As mentioned earlier today, Liam had his two-year check up yesterday. I thought it would be interesting to see how his two year stats compare to his one year stats. But dang it all, I just went back to look, and I never recorded them in LJ! Bah.
Oh well. At 2 yrs old, Liam is 34 1/4 inches tall (almost 75th percentile), 31 lbs 5 oz (between 50th and 75th percentile) and has a head circumference of 20 1/4 inches(90th percentile).
He has 14 teeth, we think - it's kind of dangerous to put your fingers in there these days.
His vocabulary is great, according to his pediatrician. It would be impossible at this point to say how many words he has, other than "a lot." And he puts them together in all kinds of neat ways. He likes to recite numbers and letters, although he skips quite a few. And we're still working on colors - right now most things are blue.
Fine motor skills are great. Gross motor skills good too, although I'm not sure if he "should" have figured out jumping by now...
He's a great eater. Toddler picky, in that something that is amazing one day is poison the next, and he'll gobble down half a banana two minutes after saying "I don like dat." But he frequently tries and likes new foods and has a wide variety of things that he enjoys eating.
Sleep is getting better. At night, he usually sleeps from about 9 to about 6, with usually only one wakeup. Sometimes more than one, and occasionally none at all. But he's getting much better about putting himself back to sleep, and while he's never really embraced being nightweaned, he's complaining less about it when I say no. He's pretty consistent about having a 2 to 3 hour nap in the afternoon - it's rare that he goes less than 2 hours these days.
He still loves to nurse. I don't dare go topless around the house, because he'll be running over and lunging at me every chance he gets. In a way I could say we nice 3 times a day, but really we nurse AT 3 times a day - first thing in the morning, when we get home from school, and at bedtime. But he'll often nurse several times in those periods - in the morning we'll nurse in bed before getting up for the day, then he might nurse once or twice more between his morning TV shows and breakfast etc. Evenings are the same way. Weekends are much less scheduled, since we're together all day long, but we tend to be on the go, and don't nurse much when we're out and about.
And that's the state of Liam. It's a really fun age, and we're all enjoying it a lot.
