How fast are your kids growing?

We leave the house pretty early in the mornings (around 7 am or sooner) and I had to actually bust out the winter clothes this morning! (Getting colder here in GA lately.)

What do I discover? My FOUR year old has skipped the size 5's I bought (that she didn't grow into so I kept for this year) and now only has TWO pair of pants to wear! lol, That's all the size 6 we have! And thankfully those were given to her! lol

This is all in a matter of THREE MONTHS because I still let them wear jeans through spring when there were cooler and rainier days!

My 3 year old is soon to be 3 1/2 and JUST NOW hit size 3T in some outfits. She has always been SOOO tiny!

I had to move my 5 month olds carseat straps up to the last spot this am so he will be outgrowing his carseat soon!


2 growing rapidly and 1 hardly growing at all!

  • My older son went from a size 3 1/2 shoe at the beginning of last year to a 5 this year and rapidly growing out of them. He's also just about outgrown his size 10 jeans and will need 12s soon. He'll be 9 in a few weeks.
    On the opposite end is his 10yo sister. She hardly grows at all. She still fits into her size 7 jeans that she's been wearing for 2 years and is still only a size 1 shoe (actually just moved into it, last year she wore a 13).

  • My son has been holding steady w/ 4Ts for about a year now. I imagine by next year I will need to get him 5T.

  • My 12year has a huge growth velocity.....size 8 1/2 shoe already. but my 7year old is small and on human growth hormone (nightly shot). He finally is a size 5~but talk about extreme activity~he needs his own performance enhancement league!
