My paternal line is Swedish, and they are gnomes basically. My grandfather was a gen 2 American, he was maybe 5’ 4”. My dad got to maybe 5’ 8, I got to 5’ 11”, this no doubt attributable to mixing with Anglos and Germans. My elder son is going to be a shorty though.
We do got this Nordic Tom Cruise kewpie doll handsome thing going on, so there’s that.
