Can't speak for Emersyn yet, but it's VERY unlikely Gaby will be shorter than me. LOL. I am only 5'0, so really there is every chance that both girls, will tower over me. Esp Gaby, because her father is 6'0

I don't know. I'm 5'7" and their dad is 5'9". He would have been a few inches taller, but b/c of severe scoliosis, he had 3 rods put in his back at age 13. His entire family (women included), are over 5'11", except his dad who is like 5'8". In my family, most of the women are my height or shorter. There are a lot of men over 6' .... so I guess what I'm saying is, I have no clue how tall my kids will be. Nothing will surprise me!

Yes. My middle child is the one I think will be the shortest and he will probably be taller than me but not by much.

I don't know!
I'm only 5'1" and some change not much taller than you, Emma. So, it might be likely! DH is only 5'7", so he's not especially tall... she's doomed!

I believe they will be. I'm only 5'1" and DH is only 5'8" but we both have really tall people in our blood families. DD is only 6 and is already 45.5" tall which while not tall is towering over where I was at her age.

Oh I think so. I'm only 5'4". Rodger is about 5'11" so they probably will be.
