2 year Pediatritian Appointment

Wow - can you believe it's that time already?

Vital stats:

22lbs (<1%)
34" tall (a little below 50%)
18.9" head circ (I can't remember exactly, but it was around 25%)

The doctor is *finally* convinced that Joseph is on his own curve and doing well (yey!) I've been convinced ever since he started talking.

There is too much awesome stuff to say about how he's been. He's so fun right now. Sometimes he just runs around like a mad man - so funny. He knows every letter (except Q, but heck, that one's not too important, right?) and lots of words. Once we filled up a whole page I stopped keeping track, but I'd put him at 75-100 if I had to guess.

He loves to play with balls, still, but he's really into puzzles, books, trains, cars, and his stuffed bears. He reminds me to grab a bag before we go, and sometimes he wants to take his own "bag" (an old purse of mine) with - filled with balls, of course!

We've been going to a music class that he absolutely adores. It's really making him more outgoing. I'm hoping it'll prepare him slightly for preschool in the fall.

He's still a bit "sensitive" with other kids; his feelings are easily hurt and not easily repaired. We'll have a lot of work to do teaching him how to interact with children in an assertive manner... which will be difficult for this Mama, who specialized in passive-aggressive techniques all of her life! Never to late to learn, right? We have a ways to go for that, though, as most two year olds are simply taking from others or pushing them around. I'm thinking that meaningful interaction is a year or two away still.

All in all, Joseph is a huge joy in our lives - he makes me happy and proud to be a mom!
