I know what you mean, my oldest passed me in height last year. I was glad for him because he used to be one of the shortest kids in his grade, but it's bittersweet.

Wow that is something. My twins were preemies and are both 5 now and both weight 34lbs each. Though one is taller then the other. LOL

My oldest has all ways been taller then the other kids in his class. When he started 6th grade last year one of his teachers asked him if he stayed back a year because he was so much taller then the other kids in the class. But he has never been held back. He as just always been very tall and skinny for his age. LOL

We have alot of short people and tall people in my family but the tallest person by far is my 82 year old grandfather who is 6 foot 6 inches tall. God I hope my son doesn't get that tall. LOL

My son was about that weight at 5, give or take. Once he hit 7 or 8, he has just gone into overdrive! Now puberty is kicking in, it's so great but I'm still in shock, lol! I distinctly recall looking in his incubator and worried about him just staying alive. Tiny thing...
