Well almost! DD hit 5'5" I swear overnight! She is now maybe less than an inch shorter than me. I am stunned at it. This is the baby I nursed and lugged around on my hip. When she woke up in the morning as a toddler, all dh and I would see is the top of her curls coming down the hallway. And now we fight over clothes and shoes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Holy smokes time flies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

It's so weird cuddling with her because I can think back all those years when she fit so perfect in my arms. Time does indeed fly!

Your dd is a tall one! It's funny that even though dd is almost as tall as me, she still (bless her wonderful heart) wants to cuddle like she always did. Just now I'm likely to lose feeling in parts of my body <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My DS takes great delight in looking over my head, and I'm 5'9". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> He does it every day to me.<br><br>
Even standing on my toes, I can not look eye to eye with him. I think the same things as you, where did my little guy go? It's a good thing we have photos!<br><br>
He is a lot like my side of the family, and will probably end up around 6'2".<br><br>
It is weird to be the parent of a 'soon to be man', as well as little children.

sometimes i feel like the only one in this bracket.. even though i know i'm not..<br>
my(almost)15yr old ds is now TALLER than dad(6ft)...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: .. dads having a VERY hard time with this issue and swears its cause he is shrinking or something is wrong..lol<br><br>
my 13yr old dd is nose to nose with me..i TRY telling her its just cause my 7mo preggy belly is pulling my back out of line... what do i use for an excuse in 2 months?????<br><br>
my almost 10yr old son, i cant see over his head anymore...and he is already wearing a size 8 1/2-9 mens shoe..yikes!!!! i think he'll hit 6'4" like my brother and he is already almost as broad in the shoulders as me(and i'm broad) and has a thick chest and everything.. definelty a BIG boy in the growing.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Ironicly.. when preg with him, the Dr told me he may be a dwarf because full term i was only 26cm ......<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
it is sooo amazing to think, it seems like you were just born.. especially since in our house we have little ones who everyone asks "when did i...." to compare out of curiousity when they did things and when each kid is doing things... so it keeps the baby days fresher in our minds too i think.

Well, I can console myself with the thought that my girls willl never borrow my clothes, even when they get to be my height. I don't expect either of them to wear a 2X during their teen years!

One of my twin sons grew an inch in a week - and has the stretch marks on his back to prove it.<br><br>
Now, at age 12, they are both 5'9" (at last measure - probably taller now), to my 5'4". I keep reminding them that while they might be taller, I'll always be older!<br><br>
And they wore size 10 shoes at age 10. They haven't outgrown shoes not for almost a year, so I'm hoping that the feet have sllowed down, while the rest of their bodies catch up!

What a sweet thread <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
My 18yr old is barely 5 ft (I'm 5 5) and teensy. I doubt she would wear any of my clothes! LOL But she DOES like my bracelets and anklets....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

2/3 of mine are taller than me, and I'm 5'8". My daughter will probably outgrow me in a couple of years too! They're so proud of themselves when they can look down on you too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I've been looking at my dd through the same eyes lately too. Wow, my little girl is now my height and can wear my shoes!! Time does fly and I am savouring (sp?) those cuddle moments, hugs and kisses even more these days.

Before I got pregnant ds and I took the same size of clothes! I was kind of weird! Dd can't wait to share clothes with me and that will probably only be a year or two. It's fun actually but I can't believe these tall people are mine.

Thank you - I need this line today! DD turns 12 today; she has been taller than me for at least 2 years. We measured last night; she's 5'10", I'm 5'6". This is bad enough, but YoungSon, who turns 11 in 2 weeks, is fully one foot shorter, and weighs half. She's only a year older, for Pete's sake! She is even taller than 25 year old ElderSon. It is all too much.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
