The Race of Height

When you have a house full of boys, that are close in age, there seems to be a competition for everything. Even something that can't be controlled, like height.

Per doctor predictions, Capps with be the tallest (5' 10"/11") and Mac will be the shortest (5' 7") and Tavis and Daegan will probably be about the same in the middle somewhere (5' 9").

We periodically measure on the door frame in the kitchen. I know that the ages of the boys means they are going to grow like weeds for a little while, but this seems a little crazy to me.

In the last year:

Mollee grew a 1/2 inch
Tavis grew 4 1/2 inches
Daegan grew 4 1/4 inches
Capps grew 3 inches
and Mac grew 3 1/2 inches

In the last THREE months, Tavis and Daegan both grew 1 1/2 inches. WHAAAT?!?

So, at the end of May 2016, here are the heights recorded:

Mollee 5' 2 3/4" (she wants to say 5' 3", but I'm not allowing it)
Tavis 5' 5 1/2" (passed Mommy)
Daegan 5' 1 1/2 " (almost passing Mollee)
Capps 4' 10"
Mac 4' 2 1/2"
