What is the formula for predicting height?
"I used to have, but have since lost, a formula for predicting height. 
This is a scientific formula and does not involve x-raying the fibula or
any other bone.  You simply measure a child at a certain age, convert to
centimeters and plug that number into either the male or female formula.

If I remember correctly take the height in cm at 2.5 years old and that 
should give you an approx height for an adult.

My Question is ..What is this formula ? My situation is that I have an
adopted boy 23 mo.s old. He is currently 37" tall. My wife and I would love
to have a little insight into his possible future.
Thank You
