Luke appeared to be fine developmentally. The doc found was that Luke had a double ear infection. Mom and I didn't know he had one as he wasn't showing any outward signs. I'm guessing it was just getting started and we would have seen it in a few days. Or the doctor just needed to make a payment on her boat. Also she was a little concerned about one of his eyes. I'm not sure if it is an alignment issue like with Alyce or some near sightedness but we are to go to a specialist and have it check out.
Mom asked about Luke's screaming. At times when he is really excited or wanting some attention he will pardon the term "scream like a girl". His screams are silence destroying missiles that will pierce through any conversation and cause headaches if you get too close. The doctor said that it is a boy thing and that it will go away when he learns more words.
Luke's scores in height and weight are:
- Height: 36 inches
- Weight: 32 lbs.
Both of those values are in the 90th percentile. Comparing those to his 18 Month values he grew 2 1/2 inches and gained 2 lbs. To compare against Alyce she was 35 3/4 inches and 25 lbs at 2 years.
The best part about Luke being 2 years old is that we can stop saying he is X months old. After 18 months it is just kind of weird. To go any further past 24 and gets even worse. Luke is 33 months old, I think not. Also, Luke now gets to eat peanut butter. We didn't have any fears about peanut allergies and I even thing he might have had some peanuts, but doctors recommend staying away from them until 2 years of age.
To close Luke got a Hepatitis A vaccination.
