In brief: It depends

According to the cdc, the 50% for length in an 8 month old male is 70 cm (27.
5 inches). The 95% is 75 cm (29.5 inches) and the 5% is 66 cm (26 inches). Normal for an 8 month old in most situations is between 66 and 75 cm and depends on the size of the parents. Taller parents should have taller children. http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/set1clinical/cj41c017.pdf.
