Bringing Home my Foster Kid vs. Bringing Home my Newborn

Just for fun, I wanted to do a comparison of just how different their first few days at home were.

Liam's size :  Approximately 12 lbs and wearing size 3mo clothes
Ronan's size : 8 lbs. 12 oz. at birth and in newborn clothes (for about 3 weeks).

Age when he came home:
Liam : 5 months + 1 week old
Ronan :  Newborn! 41 weeks + 1 day in the womb.

Amount of Time to prepare for baby's arrival :
Liam :  About 16 hours
Ronan :  About 10 months

Liam : formula fed.
Thoughts: How much? When?
Ronan : breast fed.
Thoughts: How long? Ouch.

Mom's age when Liam came home: 28
Status: healthy, active and well-rested.
Mom's age when Ronan was born: 32
Status: exhausted, 20 lbs overweight and tore up from the floor up.
