  • LOL 3 ring. I have noticed my sons friends done the same thing. Mine has done this the past two years in a row, he grew about 5 inches the summer before. During the school year he will grow about 2 inches and that is it, but come summer them legs get longer!

  • I'm only 5'2". My oldest daughter passed me at 14. She's about 5'4". My 13 year old son has a growth delay and well he's alittle over an inch shorter so probably very soon. My 3 yo has a long way to go.
