{24 month Check-up}

On Friday 7/6 Mason had his 24 month checkup {a month and a week late} and it went exceptionally well.

For the first time like ever Mason walked right up, stood on the scale, let her measure him and take his temperature without totally clinging to me.
He was such a big boy and we were so proud.

Stats - 
Weight - 29.3 lbs - 61 percentile
Height - 35.2 in - 70 percentile
Head circumference - 19.5 in - 69 %

The major change was the jump in his height. At his 20 month checkup he was 32.5 in and only in the 22nd percentile!!       

Dr. Sweet is the most gentle, kindest doctor ever. We love her to pieces. When checking Mason's ears she told Mason she found a birdie in his ears and made a chirping noise. He talked about that for 3 days! And if you ask him what the doctor found in his ears he will tell you. He especially loved that.

She gave us an awesome report and said that she has no concerns what so ever in the development department.

He only got 1 shot - the last part of the hepatitis.
He cried - but I think mostly because Nate had to hold him down. He doesn't like to be pinned down. So, he was crying before the shot even happened.
He didn't have any side effects from it.
That made me happy!

At 25 months - you're

Size 2T and 3T bottoms, size 3T and 4T shirts
Size 7 shoe
Size 6 diaper

Eating - getting so much better, trying new things and even eating meats. Lately you love lunchables and even eat the meat out of them. You also eat all parts of the hamburger now instead of just the bread and cheese. Your favorite food is mexican...you love rice, beans, tortillas, and bean burritos. You've come a long way in this department.

Sleeping - you sleep great at night - although your bed time has been pushed out. These days it's hard to get you asleep before 9:30. You nap for a little over 2 hours everyday at school and weekends are up in the air. Sometimes you'll go all day without a nap and sometimes you'll nap for 4 hours or more! 

Talking - I was just saying on facebook how amazed I am at the conversations I have with you these days! You're like a miniature person and it's crazy to me. There's nothing you can't say. I'm keeping note of all the funny things you've been saying lately. V1 here V2 here

You have really gotten into TV shows lately - Caillou, Bubble Guppies, Dora and Diego are your favorites. But, if you were to have to choose between tv and going outside you'd choose outside - hands down. You are very active and love for Mommy and Daddy to play with you. I find myself having conversations with you that I never imagined doing at only {barely} 2 years old! You are stubborn, but yet you have such a sweet soul. You do not like the word No. You have better manners than most adults. You are happy most of the time, but can throw some really big fits too. You hate wearing shoes, changing your diaper and riding in your car seat. You love your sandbox, monster trucks, tractors and trains. You drink like a horse and eat like a bird. 

Masonbug - Mommy and Daddy love you more than you could ever imagine! You fill our hearts with so much pride and joy we could burst. Thank you for changing our lives.
