Was looking over the pics. 5th to last pic, one of the VFT babies might have a 3rd seedling leaf. See if you can find it and let me know what you think.

I'm not seeing what you're talking about. 5th to last pic? The one labeled DSC4371? Those aren't VFT babies.

I think I see what you're talking about. It's uncommon, but not unusual to grow a third cotyledon before growing carnivorous leaves. I've even seen four cotyledons.
More photosynthesis baby!
