  • it all depends on genetics honestly, my nephew is 10 months older than my daughter and she towers over him. My boys were always taller than other kids until they hit school age where they evened out. I also had children who were all in the 90th percentile.

  • My mother always says "36 months, 36 inches and 36 pounds". That is supposed to be the point which they start weighing more than they are tall. My kids were smaller than that though.
