The fastest growing nephew, Kalin.


Megan, Kalin and Kai were in town this weekend for a quickie trip from Houston. It seems like every time I see Kalin he has grown an inch or two. This time was no different. I am 5'11 3/4", and Kalin as a 13 year old is EXACTLY THE SAME!! I knew the day would come, but I didn't think it would be this soon! He's a seventh grader! Holy moly! He's lucky to be getting so tall - since height goes great with being a fabulous athlete. He has also been MVP on his basketball team at school this year. I can brag about my nephew, can't I? I love this boy dearly. He is so important to me, and even though he is out-growing me, he will always be sweet little Kalin.

Kalin is a 5-yr. old, forever in my mind. This is craziness. We are sooooooo old!!! I wish I had the tall gene.

Erin...I think you are 5"11 and 4/4ths... Just admit...you are 6 foot!

Kalin and Kai loved seeing you.

It trips me out even more to be looking smack dab into my son's eyes. I am going to need many massages as my neck is going to be hurting after a few more months...Megan

I always round my height up, and my nephew isn't even three feet tall yet. ;) That's gotta be weird! And I'm glad to see you in cyberspace.

This is how it's going to be with me and Lauren when she is 4. It's crazy how kids grow up so fast.
