  • My youngest turned 3 yesterday and I measured her the other day and she was 37 1/2". She's grown a full inch since the end of December.
    My oldest daughter was probably 36" when she turned 3 (she was 37" at 3 1/2).
    My son was probably around 40" at 3. The only 2 entries I have in his book around then is 26 months (so 2) and he was already 36 1/2" and then at 4 1/2 he was 43". He's always been tall. He's 7 1/2 and 4'3". He also grew an inch since December. If he keeps up this rate he'll be 4'5" by his birthday. My oldest is almost 9 and only 48" tall (probably a little taller now). Her younger brother has been taller then her since she was 5 and he was 4.
    Not sure about my middle daughter. I don't have her book here and she's always been kind of short.

  • My 3 year old just turned three last December. He was 40 inches the last time I measured him a couple of months ago.

  • My daughter turned 3 about a month ago and she is just a hair under 35 inches. She is small.

    Check out this chart to see where your child is on the percentile chart.

  • My son's 3. He's 42 1/4" and 42 1/4 lbs. He's only 3/4" shorter and 3/4 lb. less than my 5yo daughter and is bigger than most kids in HER class (she's in a late 4s, early 5s preschool class). He's a big kiddo.
