A Car for Jakob

On Jake's birthday, Scott & I both stayed home from work. Scott took the day off. In the morning, we had Jake's 2-year check-up, then I worked from home the rest of the day.

At Jake's check-up, we learned that he's 37 1/2 inches tall... 100th percentile for 2-year-olds, average height for a 3-year-old. Doctor estimates he will be 6'2" or 6'3". And he's 27 pounds. 60th percentile for 2-year-olds. Sure feels heavier than 27 pounds when you carry him for any length of time. Maybe because he's wiggly? Doctor said Jake's language skills are above average and he seems very bright.

In the evening, we picked up pizza and went to my in-laws' house. Jake loves to eat "peepa" - it's one of his favorite foods. The highlight of the day was Jake's birthday present. A new car! Grandpa spent the day assembling it. It's a very special car that was purchased for Jake before he was born. Jake's grandparents were beyond excited about Jake coming into the world and couldn't wait to start spoiling him from the moment we discovered we were having a baby. It seemed ridiculous at the time to buy a pedal car for an unborn baby. But here we are, 2 years later, and Jake loves it!
