In the first year or so, your turtle should reach about 4 inches, given normal environment and genetics. After the first year, your turtle should grow about 1 inch per year until they stop growing. A full grown male is often 7-9 inches and a female is 9-12 inches. That would imply that a male should be full grown around ages 4-6 and a female ages 6-9.
blulite, if your turtle grew 0.5 inches in 2 months, that's just a little rapid for growth. Can you specify what you are feeding? I think you may be feeding a little too much protein. If you have retain scutes, you may want to take a look at your basking and lighting for your tank as well.
