2 Year Visit

Today was Lucas's 2 year checkup with the pediatrician. It was traumatic at first because he wanted to play in the waiting room with the cool toys, but instead got taken to an exam room where he had an absolute fit. Have I told you about Lucas's new screaming talent? He must have gotten it for his b-day. It's LOUD.

He chilled out eventually... when the exam was over. Here are our stats:
Weight: 30 lbs 1 oz. - 75%
Height: 37 1/4 inches - 95% (he was throwing a fit, so this could be off)
Head Circ.: 50.1 cm - 80%

The doctor said he looked good. Luckily, he started saying two word phrases the other day or she might have sent us to a specialist. He said, "bye bye Daddy", "more Daddy" (he said this to me, but oh well... two words is two words), "mama's shoes", and of course, "all done" which he has been saying since he learned to eat.

I asked her about autism because a few people have shown concern. She said he is definitely not autistic (she told me this last year, too). He's so social, has good eye contact, etc. When she was walking out of the room he even blew her a kiss and as she walked away she said, "yep, definitely not autistic."

You just have to understand that Lucas is gonna be a different kind of kid. His dad is Ben. And if he gets his dad's DNA, he's going to be extremely smart, get into a lot of trouble, do funny things, and drive me insane. As far as the sorting goes, I think he gets that from me.

After the appointment we went to Brushy Creek Park with our friends and had fun there. (After a tantrum from leaving the doctors office/cool toys).

LOL; "sigh" oh having a crazy toddler can be so much fun some times! I can totally relate to this post today. Boston had a playgroup today and was just throwing a fit because he wanted to ride the big boy bikes, which of course he's too small for. Anyway, the terrible twos are here for both of us it sounds!:)
