I reckon DS1 will be like that as he's 3ft 8" & a size 11 shoe and currently wears age 5-6 clothes which are getting a tad short. He's not 4 until December either :shock:

That is a predicted height of 6ft 2" ish for your DS, well ish, they say to measure them on their second birthday and then double it. Being tall myself though I don't think 6ft 2" is particularly tall for a man :wink:

:giggle: I think a man is short if he's under 6ft tall :oops: . I thought Isaac was a little shorter than Jonah at the same age but I kept telling myself it would be ok as long as he's over 6ft tall :lol:

So do I, well not short short but defiantly not tall, even when I was at school and shorter than my girlfriends I never like short men :giggle:
Our Anna isn't going to be overly tall copared to the other 2, she is predicted to be 5ft 8" ish

At 5ft 5" I'd love to be 5ft 8". I have a history of tall boyfriends, all over 6ft with the tallest being 6ft 10" :shock:

DH is 6ft 5", SIL is 6ft 1", MIL is 5ft 10" & my Dad was 6ft 3" so kind of guessed at least one would be tall. You watch, if we have a girl next she'll take after my Irish side with an average height 5ft 2" :roll:

just checked DS1 chart and he was 3ft 9 on his 4th birthday, looks like you have a big one on your hands too, better start saving now :giggle: Oscar will only wear mens size Duffer,Fat face,Ted Baker etc so i tend to get his stuff in the sales now :oops:
My dh family in Ireland are all tall, most of the men are 6ft 2-4 whereas i come from a long line of tinies, women mainly 5ft ish and none of the men over 5ft 5

Oh my goodness, I shall have to sell his toys to fund clothes as he gets older :giggle: . Am dreading the 'labels' stage so will try to keep him away from expensive brands until he can buy his own :wink:

Wow - by post :shock: . There were those sorts of questions too but we went to the local chldrens centre and they'd set out a toy table for the boys to play with which was nice. Got a few new books in his pack too :wink:


Ours are done by post too for the 2 and 3 year checks.

Nathan is 3ft now!
