Augustus just passed two and 1/2 years old this 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, Gus checked in at 35 inches, which, when doubled, puts him at 5 feet 10 inches tall as an adult. That is not quite as tall as me, but taller than his uncle Tojo!
And, I haven’t seen that I posted when Kasimir was 2 1/2 years old (please correct me if you can find a previous post about this). Kase was 38 inches, putting him at a whopping 6 feet 4 inches as an adult. Way taller than almost all of our close family.
So, how tall will your children be?!?
