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.
