Her parents are tall but we never imagined she would grow this quickly. Wow!

(and for those who might ask, she had a check-up recently and she doesn't have marfans or anything like that)

My 13 year old boy is only barely 4'8, but he's just really small. My other two kids are a bit smaller than average, but not nearly as much as DS2... DH is 6'1, and I'm 5'4. Most kids in the middle school I run into tower over me even some in the 5th grade seemed like they were taller.

My son is the same. I figured it would happen though. My husband is 6'4 and none of the men in my family are under 6'.

One of my seven year olds is getting close. He's the tallest in all of first grade and just a few inches shorter than his teacher. Who's short. But still.

Holy crap. She's probably about as tall as I am.

My daughter had a girl in her first grade class that was taller than her grandma and she almost came up to my shoulder and I'm 5'9. Her dad is almost 7ft tall.

My son is almost as tall as me 😒 I'm 5'4 and he is above my shoulders. 😕 He's turning 10 next month.

Some grow really fast, some grow until they're really tall, and some do both. Lol. My 9yr old isn't far behind me and I'm 5'7".
