A sad and serious announcement for today.

I have a very sad and serious announcement for today.

I don't know if everyone will be able to handle it.  I certainly couldn't.  After discovering the truth of this situation, I couldn't help but break down.  In fact, everyone around me did as well.  It's just... so, so sad.

As of March, 2012...

I am...

...the shortest child in my family.

Yes, even my twelve-year-old brother is taller than me now.

It was a hard thing to accept, but Luke is growing quickly.  And he didn't have much height to beat, anyways.

I mean, I don't know if I've shared this with you all, but I have a mini photo series on Facebook called "I'm too short to reach the mirror at a public place."  So far, there are three parts.

PART I: I'm too short to reach the mirror in the jewelry department at JC Penney.

PART II: I'm too short to reach the mirror in the bathroom at On the Border.

PART III: I'm too short to reach the mirror in the bathroom at a local steakhouse when I went out of town for a vacation.

How tall are you?


  1. Awww. So sad. I'm 5'1" and my 12 year old sister passed me a few weeks ago.

    So, how tall are you?

  2. Emily, you had me going! I was so worried about you! The very next day after I found this beautiful shining candle, some terrible thing had happened to her! It's amazing how many tragedies I dreamed up in just the few seconds it took to scroll down and see what it was about!

    I'm about 6' 1/4" in the morning, and down to 5' 11 1/2" by evening.

  3. Hahaha aww that is pretty sad :) I've got a least a year before my 13 year old brother outgrows me though becuase I'm 5'9 :D Haha it'll be pretty gutting though because I have ALWAYS been the tallest child :'(

  4. I'm 14 and I am 5'7.

  5. I'm almost 5'8" and my 12-year-old brother is taller than me at like 5'10" or something. My 13-year-old brother (who passed me up when he was like 11 or something) is super close to 6 feet now. I was always tall for my age, but then in 8th grade the boys I knew finally started growing and I wasn't bigger and stronger than them anymore, haha. Now I look at family pictures and I stand between my ginormously large 12- and 13-year-old brothers and I finally look short. I guess I always wanted to be short anyways, haha...

  6. I am 18, almost 19, and 5'0 exactly.

    i don't mind. :)

  7. I'm only 4'10.5", and my seven year old nephew is taller than me now. That mirror stuff drives me nuts! If I want to try on a pair of sunglasses I have to travel half-around a story to find a full length mirror!

  8. I'm 5'6 and 13 :) one of my teachers at school is taller than me... aawwkkwarrdd ;)

  9. I'm 5'11 and I too was devastated when my younger brother beat me in height 4 years ago, now he's 6'5. Yes, I have a tall family, my brother is one inch taller than my dad.
