No they both eat whatever they want and there hasn't been any significant weight gain in a long time. I'm pretty sure my son has grown height wise. He is just about a foot shorter than me. I'm positive my dd has grown height wise as well. They both have checkups coming in feb and March so we will see.

Christopher has been on a continuous growth spurt since the day he was born so cant usually tell any difference if he speeds up, lol.  Alyssa just the opposite.  She grows so slowly you cant tell.

My littlest only gains 3 lbs and a couple of inches per year, so there really is no 'spurt.'  My 2 almost same size kids just kind of putz.  But my 10 year old has been eating us out of house and home and grew like 6-7 inches from last Christmas to now.  He's in 5th grade and already 5 flt 3.

With Lina no. With my other kids yes it was really easy to tell when they were about ready to sprout.

My son was almost the same height and weight for 3 years. Finally this year he grew about 2.5 inches and put on about 10 pounds. I was never so happy to see a growth spurt. I didn't care that I had to buy him all new clothes and shoes!

Yes, my oldest son (he'll be 13 in February) gets the leg pain. He has grown several inches in height this past year. He is right at about 5 feet now (quickly gaining on me)!

My little guy also gained in height over the last year (a couple if inches) but I can only really tell by the fact that his pants get shorter and/or people who see him less often comment on him getting taller. :)

That's great!  I can't tell with Brady...his growth hormone shots have worked well though:)
