Our doctor has not given us proposed adult heights.  DD is 7 and 50.5 for height, 50.6 for weight LOL.   She gained back the weight she lost while sick so 4-5 lbs in 2 months.

My son is in the lower to average range for his height. He did see a pediatric endocrinologist for awhile, and that doctor estimated that he'd be around 6 feet tall. Not quite sure if he'll get that tall, but I think he'll be at least average.

I was that way too. I'm only 5'4. I know both of mine will be taller than me.

My 17 yr old nephew is 6'6". So he towers over everyone! Lol. And his mom is only 5'3. My brother is 6'4

 My oldest grew 4" this past year, and is now taller than me.  Gotta love puberty.  My youngest grew 2" this past year, which is pretty impressive for a 10 year old.  Both of my boys are average height.

My newly 7 year old grew a lot this year too.  She is 50" tall.  She, however, gained very little weight, and is hovering right around 50 lbs as well.  Everyone commented on how tall she had gotten when we headed back to school, but I think it is more noticeable because now she is very thin as well, when before she still had a little kid appearance with more of a toddler shape.  Now she is tall, very muscular and slim.  Clothes are getting bigger around her waist from a year ago!  I guess that is what a really active summer will do to you.

I think my son is going to be very tall... I should see if his pediatrician can give an estimate.  My son just turned 5 in July... he's 48" and 48 lbs

Dd was 35lbs for a couple years straight and it wasn't until last year she gained weight and is now 40lbs. I'm 4'11 so she won't be too tall lol.
