You are 28 months old today. We achieved a milestone this month—6 months in our family. What a difference that has made for both of us.
You have gone from a sallow-faced, empty-eyed, bewildered toddler
Yes, I said vocabulary. You have made amazing strides with your speech, most of it in the last 2 weeks. You are making multi-syllable babbling sounds as well as striving to use the correct vowel sounds for words like oatmeal and baby. In fact, yesterday morning when I asked if you would prefer eggs or oatmeal you said, "O-me". You actually finally made the E sound just a few days ago! Because of all this progress, you have graduated to every-other-week speech therapy with Ms. Annie.
Speaking of graduating, you have also been cleared from feeding therapy with Early Intervention. You can now slurp noodles in, feed yourself with a fork and spoon, and drink out of a cup.
you settled right in and said "ahhhh" when he asked to look in your mouth.
Weight: 23lb 10oz (but they weighed you in a diaper and a onesie)
And here were your latest stats this month:
Head: 47 1/2cm
Weight: 27lbs naked
Height: 36" recumbent length
To wrap up the medical side of this letter, let me also mention the chiropractor. You've been going once a week this month and it has made a huge difference in your sleep and constipation issues. Unfortunately, it didn't solve all of your problems so we experimented with no milk or cheese for a week to see if you would have a positive reaction and you did. All of your intestinal issues seem to have eased and your eczema is gone as well. The good thing is that you don't seem to really care that these two items are missing in your life as long as you can still have your kefir and yogurt.
We had a lovely visit from your Nana this month and I was so happy to see that you totally remembered her. You ran right up and made yourself quite comfortable in her lap where you stayed for a good bit of her visit.
Do you know where your favorite place is? Anywhere outside. I only need hint that we *might* be going out *sometime* in the future and you have hustled over to the shoe tray to gather everyone's shoes. You can now hang upwards of 45 seconds on the monkey bars, can climb to the highest slides in the park and swing on the tire swing with no fear.
