It's Official!

Son L is taller than me.

Three months ago he was an inch and a half shorter than me, and I predicted that he would pass me up by Christmas.  Sure enough, in the last week or so it happened.  At 5' 8" and with lots of hair, I couldn't make myself tall enough to match him.

This is the "unofficial" picture.  We did the official measurements against the wall.

He is delighting in the thought that I have to look up to him now!

I have been dreading to do that test with Princess S. I fear the same results! But I knew it would happen as soon as she passed up her older sister two years ago. But, I have to keep thinking that she is merely growing (and not that I am shrinking!)

The oldest here is about 4 inches taller than me now. It's actually nice have his strong body and muscles around. He likes using them to help too.
