On Wednesday, we had Nolan's two year well visit. All went well. He is a healthy growing boy meeting his growth and developmental milestones. We filled out a form about his social, emotional, and academic growth, and I really haven't had any concerns with anything besides a bit of behavior. The behavior seems to come with the age though. I have definitely noticed a change in him since turning two. He's wanting to be more independent, says no more frequently, says I don't like it or I don't want to more often, and generally is just testing us more. We understand this is part of having a two year old, and we are realizing that it is called terrible twos for a reason. I find his behavior with other people like my family or neighbors better than with Jeremy and me or his sister. I definitely see my first born growing up into a little boy. We love him lots, and I can't wait to see what this year has in store for him.
Waiting for the nurse with his sister.
Not a fan of being measured.
Back to the baby scale one more time. He is 30lbs 3oz and 85th percentile for weight. He's always been on the higher end but is thinning out as he gets taller.
I will say I'm loving certain things about his current age but there are also things I'm not a huge fan of. I really enjoy all the talking, learning, and pretend play. He will read and do letters for hours. I love that he wants to learn and plays nicely independently and with me. Playing with his sister and other children is hit or miss. There's more temper tantrums lately, more fits getting dressed and changing his diaper, and more resistance as a whole but all in all he is still a pretty sweet, easy going boy. I'm hoping he starts to like his toddler bed soon. This transition hasn't been the easiest on any of us. More soon!
