Luke had his 2 year check-up today. He weighed 27 pounds (50th percentile) and was 33 inches tall (25th percentile). His head was in the 90th percentile! As a comparison, at Jacob's 2 year check-up, he was 28 pounds and 35 inches tall. Two inches taller, wow!
Luke currently has a cold with a cough and has now for about a week. We've been doing the routine breathing treatments to help him from wheezing. Which is a beating, I might add! We found out today that he has a ear infection in his left ear! Poor guy. The strange thing is he has not shown any symptoms of an ear infection, no fever, no irritability, sleeping fine. I'm sure it was just a matter of days before he started feeling bad. I'm just glad we caught it soon. This is his first one of the season. This time last year he had already had about 3 ear infections. So, I'm thankful this winter has been a lot easier...so far!
Luke is progressing right on track. His doctor was thrilled with his word progression and all that he was doing. He can recognize most colors. If I ask him which one is red, blue, green etc he can point it out. He can recognize some letters and make some letter sounds. Thanks to Leap Frog Letter Factory which he loves to watch. He can point out several shapes when asked...circle, square, triangle, rectangle, star.
He also LOVES to do puzzles. He has worked his way up to the puzzle that doesn't have the individual holes for the pieces. Where it's just one picture and not divided. And he gets so excited when he finishes it. His Uncle Brian made him a wooden puzzle in the shape of a dog for his birthday. Combining two of his favorites, dogs and puzzles! Thanks again Uncle Brian! (didn't get a picture of this one)
Jacob and Luke like to put on their "Super Why" gear and play. Super Why is a show on PBS. It's all about words, sounding out words and learning to read. It's great. The costume is from the main character. Jacob got his for Christmas and I quickly realized we needed another one. There was high demand for this toy. So, Luke got his for his birthday!
Showing off their capes
The most recent activity is to get all the pillows from around the house and build them their very own house. They love it. Now, keeping Luke from accidentally knocking over the "walls" can be quite a task. We just rebuild...a lot! :)
Decided to take a little TV break
