How Did That Happen?

One of our favourites at Wicksteed Park is the race track with these little cars, but the leg length needed to reach the accelerator means they have a height requirement of 160cm (5 feet 3 inches). When we last visited two years ago, Angel - then thirteen and a half - was not quite tall enough to drive on her own.

Yesterday, Star - just turned twelve - measured in comfortably at the required height. How did that happen? I knew she had been growing, but had no idea she had grown that much! Angel has just overtaken me in height (5 feet 5 inches to my 5 feet 4 1/2), but it looks as though Star is on track to beat us both before too long.

Cherub, on the other hand, is still a petite little person, measuring in at 95cm (3 feet 1 1/2 inches) - which would be comfortably average if she only was a year younger! According to the growth chart in her baby book she is on course to just about top 5 feet as an adult.
