I like the old idea that you can double a child's height at age 2 to get their height when fully grown. I don't know if this is actually true, so I have kept good track of those measurements so I can see when they do grow up. (Okay so I guess I didn't keep as good a record as I thought...I can't actually find Rand's measurements written down, so his stats are actually just from my memory...)
Seth had his check-up on Tuesday. He is 31 pounds (which is about 85% right now - the kid is eating a ton) and 35 1/2 inches tall (which is about 75%). He took his 2 shots in stunned silence. Rand also had his 5 year old check up and both boys are doing really great.
So doubling the height of all my kids, this should be their height when adults:
Rhianna - 34 in = 68 in or 5' 8"
Rand - 36 1/2 in = 73 in or 6' 1" (it may have been 6'2"...)
Seth - 35 1/2 in = 71 in or 5' 11"
So we will see...That puts Rhianna and Seth and even Rand at pretty average heights. I expect Rand to be taller since he has always been higher percentage wise as a kid. Since Rhianna has gotten a little older her height percentage has gone down, she is a little shorter than others and so may be when she gets older too (like me??). So we will see. I guess that is why I think it is an interesting idea.
