Miniature Children No Longer

It's no secret that my birth children are of diminutive stature. Steve and I take the blame entirely - we were both exceedingly late bloomers and our poor boys inherited all that and then some. Fortunately, they're both large of spirit if not of stature, so they take it all in stride, but we find it continually humorous that our Chinese daughter continues to lead the family in height-by-age.

There are plenty of benefits to being a late bloomer. For example, clothes last longer because one doesn't grow out of them. But over the past few months I've noticed that the boys pants are magically transforming into clamdiggers. We recently updated our height chart and, check it out, Ben has grown a full 5" in the last year! No wonder that boy takes so many naps!

So, of course, we had to do another back-to-back-to-back measurement test and it has finally happened... my boys have surpassed me in stature.

Well done, boys, well done.
