My family has gotten shorter through the last couple of generations. However, my daughter is almost 5 and is more than half as tall as me already and I'm a little over 5'8". My son is 9 months old, but bigger than my daughter was at the same age, so I dunno.

The reason for this thread is that a friend of mine, a woman 5’11” tall, told me that Texans were shorter than the people from her home state of Kentucky. I found that odd. Isn’t everything bigger in Texas?

But after I thought about it for a while I came up with my theory of why the average height in Texas is decreasing. Is it decreasing?
