Leverett just passed two and 1/2 years old last week, so I got out a ruler and measured his height.
There are probably lots of “wives tales” about how to find the adult height of your children. But I like this one the best. If you have a boy, measure their height when they are 2 1/2 years old, then double it to get their adult height. If you have a girl, measure their height when they are 2, and then double it to get their adult height.
So, Rett checked in at 40 inches, which, when doubled, puts him at 6 feet 8 inches tall as an adult. I am going to have to adjust all my doorways so he can walk through them without too many headaches. Heck, I may have to put in lighting in his bedroom that is flush with the ceiling, and for sure no ceiling fans in there (keep in mind our upstairs ceiling height is about 7 feet 6 inches feet).
Going back to July 2007, we have Gus checking in to be 5’10” and Kase clocking in for 6’4″. I figured Rett would be our biggest, but I never thought of him rounding to 7 feet. In terms of NBA, the tallest player is 7’6, the shortest is 5’5″, with the average overall being 6’7″.
So, how tall will your children be?!?
