  • No idea how tall he is, I haven't measured him in almost 6 months. We weighed him a couple weeks ago, and he rang in at 41lbs. He wears a sz 4/5, and a sz 10 shoe... He doesn't have an ounce of fat on him, he's just built like a brick shit house! lol he actually weighs more than his 5 year old brother.

  • my dd turned 3 in August and weighs about 32 lbs. So long as she eats alright I wouldn't worry to much. My oldest child was always considered right on the border of being under weight but she would eat more then me she wa just really skinny and burned it all of playing.

  • my daughter is 27 lbs, I don't know how tall she is. She wears size 3 bottoms and size 4 tops. wears size 9 shoe. I think she is small, comparing her to my son at the same age. (he has always been in the 95th percentile for height and weight) but I think she is average.
