My oldest was measured at 47" at the beginning of may and when measured the other day she is now 50" she outgrew her size 7 pants length wise and went from a shoe size 13 to 1.5 is that normal? Just seems like a bit much for 3 months

It seems fairly normal to me. She may be transitioning to a once a year spurt instead of a steady growth throughout the year.

Shoe change from 13 to 1.5 is just a half size. 13 is considered a "toddler size" 1 is the youth size, but they measure right at the same. my daughter always has a big spurt in the summer, and grows only slightly thru the school year. This summer we're looking at about 3 inches also.

its normal in my house. They eat me out of hosue and home and then all of a sudden nothing fits. You know you put them to bed in jammies that fit fine and its like they wake up the next mornign with tummies showing and highwaters. lol

 Seems pretty normal! My daughter tends to have large leaps like that.
