Harlem Globetrotters, here we come

Do they grow in their freaking sleep?

On 5/26/05, Michael was just under 44 inches tall. This morning, I went to put on his 5 slim jeans, which he hasn't worn since Sunday. They were too short and wouldn't snap. I thought maybe it was just that pair, so I tried another. No dice. Tried 5 regular, and they would snap, but were way too short. I had to go get the 6 slims out of the closet!!!!

We decided to do another measurement and Michael was 46 1/2 inches!!!!!! The kid is almost FOUR FEET TALL and he's only 4 1/2!!!!

Matthew did grow a lot in the same period. He was 42 1/2 on 5/26/05 and is now just over 45 inches. He just hasn't grown out of a clothing size in as matter of days.

Why do they grow so fast?

Looking at this growth chart Michael is now average height for a 6 1/2 year old, and Matthew is avergae height for someone almost 6 years old. Need I say over 100% for their age? But they are within range (about 80%) for 4 1/2 year olds on weight. Yes - they are TALL and SKINNY.

Anyone got any slim clothes they want to get rid of???
