Answered Prayers

When Lamb was born, she was 6lbs.10ozs and 21 inches long. She was long and thin. She remains long & thin. When people see her, they always comment on how tall she is. Yet, she's not tall at all; she gives the illusion of being tall. She is always in the 5th percentile in height. And in weight, she's even less than that. As a matter of fact, she doesn't even register on the curve. At one point, the dr wanted to do some testing if she didn't gain any weight. Luckily, next visit, she had gained some & he realized she IS growing & gaining. She's just a tiny girl.

My prayer has always been, "Please, let her be taller than me." It's my prayer for both kids. ;) I am only 5 feet. And while it hasn't harmed my life any, I would certainly love for my kids to be taller than that.

Yesterday, Big D measured Lamb. We knew she had a major growth spurt last year. And, even though she looked taller than me, she kept hovering right below me. However, yesterday, we found out that she has passed me up! She is now almost 5'2"! I am thrilled! I figure she isn't finished growing yet so maybe she'll be 5'3". Or, dare I dream, 5'4"!

Keep sleeping & eating, Lamb!

My daughter has had a goal to be taller than me.
I am 5'8", and she is 5'7". She's hoping for a late growth spurt, but chances are at age 20, she's done growing.
She will always have to look UP to me!


My hubby is 6'4", and my son is 6'4". He hopes to grow taller and surpass his dad.

When I'm around little women like you, I feel like an amazon woman. I don't mind being on the tall side, but it wasn't fun when I was in elementary school. I grew fast and was TALL from fourth grade on. Now, I wouldn't mind growing to be 6 feet tall. That would help me spread some fat over a larger area.


I guess you'll be looking UP to Lamb from now on.

Wow! Congrats... I guess to both of you!

People often comment that my youngest looks tall, but I think it's because she is so thin too :)

And keep growing like a weed! I say she should shoot for 5'6", beating the average size for a woman by a couple of inches. (This from a 5'2" woman.)

Her 2 yr height doubled is 5'6" but I can't even think about that coming true. Needless to say, I'd be thrilled for her!

Idk, I've always thought the petite women were the prettiest women, D. But if you insist, I will join you in saying a prayer she will continue with her spurt! She's beautiful either way, but then again, so is her mama.

Hehehehehe - you make me giggle. No matter how tall they grow to be - they've each got 'fabulous' packed into every inch ;-)
