There is such a huge range. There is one boy in my son's class who only weighs 26 lbs; my son weighs 44 lbs and is 44" tall. He is one of the tallest. Many of his friends are in the 42-44" range and 38-45 lbs, but we definitely know a bunch that are smaller.

My oldest son, at 4y/o: 43 inches & 41lbs

My youngest son, at 4y/o: 42 inches & 39 lbs

~That was fun looking up their stats in their baby books...haven't looked in awhile!

At 4 years old, my son was 44" tall.
Forget his exact weight, but his weight percentile was about 55%.
Tall lean boy.

My son is 5 now recently, and he is 48" tall. And if I recall I think his weight was about 50 lbs.

I think he was a touch over 36" this summer (as measured by the rides at the boardwalk!) and his pants are shorter so either he grew since then or they shrunk. Both are possible.
