I am 6'1 now 43yrs old. I was a late bloomer I was 5'0 when I finished 8th grade but I had a growth spurt and grew 6inches over the summer before 9th grade and got to my current height by the time I was 18. The growth spurt around 14yrs runs in my family my father had one as well but he is only 5'10. I had two uncles on my fathers side who were 6'2-3 so thats where I got my height from.

I'm a shade or hair under 6'3". I was 5 feet tall when I entered junior high school and did all of my growing in 3 years. By the time I was a sophomore, I was close to my present height. I'll be 39 this coming Thursday. And I am taller than both my parents but I had a grandfather that was 6'5" and some uncles that were over 6'3".

6'1" since 19 yrs. old. It seems like everyone is much shorter than me to me.
