2 year stats

Lil Max went to the doctor today for his 2 year check up. He 'passed' with flying colors... here are the latest stats:

Height = 34.5 inches (55%) - so if you follow the multiply by 2 trick, that would put him at 5' 9" full grown (same as daddy!)

Weight = 26 lbs 5 oz (30%) -- still a light weight, but still following his growth curve so nothing to worry about!

He impressed the nurses with his knowledge about Nemo characters, and he showed off his 'digging' skills with the doctor (because he insisted on bringing Shovel, GREEN, BIG!" with us "INSIDE, MOM!". (The CAPS are because he says these with a very loud voice -- we are working on loud vs quiet voice...). Overall, the doctor told us that he is healthy, intelligent and she was impressed with how clearly he speaks. We were sent away with a 'see you next year'!

Oh, and fellow moms, one thing that worked REALLY WELL for us this trip to keep things calm and fun in the exam room while we waited for the doctor/nurse, was a sheet of stickers. I let Max stick them all over the paper on top of the table (they throw it out afterwards anyways) -- he made some really pretty artwork while we waited, and it kept him occupied!
