Meet my....

My lanky Orchid
daughter the GiAnT!  Yep... that's right my daughter is going to be one tall ass mama. Today was LDG's 2 year check up. We did what we did at your usual check up and then it was time for the height and weight measurements. Now.... I knew my daughter was a little over average in the height department.  Most people I encounter think she is 3 instead of 2 but I had no idea that she would measure in height a whopping 36 1/2 inches!  Yep that is no typo. She is in the 99% percentile for height
The pediatrician commented that my toddler is all legs which she is - it is scary to watch but her little chubby baby legs have formed into some long ass toddler legs.  Her weight was right on target for her height at 30 pounds (85%}.  So I then ask the Dr. what she thinks LDG's height might be in the future and she said we are looking at 5"10 quite possibly 5'11. HOLY shit...really? Wow OK...I knew she would not be a petite flower my hubby is 6'1 and I am 5'9 but the possibility of her being 5'11 kind of scares me I am not going to lie. Kids are cruel and I remember the crap I had to deal with when I got my tallness spurt in 4th grade I really do not want her to go through that. My baby is growing into a healthy beautiful little girl and hubby and I could not be more proud. Now we have to make sure we keep the sassy attitude in check and this ride from 2-3 we are hoping will be a smooth one. So far besides a few melt downs I have not seen this terrible 2 thing yet......Shit did I just jinx myself? OH damn.......

my daughter is the same way -- everyone thinks she is 3 & she TOWERS over all the other 2 year olds.

as tall mama's who know how cruel kiddos can be -- i used to get asked ALL the time if i failed a grade or was the subsitute teacher in FIFTH grade & NO boys like a gal a full foot taller than them... oy!

but we are raising powerful, confident daughters who will rock their height with pride!

my mother was never any help & actually told me to slouch once...*shakes head*

LDG is too adorable! I can't sympathize with the tall, as I was always too short. My best friend was always tall. She always told guys that they couldn't handle her and then they stopped caring how tall she was...lol

We did the unfortunate 4's. It was like mother nature's cruel joke for surviving 2 and 3 and bragging about it. :(
