I took Lucas in for his 2-year doctor checkup last week. Here are his growth stats:
Weight: 26 lbs, 3 oz (27%)
Height: 33.25 inches (27%)
Head: 19 inches (39%)
Lucas' growth has definitely slowed down, which I think is normal for this age. At his 18-month checkup he weighed 26 lbs, so he gained a whopping 3 oz over the past 6 months. My boys just don't like to eat! But they sure like to move and burn calories.
Developmentally, Lucas is right on track. His gross motor skills are beyond his age. He can correctly name some colors and his speech is really starting to pick up. I'm not worried about any of those areas.
So overall it was a good visit with the doctor because I felt like he really listened and gave me his honest advice about Lucas. The fact that Lucas tests at or above his age level for every developmental category is very encouraging. Now if we can just move past this difficult phase, I'll feel a bit more ready for the next baby to come along!
