    When DS was two, the doctor told me he'd be 6'4". Guess what? He's 6'4" & has been since he was a sophomore in HS!

    The doctor said you can pretty much double their height at age 2 & that's what they'll be when they grow up. Worked for us! :)

    Thanks Pags, that's the one I was looking for. My boys should be between 5'8 and 6'1 according to that. Big range! The dr. said they will be 6'3, but I think that's a bit tall considering I'm 5'4 and dh is 5'10.

    I don't know if the average is really anything to go on. I was always tall until high school and just stopped at 5'7'', my siblings were all average in grade school- my sister only reached 4'11'', both of my brothers only reached 5'7" as well. My children were always average height and my daughter reached 5'5" by 5 grade and that was it she's now 22. My son however really sprouted in high school and at 20 is 6'6 1/2" at age 20 so he may not be done yet.
