That is ABSOLUTELY the wrong method for determining board size!!!!! Forget that method, it's garbage!

Go to the board manufacturer's web site and check the weight/size range scale for the model(s) you/your wife are interested in! Same for your daughter! Although for her you may get away with sizing up a bit if she is still growing significantly year to year!!
You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!
