My 6 month old is in 24 month clothes so that work for his first halloween, but I wouldn't be shopping for him at Walmart. Maybe you'll see him playing football for the cyclones in 18 years or so.

I guess we could try to squeeze him in 9 to 12 month size clothes, but how would you like getting your junk pinched like that?
First, not quite the same, but I'm not going to get into the development of boys.
Second, if you can fit him into 9-12 month clothes, no matter how tight, maybe 24 month clothes is a little early since there is a 5 inch and 9 pound difference between the outside of 9-12 month and the beginning of 24 month.
I don't doubt that is is possible for a 9 month old (I'm a little more doubtful about the 6 month old) to be that big, but it is very very unusual. Most likely neither of these is actually in the 97th percentile. The 97th percentile unusual contains anyone over that mark. I'm guessing that you are looking at over the 99th and since when did Walmart make and keep clothes for one percent of the population, for that matter 3 percent? I think you are giving walmart too much credit.
