oregano leaf sizes?

(I should probably post this in the Herbs section, but that's pretty slow.)

I'm growing oregano in a big pot. It has been growing rapidly for months. It is a little puzzling because while the leaves have all been quarter inch-size, now I'm suddenly seeing inch-size leaves. See the picture, showing new large leaves interspersed with all the smaller older ones. I thought the large leaves were a weed, but nope, it's the oregano. Is leaf size a plant maturity issue? In most plants, all the leaves are pretty much the same size.
