My 8 yr old grew...

From the time my dd was 4 till she was 7 she put on a total of 5 lbs and grew a total of 3 inches. We had a doctors appt today. She has gained 8 lbs and grown 4 inches. Freakin finally. It sure explains a lot about all those clothes not fitting.

Anyone else have a huge growth spurt in a year??

  • My youngest grew 13 inches in 15 months between his 7th and 8th grade yr. In 7th grade he was literally the small child in middle school. He was way behind and zooom. They problem then became unstable hip joints and stretched ligaments. He grew so fast in so short a time he required surgical repair to his his and knees. He has stretch marks to this day from it.
