2 Years Old!

Posted by Picasa

Though a month late, here is the 2 year post!

Here are the 2 year stats:

Height: 35.5 inches (70th percentile)
Weight: 26.2 lbs. (50th percentile)
Head (does anyone care about this anymore?): 19.25 inches (50th percentile)

Despite my constant worrying that he's surviving off cheerios and apple sauce imposed an all vegetables moratorium and anything else that's green, he seems to continue growing well on the same growth curve. It seems that it was only yesterday that I was at my 20 week ultrasound at the Doctor's when they told me he was of "average" weight/build/etc. And he really was, even when he was born 7 lbs. 9 oz. = smack what they predicted and right in the 50th percentile. So I guess he knows what he's doing after all, those breastfeed babies/toddlers they know how to regulate.

Speaking of which, I assumed Dek would have weaned by now, but we are still nursing at bedtimes and mornings which has been amazing so that we can reconnect. Sometimes its nice to do that especially when I'm working late or we don't get "quality" time now that he's too busy running around every which way.

Foods Dek Loves:
Eggs, Sardines, Rice, Apples, Noodles, Pho

Words he's speaking (yes, I tried to keep track of most)
English: 75 words
Vietnamese: 67 words
Tagalog: 18 words
Signs: 10 (he's mostly dropped these)

He just recently started stringing together 2 word sentences, his favorite being "An Nuoi" (eat noodle), "Where dada?" and "Derek gioi! (good job Derek). He is starting to count in both languages too and just started identifying more colors (shapes forget it) and animals.

Thanks to everyone for continuing to shower him with love! We're so lucky our little man is growing up in a "the village", well, the modern day equivalent of it. We definitely couldn't do it with out the love, support and care of our fantastic friends and family.
