It's hard to believe that this little bundle is such a big girl!
She turned 2 in April. I took her today for her 2 year check up. She weighs 30 lbs and is 36.5 inches tall. Because I'm a nerd, I wanted to know where she fell percentile-wise with her age group, so I googled it:
At 22 months:
your child is 30 pounds, and that is
at the 90th percentile for weight.
your child is 36.5 inches, and that is
at greater than the 97th percentile for height.
I also read that your 2 year old height is half of your adult height. With that being said, MK is more than likely going to be about 6 feet tall. We'll have to wait and see!! It appears she is well on her way.
She is also a smart little thing. In my wanting to know where she falls compared to others her age, I was reading up on various development skills. She definitely meets ALL the 2 year old skills and most of the 3. She even meets several of the 5 year old skills.
Her skills include:
*Counting to 10 consistently in English and Spanish; she can sometimes count to 15 on her own and can count to 20 in English with help
*identify all her shapes
*identify at least 15 colors
*recognizing her name (both MK and Madelyn)
*recognizes extended family (that we only see every few months...some she's only seen once, but can point them out in pictures)
*sings a repertoire of 20 or so songs (some English some Spanish)
*recognizes some words (probably 10 or so regularly) on flash cards
*can follow 2 step directions, when she chooses too!!
*jump with both feet leaving the ground
*jump off objects...whether she's suppose to be on them or not!!
*climb on chairs (and ladders at gymnastics)
*brush her own teeth
*knows the entire alphabet and the sound most of the letters make
She is so prissy and sassy. She likes to have her toenails painted and her hair fixed. She has been requested "lipstick" aka lipgloss the last few weeks. She prefers to wear Natalie's heels to her shoes. This morning she was hanging out with Natalie while I took a shower. When I went to tell her I was out of the shower, she was in Natalie's bathroom "putting on make-up". She had Natalie's make-up brush and would rub it on the bar of soap then put it on her eyes and cheeks. She loves gymnastics and is getting pretty good at it. She practices it all the time, jumping and donkey kicking all over the place. She was moved up a class the beginning of this session, which normally requires you to be 3. She likes to boss Sabre around. She knows all the Disney princesses and most of the characters of all the Disney and Nick Jr shows.
I'm sure I've left a lot out, but that's my girl in a nutshell!!
