AwesomeCloud grew two inches. In a month.
(I convinced my pediatrician to give me a copy of his growth chart. I was tired of hearing height/weight numbers thrown at me without proper context. Whoa. The kid ate some magic beans!)
(His daddy says if he keeps growing like that, he'll be as tall as Yao Ming. How tall is Yao Ming? I want to calculate how long it would take him, at two inches a month.)
(Okay, Yao Ming is 7'5" tall. At his current rate of growth, AwesomeCloud will reach Yao Ming's height in February, 2012, one month shy of his fourth birthday.)
(That means that, by human growth standards, two inches in a month is... freakish.)
Correction: It actually took him 5.5 weeks to grow 2 inches. That means he'll be as tall as Yao Ming before he is six. Still pretty freakish.
