A Two Year Old Toddler Is Half His Adult Height62,570 views
When we first heard this from my sister in-law (the pediatric dentist), we thought she was crazy. We said maybe more like three times the height but definitely not twice the height. That’s what we thought until we tested it on our niece who was almost three at the time. It turned out that when we doubled her height she was almost six and half feet tall!
Well my son just turned two in mid November and we decided to test the theory. Here is a photo of us measuring our sons height in mid-November.
As you could see he is 34″ tall. If you double that height you get to 68″ which translates to 5 feet 8 inches tall. Our pediatrician told us recently that while the theory is true the height isn’t exactly when the child is 24 months old. The child might reach half their adult height when they are either 23 months old or 25 months. Either way, this is pretty cool.
Now here is a picture of how tall he will be when he is an adult. I’m 5′ 11″ so it seems he will be a bit shorter. I just hope that he will still be as cute.
