@Moochnoodles, growing up my son was terrified that he would be short like me, and described my height as “ somewhere between a midget and a normal person”. On his 13th birthday in September he was 5’3. By the end of that school year he was 5’11. He grew so fast it was literally painful. And the voice change seemingly happened overnight as well. It was pretty amazing. After that year is growth slowed down and he ended up 6’2. I have heard they reach puberty about the same age their dad did?
