Carter's 2 year check-up!

Finally, I was able to take my boy for his 2 year well check-up!
I've been looking forward to this appointment because I was so excited to find out how much he has grown over the last 6 months.
Thankfully, he's been so healthy that we haven't been to the Doctor much this year.
Well, as expected, I was told that he is ONE BIG BOY {no shock there}.

Weight: 34 lbs {96%}
Height: 37 1/2 inches {97%}

So, based on his current height, his projected height would be 6'2"!!!!  I'm potentially going to have some extremely tall children...who knows where that comes from! :)
Carter reading "The Little Engine That Could" at the Doctor's office yesterday.
We were there for quite a while because he was running a 103 temp. They did a strep and flu test...both came back negative {thankfully}!
Hoping that he just had a short 24 hour virus that will pass quickly!
Other than that, Dr. Roads said that he is happy, healthy {size of a 3 year old}, and extremely advanced with his speech for his age and for being a boy!  I was super proud!

For memory purposes, here are a few other things going on with Carter now that he's 2:
Favorite Book: Llama Llama Red Pajama {must be read every night}
Favorite Food: cheese and yogurt / fruit snacks
Favorite Songs to Sing: ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Favorite Show: Bubble Guppies
Wearing a size 6 diaper
Sleeping from 7pm-645am every night {thank goodness}
Favorite Sayings: "Don't like it" / "....right there" / "Carter did it" / "I pooped in my bed right here" :)
Favorite Friends at School {well, that he mentioned A LOT}: Paxton, Ellie, Aiden
Can count to 20 when he feels like it {thanks to Cindy and NayNay}
Loves to point out his name above his bed every morning and say "Carter"
Loves to touch the fan in his room before bed {strange habit I started with him about 6 months ago}
Loves to watch Barney & Jesus {Christian movie} at Cindy & NayNays house
Favorite Toys: anything that has wheels / Chloe's stroller / books, books, books / bubbles
Loves to play / hug / love on Riley
Still LOVES his big sister and wants to do EVERYTHING she does!

A few of Carter's many faces this morning outside of the Sitter's House: 
Blake and Casey accepting their NADA Academy Diplomas from Don in Sales Meeting on Monday!

Yummy Pumpkin Bread that Chloe made at school...it was really good!

Chloe's Thanksgiving attire for school today...I'm so thrilled that she is letting me curl her hair. It looks precious!

  1. Wow!!! Carter is a big boy. Brody is 4 and weighs 36 pounds and is 41 inches. He is super long and lean...we are sure his height is from either David's brother or mine as we were not blessed in the height department. Oh, I love those pictures of Carter with the mums! Super cute.
