Is my children doomed to be short? Any short mothers, have children who are average or above average in height?

I'm 4'11, and my kids father is 6'2. Our daughter is 11 months old and only 27 inches, despite being born at 20 inches.

    I'm 5'4" and my husband is 6'4".

    Our girls are 5'4" and 5'4 1/2"

    Our daughter who is 5'4" was barely on the growth charts all throughout her childhood.  All projections based on current growth at the time showed her, at most, getting to 5'2".

    Your daughter may or may not be short as an adult, but current height isn't enough to go on.

    My mom had a short mother and a tall father. She came out average. Her brother came out tall. Her sister came out short. So there's really no way to know.
