What is your child's height? Give ages please!

My 3 1/2 year old is 43 inches and he's tall for his age, and I was curious how tall that was, so I looked up a chart and it put that as the average height between 6-7 years old. I'm just curious how accurate that is. I figured maybe age 5, but not 6 or 7.  For his weight, he's right around 4 years (he's about 37 lbs).

This was the chart I found:

Then there's this, but I don't understand how to read it:
