I'm wondering if you have a cultivar that is not bred for height or perhaps they're just having a slow first year. Try feeding the plants with a nitrogen-heavy fertilizer in the spring. You may also want to review the growing conditions listed in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/crepe-myrtle-care.htm
