2-year well visit

Randy's 2-year well visit was.....well great!!!  It is the first time that I have left a doctor appointment without sonething to "do" or "keep working on" or a referral.  He is on the growth chart for his actual age (well in most areas): 5th percentile for weight and 25th percentile for height!! His head is lagging behind and is not on the growth chart, but is continuing to grow.  I asked his pediatrician if it was a cause for concern.  He said not really, especially if he continues to make progress the way he has been.

Weight: 23lbs 14oz
Length: 32.5 inches
Head circumference: 44.6 cm

He was pleased with his progress in all areas.  Randy talked to him and sang nursery rhymes.  He did not give me a hard time about him eating purees and actually supported my decision to comtinue to do this.  He said that it is keeping him growing and that as he gets older, he may begin to overcome some of these sensory issues.

He was pleased with his therapy schedule and was on board with him doing hippotherapy as soon as he is released from the general surgeon (from his hernia surgery).

Oh, I do have one thing to do... I have to take him to the lab to get his iron and lead levels checked.

  1. Randy is ADORABLE! He will LOVE hippotherapy. John has been in it for two years now....unfortunately it is only seasonal here in AZ. Anyhow, do not worry about him not using his walker. John didn't start using his until he was 3 years old. He has plenty of time. Plus, he'll be more interested in using it when he starts preschool and sees all the other kids walking around!
