Have you heard the little trick that if you measure your child's height when they turn two, that this will be half their adult height??
It seems like there is a fair amount of accuracy to it, (give or take a few inches) and so I was super excited to measure Madeleine when she had her 2nd Birthday last month.
We did it when my niece was 2, which was almost three years ago already, and she was exactly half of my height, approximating her to be 5'10 when she's an adult. It seems like she's on track for this too, Lahna is a complete string bean!!!
I was so excited to see what height Maddie would be, and so I made her a growth chart ready for her 2nd Birthday.
Knowing that we're going to moving around a bit throughout our childrens' lives, we can't rely on the one trusty doorframe to mark out their growing heights.
So I made a fabric height chart that could travel around with us and mark out our little family as it grows.
So as soon as the hustle and bustle of her Bunny Party calmed down, we got to measuring our little girl....
And little she is... and will be!
Miss Madeleine measured.... 82cm, or 2 feet 8 inches.
Which will put her at a petite 5"4 when she's an adult!!!! We may need to re-think our retirement plans of raising an Australian Tennis Pro!
I do think its entirely cute to think about her already being half her full height, even if she doesn't end up being super tall.
I was so self-conscious about being tall growing up, so maybe she'll be able to be all cute and petite and be the ballerina I could never be!
Did you measure your kids when they were 2?? I'd love to hear from anyone who did this and who's kids have grown up to hear whether it really is true!!
