While visiting my grandsons in California in fall 2012, I saw a different height chart posted on their bedroom wall. It depicts a tall redwood tree similar to the redwoods in their backyard. I smiled and thought back to the times I had stood by the old pink and blue So-Hi chart while my parents measured me.
I will bring it with me to California next week. My daughter and I can have fun comparing her heights, my heights, and her sons' heights at various ages. My sister, too, can view these photos. I see that she reached 3 feet 4 1/2 inches at age 4, just slightly taller than my daughter's height at age 4. I can also see that both of them grew rapidly in the next few months. One of my grandsons is now 4 and a half. I can hardly wait to see how tall he has become.
