I cannot believe that we just had our 2 year doctor appointment! Carter is 35" tall which is in the 85% range (so, he's on the tall side - taking after Uncle Nick) and weighs 27.4 lbs which is in the 45% range (so, he is on the slender side).
Dr. Voytas is very mildly concerned with his lack of talking. He said that most of the time kids like Carter who are not saying 2 and 3 words at a time at this age will all of the sudden just explode with talking one day. As long as he is progressing, there is nothing to worry about so, we'll see where he is in 3 months. As long as he is further than he is now, we're good to go.
Dr. V was very impressed with every other skill Carter showed while we were there today. Using my iphone and navigating to some videos to watch while mommy and Dr. V talked pretty much blew him away. Then, during the exam, Carter was told that Dr. V needed to look in his mouth. Carter opened wide and said "AH!" without even being asked. Dr. V said that he has a hard time even getting most 4 year olds to do that. He also sat perfectly still for his spinal check. Dr. V also gave Carter the option of which ear he wanted checked first. Carter pointed to his left and turned his head so that he could be checked out.
So, basically, we have a non-verble genius.
When the nurse came to give him his shots, he was a very good boy! I told him that he would get a "sticker" on each leg so, after she poked him with the needle in just one leg twice and gave him the one band-aid, he pointed to the other leg and she obliged him with another band-aid. That was it.
He is such a good boy! For a treat, we picked daddy up from work and did a Starbucks run. He loved having the few extra minutes with daddy!
