How old are your children...

How tall are they? What percentage are they? Are they tall, just right, or shorter than most?

  • My children are 41, 38 and 33 and I don't know for sure how tall they are. The boys are probably about 6'1" or 6'2" and our daughter is probably about 5'1" or 5'2". To me, they are all just right!!!

  • He is 15. He is 5'4" or 5'5" and he weighs around 100lbs. He is ok height wise and hella underweight.

  • My oldest daughter is 9yrs old. She is 4'6 and is in the average for her weight and height percentile. My 6yr old daughter is 4'2 and is 48lbs. She is above average for height and weight.

  • My oldest son is 16, he's 5'11" and weighs right now about 162lbs, he's bulking up for football from the 145 he weighed during the winter for wrestling.

    My youngest is 13 and he's 5'1" and weighs 112lbs. He did weigh 105 during wrestling season but will be playing football in a couple months so is putting his weight back on.

    I don't know what would be average for them, but they are both very active and healthy.

  • My oldest dd is almost 11 and 4' 3.5". She is very short for her age. I don't think she's on the chart any more (at least below the 3rd percentile).
    My son is 9 1/2 and 4'7" or so. He's on the tall side but average. Many of his friends are around the same height as him now (when he was younger he was much taller than his classmates).
    My middle dd is 8 1/2 and 4'2". She's average for her age...maybe on the shorter side but still average.
    My youngest dd just turned 5 and is 43" tall. She seems tall but I guess she is average height for her age. She seems tall compared to my other girls at this age (my oldest was only 39" and 32lbs at 5, think my other one was 41" and 40lbs at 5).
    My youngest son is 9 1/2 months and I have no idea how tall he is but he's growing out of his 12 month pants that he's been in since he was 6 months. He's tall like his brother was.
