How big is your 5-year-old?

I think I have a little giant on my hands. He has always been off the charts. He is 4'2" and 65 pounds, wearing a size 8. Everyone says he's ready to play pro football. lol

  • My 5 year old is 4ft, weighs 68 lbs, wears a size 8, and a size 2W shoe. He is the biggest kid in his class. Of course, when he came into the world weighing 11 lbs and 10 oz and are 21 1/2 inches long, he got a good head start over everyone else, lol.

  • She was just at the doctor for being sick a few days ago. She is 46 inches (3'10") and 45 pounds. She wears a size 7/8 and 13 in shoes.
    I'm so happy she's not short like I am!

  • DD is around 45lbs, 45 inches (3ft,9in) and wears anywhere from 5-6x and I can't find shoes for her short wide fat feet for anything!

  • Your DD's would tower over mine! lol. She's a little over 40lbs, and maybe 3'6". She wears a size 4/5, and size 11 shoes. Her 2 year old sister wears a size 7 shoe! lol.

  • It's kind of funny, Ki has a cousin that is 9 months older than her, and Ki caught up to her in height by the time she was a year. Now, when someone sees them together and doesn't know, they think they are both 6. :-)

  • That's probably how big my son was at that age.  I remember he was in size 8 pants in kindergarten.  He's almost 9 now (going into 3rd grade) and has just about outgrown his size 10 jeans that I bought at the beginning of the school year.  He's about 4'6" and weighs at least 75lbs.  I know I can't lift him any more.  He also is about to start wearing a size 5 shoe and can fit into an adult men's small shirt (he wears a kids L or XL).

    My girls are the opposite.  My oldest dd was only 39 1/2" tall and 32lbs when she was 5 (which is smaller than my now 4yo).  She was, and still is, the smallest kid in her class.  She just turned 10 and is 4' tall and just 45lbs.  There is 15 months between the 2 of them and he's been taller since they were 3 and 4 years old.
