My daughter (4 in feb) is about 20kg and size 10 - 11 shoe (not sure of her height) and we thought she was big...  laugh.gif

Your son is going to be a tall boy.

Edit: I measured her and she is 108cm tall

At the start of the year he was a chunky monkey, he has grown 17cm since march, so he's not looking as chunky anymore but is still a big boy  laughing2.gif

My son will be 4 on Christmas Eve.

I haven't measured him since mid-September but he was 101cm and 15.5kg then. He weighed himself last week and he was still 15.5kg.

He is in size 7 or 8 in shoes.

Yep. DD1 is going into a size 12 in Year 2 and DD1 in fyos is in a size 10. My big problem is length. DD2 is forever showing her middrift and I (and she) hates it. DD1 has the problem of forever showing her ankles laughing2.gif

We bought DD's uniform dress for school next year, we bought the smallest size they make and it goes down to her ankles and is about twice as wide as she is. It is very funny. Her sports uniform shorts go to her mid calf to.

I think she must be due a growth spurt. She hasn't grown much in the last 18 months.

Although I know you are meaning to be funny, its actually not funny having a larger then average child. They are expected to act older as they look older. I have a typical 6 year old who has typical 6 year old behavior including tears, tantrums and the like but because she is bigger then most of her older sister's friends, she is looked down upon and told she is "naughty". This has been the case her whole life. As a 24 hour old newborn I had a stranger compare her to a 4 day old petite little thing and call her a "whopper" and act all incredulous at her age as if I was lying. It is not nice as her parent to watch and have to say time and time again, "she is only "X" years old, give her a break"

My 4 yr old DD is 98cms and weighs 14 kilos.  She is in size 3-4 clothes and size 6 shoes.  Hard finding clothes and shoes for her that arent too babyish lol.  When she starts her FYOS next year, her uniform is huge.  We make light-weights here

yeah, except the tallest and biggest child is actually the OP's.

DS will be 4 three days before Christmas. He is 107 cms and 20.5 kg. Size 5 clothes because his arms, midriff and legs are just getting too long for size 4, although he has lots of room round the waist.. Size 11 or 12 shoes. MASSIVE head (7 yr old hats)

Given that I was 5'8 (172 cms) by the time I was 12 and DH is 6"1 (181 cms) with brothers that are 6"5 and 6"7. I think we can pretty safely say that DS is going to be a tall man.

It's even worse when they have a speech delay which puts them a bit back socially, so not only do they look older, they act younger. Also when they have a tantrum people judge much more because they think DS is more like 5 when in fact he's not even 4. When DS started pre-kindy the kids who were about to go to school would try and talk to him because they thought he was their age, then when DS would try and talk to them, they'd look at me, say "I can't understand him" and walk off. Really didn't help his confidence.
Thank goodness the speech is picking up a bit now original.gif
