Nathan's 2 year well check visit.

Today Nathan had his 2 year well check visit with the doctor.  He's doing great!  His height is 33 inches (10th-25th %), weight is 24 lbs, 5 oz (10th%) and head circumference is 50 cm (75th-90th%).

Our pediatrician is very impressed with Nathan's verbal skills!  He received the flu mist vaccine and hepatitis A booster.  His next visit will be at age 3, unless he becomes sick.

Nathan is 2 years old!

Happy birthday Nathan!

Wow, 2 years already!  He is such a joy to have in our family.  He's sweet, loving, funny, playful and so smart.  He loves to do somersaults, run, jump, and is always saying "look at me, watch me!"  He likes dinosaurs, cars, trains, airplanes, and playing hid-n-seek.  He loves to roar like a dinosaur and chase Emma.  They actually enjoy roaring at each other quite a bit! Daddy also taught them both to howl like wolves and that's a lot of fun to listen too, they are so cute!

Nathan is usually up around 7am, eats cereal for breakfast, and takes one nap around 11am or 12pm.  He plays hard all day, but does like to watch a little TV.  His favorite shows are Go Diego Go, Dinosaur Train (dinosaurs and trains in one show, what a genius idea!) and Thomas the Tank Engine.

Nathan is working on his last 4 baby molars.  I can see the point of one poking through the gum, and his gums all are red and swollen.  Hopefully they will break through soon!  Tomorrow is his 2nd year well check, so I will post an update on that tomorrow.

Saturday we had a party for Nathan at home.  His grandparents were here to celebrate with lots of family and friends.  We had a Thomas the Tank Engine cake, ice cream, and lots of fun playing inside and outside.  I made a double layer cake for Saturday and tonight we ate the very last two pieces.  We lit candles again and sang to Nathan.  He has been saying all weekend and today, "It's my birthday!"

Happy birthday little Nater-Tater!  We love you!
