  • My Cousin is 5'9 and her hubby is 7'0... They have 2 daughters who are rediculously tall. As toddlers people would make comments like "why is that 3 year old still sucking a bottle" I know a few times my Cousin flew off her handle and chewed some people out.... Cause her baby wasnt 3 she was like a year! Her eldest is now 11 and she is taller than my 5'2..

  • Wow, that must be a bundle of fun when his/her little legs get tired! My 4 year old is only 30lbs. How does his/her height compare? So long as the percentiles are roughly the same it's usually not an issue. Their growth will probably slow down a bit too. Last year at preschool we had a couple of boys who were a good bit taller than my son but they slowed down and he caught up.

  • That's about normal, really. Mine was 31.5 lbs and 34.5 inches at 25 months.
