I wanted a growth chart that was sturdy and lasting, but could be moved from house to house, wherever life takes us. So my sweet and talented husband made me this...
He painted it, including the checkerboard, and fixed it all up in honor of our favorite UT Vols and the upcoming season which starts in four weeks. I did the ruler part. Don't lay any bets on its accuracy! But it's close enough for me. We finished it yesterday, and Jim hung it up on the wall. Then last night we stood all the kids up and marked their heights for the first time. Easier said than done, by the way! I would also not place any bets on the accuracy of my measurements. It's incredibly hard to measure a wiggly 1-year-old who just wants to either sit down or look up to see what you're doing with the pen!
I'm so happy with it! It makes me smile every time I look at it. And I love the idea of charting my grandchildren on there someday!
So here they all are, somewhere around 2ft 3-4in. And yes, I'll brag a minute...I freehanded the numbers with a Sharpie. I'm pretty proud of myself!
