Honey, I'm 29 and 5'2". You are right around the median height for your age. I'm including a link to a age/height chart for you. The age is done in months, so you need to figure out how many months old you are (kinda silly, I know), but take 13x12+(however many months since your last birthday)=your age in months. You are 62" tall. The average height for a 13 year old girl is between 5'1" and 5'3". Don't worry. Girls can continue growing into their late 20's. A lot of how tall you are will also depend on how tall your parents and grandparents are.
