It seemed to me that a couple of the kids have recently gone through another growth spurt (at least it's at the time of a seasonal shift, so I'd probably need to get them some new clothes anyway) and so I took measurements today.

S is still 5'1" and will probably stick there for the rest of her years in spite of her disappointment.  At least she got to be tallest for a few years.

H is now 5'0" at 12.  So there is still hope that he'll grow a lot more -- he always ran a bit on the short side so he's been really worried about that.

Z, who is always neck-and-neck with H in height despite two years' age difference, is 4'11" -- but I'm not sure he's had a spurt yet this warming-weather season.

J has grown two inches since I last measured her just before Christmas and now she's a whopping 4'2".  She has tall birth parents, so it's possible she may beat out a couple of the boys.

O is still steadily increasing bit by bit and has finally reached 3'10".  His birthparents are on the short side and he has always been in about the 15-20th percentile for height and weight, so my prediction is that he'll possibly be in the shortest two of our kids come adulthood.

  1. Well, at least they can rest in the knowledge that we don't really hold stature against anyone!
