You know, I’ve been looking at this thinking that we’ve been taking fewer pictures of Chilkoot than we did of Chilkat at the same age. But, it’s possible that this graph actually shows that since Chilkoot was born, we just take more pictures of both of them together. Chilkoot was born when Chilkat was 877 days old. Every picture of Chilkat before she turned 877 days old was a picture that could only be a picture of her; after Chilkat was 877 days old, every picture of her had a good chance of also having Chilkoot in it. From the time Chilkoot was born, every picture of him had a good chance of also having Chilkat in it. Without looking carefully at the numbers, we have more pictures of Chilkoot up until he he’s close to 900 days old than we did of Chilkat.

So, maybe once Chilkoot was born, we just started taking pictures of the kids more often. This means we have more pictures of Chilkoot up until he hits 877 days old, in which case the Chilkoot effect affects Chilkat.

“Chilkoot effect affects Chilkat” is one of the most confusing phrases I have ever looked at.
