- Calculate your projected height. Working in inches or centimeters, you can try to predict your height based on the height of your parents.
- Add up your mom and dad’s heights (in inches or cm).
- Add 5 inches (13 cm) if you’re a boy; subtract 5 inches (13 cm) if you’re a girl.
- Divide by 2.
- The answer is your predicted height, give or take 4 inches. Note that this isn’t an absolute calculation, but it should be pretty close.
The realistic mama says: This is a delightfully simplified way to chronicle life’s special moments without the time commitment usually required by scrapbooking. The best news – you can start today!
A cute idea going around is to decorate a wall in your nursery with an alphabet – like pictured below (pics randomly found on google). A friend of mine was invited to a baby shower and the smart party planner asked everyone invited to bring a specific letter.. in my friend’s case, she was asked to bring a ‘U’. I think she is going to take a horseshoe to give the expecting parents for the letter ‘U’. Genius!!
You can find un-decorated letters at your local craft store – or search around for letters in your environment (like the horseshoe!)
