for all the mommys of 2 year olds...

just so you know im not saying its perfect and its true for everyone. BUT when my mom had me and my sister at 2 the doctor told her the height we were then told her to times it by two and that would be ABOUT the height of us grown up, which worked for my sis, and my mom thought the one for me putting me at 5''4 was way off seeing as my mom is 5''11 and my dad is 6''4 but here i am at 5''4. so see if it works for your children. it worked for us. and itll be kinda cool to see if it is true and if it worked for you.

  • umm i dunno. ive been told that my boys are on the short side. they are almost 3. one is 3' and the other one is 3' 2" so that means they will be like 6'? my hubby is 5' 8", i am 5' 4", so i have a hard time believing that they will be 6"!

  • I always heard the old wives tale that you double a girl's height at 18 months and a boy's height at 2 years.

    Two of my boys should hit 6' according to the "theory" LOL

    The third might hit 5'6" LOL
