’s been consistently 90th percentile or higher for height her entire life. Violet wears size 9-12 months and Rose wears a girls’ size 5 or 5T (They seem the same to me, but maybe I’ve transitioned wrong twice now?).
To say Rose and Violet are the same size is ludicrous. We’re not sure what she means by this. Does she really think she’s as small as Violet or is it something else?

We keep asking her if she is bigger than Violet and she’ll admit she’s taller or “Tall Medium” while Rose is “Small Medium”, but she still claims they are the same size. Even though Rose is almost the same size as Lily for real, she says she is not the same size as Lily. Lily is “Big” and “Tall”. Lily and Rose weigh the exact same amount and Lily is only a few inches taller than Rose. People think they are twins all the time.
I don’t get it. Violet is clearly little to me. She is smaller than the other two girls were at this age. Every 9 month old we meet is bigger than Violet and Violet is almost 12 months old!

But no. She’s medium and clearly the same size as a 90th percentile 3 1/2 year old! Rose said it so it must be true!
