dh/so/father?
is little one taking after your height or daddy's height so far?




i'm barely passing 5'2 and my husband is 6'1.
carlos is already 33-34inches (he makes it hard to get his exact height most days) tall and slender..he seems to be taking after his daddy's body type...thankfully. i'm a shortie and need tongs or spoon to reach the top shelf in my kitchen

Both. She is off the charts at like 36" tall. 99th %ile. I think she will be fully 6' tall like my grandma was. DH and I both have very tall genes!! No shorties in either of our families, going back to grandparents and aunts/uncles.

Im 5ft 9 my hubbys 6ft 2ish. . ..
lol our baby is tall. He was 33 inches tall at 11 months. He's 14 months now, not positive how tall he is, there are pictures that I look ridiculous holding him lol
anyway, but I guess since we are both tall, he takes after us both.

tall ladies and tall babies!
carlos was in the 76th percentile in height for his age at his last appt, but you ladies have much taller babies.
i'm hispanic and my grandmother has inca genes and my great grandmother was a dark dark little mayan lady...she didn't even make it to 4 feet 11..i was bound to be a shortie! thankfully my husband's genes are contributing to carlos' height.

how tall are you? Like 5'10.5". Lol. I am really not 5'11", but I am taller than 5'10". I like that extra half inch
dh/so/father? 5'8" on a good day
is little one taking after your height or daddy's height so far? Liam is in the middle. He is in the 70th percentiles for height, which isn't short but isn't hugely tall either. I estimate he will be close to 6' fully grown, maybe 5'11". DHs family is ALL short (mom is only 4'10", bro is only 5'6", dad is about 5'8"). So he did get some of their genes to combine with my "giant" genes. Kieran takes after my side of the family. He is a 90 percentiler...often up close to 100 for both height and weight. He takes after my youngest brother who is 6'6" or a bit taller. My other brother is also really tall at 6'3". I def think Kieran will be as tall as at least my shorter brother.

I'm 5'3, hubby is 6'3

Both kids are tall like their dad, but me and my siblings tend to be very tall and lanky until we reach puberty, where we end up growing out instead of up. I definitely think Eliana has my husband's family's body type, I think Eli's going to have mine, but maybe not because there are some crazy tall lanky people on hubby's side.

I'm 5'8". DH is 6'.
Aiden is short for his age, but he's taking after his daddy's growth pattern. DH was short until high school. Aiden has a long torso with short legs, just like his daddy.
Zoe is already 25" tall, which is waaay taller than her brother was at this age. Funnily enough she was way shorter than him at birth!

We are both on the short side... I am 5'3" and DH is 5'10". Eleanor has been hanging out right at the 50th percentile since birth, so I'm not sure where she'll end up. Maybe around the same height as me?
