Same here, but Cancer.
That makes you just a little bit older than me...

    Let's see...

    I'm 36, a Cancer, and 4'11'' Most people think I'm in my early 20's though. It's the chipmunk cheeks.

    Yep, I'm so short I need to hem petite pants! And to be honest, I'm only 4'11'' if I stand really, really straight and slightly up on my toes..

    I'm a 24 year old Gemini out here on the West Coast, also somewhat vertically challenged at 5'3".
    Not once in my life has my train of thought taken a straight path between point A and point B without stopping to visit Y and F along the way.

    Gemini that has shrunk.  I know I always was 5'0"  and now my Doc says I am 4'11". I asked him to put 4'11 3/4 on his paperwork.

    I guess my daughter is the shortest at 4'10 1/2"  She added the 1/2 inch herself and sometimes will say she's 4'11", but I know that's not true.  She stopped growing when she was 10.  

    I'm the tallest woman in my family at 5'2-1/2", if we don't count creeping shrinkage.

    Being vertically challenged has its advantages... "Honey, can you come get this down/put this up for me? I can't reach it."  ;D

    Pants are NEVER too short!! So much easier to hem than to lengthen!!

    She's not a "Honey, can you come get this" person but her hubby would be happier if she were.  Her poor DH came home one day when she was eight months pregnant (and on someone her size, you can imagine the size of the belly), to find her standing on the countertop, reaching for the top of the upper cabinets.  My SIL is prematurely gray.

    My husband turned 85 on October 31.

    Hey, My birthday is also October 31.  It's nice to hear of another Pumpkin Baby.  Being born on Halloween, when I was little I thought I was a witch, I just couldn't figure out how to use my powers.
