For some reason, they didn't give us the printout with his height and weight and the three-year milestones, but I remember the basic stats.
Height: 2 feet, 11.75 inches, or about the 10th percentile
Weight: 30.6 pounds, or about the 50th percentile
The nurse originally measured him and she must have been counting some of his hair, because the dot on the height chart jumped way up to the 75th percentile, so Dr. Swofford re-measured and he was back at the 10th percentile as usual. An inch or two can make a big difference :)
Just make yourself at home, James:
Here are some things James is doing:
- Making up stories and songs (and sometimes jokes/fibs)
- Counting (up til 11 or 12 reliably, and then he starts skipping around and repeating)
- Trying to get dressed himself (undies are hard and he hasn't put a shirt on, but he has taken one off)
- Drawing people and other scribbles
- Writing his name!
- Climbing, jumping, throwing and kicking a ball
- Hopping on one foot
- Building towers of 6-8 blocks
- Cutting with scissors
- Pretending to read books
- Trying to do puzzles
- Says and recognizes rhyming words
- Is possessive of toys and spaces, but will relent after just a minute if there's someone to share/play with
- Holds a grudge! Weeks later, he'll say things like, "Christian hit me," and make a sad face if I ask about his friends from school
I think three is going to be a fun age! Here is the link to his 2-year well child visit for comparison.
