2 years old, 88.5cm tall

I tried to measure Oliver's height today. It wasn't supoer-accurate, but according to the mark I made on the kitchen door-frame, he is 88.5cm (just under 2 feet 11 inches).

So now all we have to do is wait about 18 years to see whether the old wives tale about him being half his final height today is true. I have my doubts that he will only grow to 5 feet 10 inches. He has always been assessed as tall for his age, an assessment that seems borne out by his stature alongside his peers. We'll see, eventually.
