So - here is the latest from his doctors appointment last week.
weight - 20.5lbs
height - 31 inches
His doctor was very pleased with his progress. He is catching up and surpassing their expectations at every turn. She was impressed with his walking, running and climbing abilities. She had me fill out a questionnaire about his development. She analyzed it and felt like he was doing fantastic. Starting to catch up to his actual age.
The biggest news, she felt that he could stop drinking the really expensive formula. He is on all whole milk now. That also means he is on all sippy cups - which he loves. The milk transition was wonderful. So far, we have had no issues. The first time he got milk in his sippy cup, he gulped it down. He loved it!
Nick continues to astound me with his absorption of knowledge. He is developing his problem solving skills. I am pretty sure he learns a word a day. His new favorite thing is to bring you a toy, then hold out his hand for you to give it back. Upon handing him said toy, he says "Tank too" (Thank you).
A few of the words in his vocabulary-
Mom (I think he is the only toddler to ever call mom)
Cocca (Mocha our dog)
Row ( the other dog)
Troy (his favorite neighbor)
No, No, No (this one is usually accompanied by shaking his finger)
There are probably many more, but these are tops in his vocab.
All of the wonderful things he does and learns is nothing in comparison with the joy he continues to bring to my life every day. I live for that smile, his hugs and his kisses. He is such a blessing to me, and I am thankful every day.
** He doesn't realize you really need water for that, but he loves pulling it through the yard.
** Had to snap this at the doctor's office. They want the kids to wear them before being examined. Thought it was too cute!
