On Wednesday I took Brady in for his 2 year check up. For the first time, we actually did not get called back to a room until after our scheduled appt time, so that was annoying. Although it did allow me enough time to complete the form for developmental progress. As I was filling out the form I started to get worried because I've always had the feeling that Brady was "ahead of the curve", but then I realized there were many questions that I had to answer "NO" to. Well, when we finally got back to see the doctor and it came up, he informed me that I hadn't read the directions properly!!! DUH!!!! I was supposed to stop answering once I answered "NO" 3 times and then look off the right to find out where he was developmentally! He was at the level that 90% of 3 year olds are!!!! WHEW, I was relived and nervous all at the same time because I know I'm not going to be able to keep up with him as he gets older!!!! The doctor asked if Brady knew his colors and I said, "sometimes" and he said "he should know them by 3"....again I was relieved!!! It was funny today though because we went to The Container Store and Brady was pointing out everything that was either orange or green!!! 

Brady is now 34 inches tall which puts him in the 50th percentile and he unfortunately lost some weight since he was sick so he only weighed 23lbs and that puts him in the 5th percentile!!!  I'm not too worried about it though because ever since he's been feeling better he's been eating us out of house and home!!! LOL We're to go back for another check up at 30 months so I'll be curious to see how much he grows by then!!!

What a smarty pants! That is great that he even knows some of his colors! I was doing a checklist for Kyan and freaking out that all the answers were "no" (the kids were all with me at the time so I wasn't really paying attention to all the questions) come to find out it was a checklist for autism. Whew!!

I think those checklist directions sound awfully complicated for someone who has to fill it out in a germ-filled waiting room with a toddler! Geez!
Way to go Brady, on knowing lots of 3-year old skills! And how much do you love the Container Store?!?!?! It may be my favorite store in the whole world.
