It would be so nice if moms could magically tell exactly what their babies will be like as they get older. It's impossible not to be curious about everything from their personality, to their intelligence, to their size. For the most part, parents have to wait and see, but they can also make some educated guesses. If you're wondering about your baby's height, for example, there are some signs your baby is going to be tall that you can watch out for. (Of course, none of them are foolproof and only time will tell.)
I can definitely speak to this being a total crapshoot. As the product of a 5'2" mother and a 6'2" father, my height genes apparently came from my mom, as I share her short stature. I've spent a lot of money in my lifetime having clothes hemmed to my tiny frame. Then again, if it had gone the other way I'd be complaining about all the pants that didn't quite reach my ankle. Such is life, right?
Here are a few signs that your baby could grown up to be tall, though obviously they'll be just perfect no matter where they fall on the growth chart.
