    I've been using WP for six months and found out that my DB is over 4GB!
    I'm not doing anything crazy. One author, two or three posts a day, one picture, that's it.
    With these tables being the bigger ones:
    _options 2.1 MiB
    _posts 1.5 MiB
    _postmeta 555KiB

    Is this typocal wordpress DB size for a 6month old baby ;)?

    2.1MB + 1.5MB + 555KB is just over 4MB, not 4GB. Is there something else in your database?

    Otherwise, your tables are NOT really that big.

    MB = megabytes
    GB = gigabytes

    Also note you might want to consider repairing or optimizing your tables via phpMyAdmin.
