Two Year Checkup

February 27th, 2010 — 10:23pm

As promised, here are the details of our two year doctor’s visit. As for how it felt to be there, this photo of Milo pretty much tells the story. It was miserable. Both boys were sick and out of sorts. But we did manage to get some vital statistics:

Levi:
Height: 33 3/4 inches (25-50th percentile)
Weight: 26 lbs (25th percentile)

Milo:
Height: 34 1/2 inches (25-50th percentile)
Weight: 27 lbs (25 – 50th percentile)

Doctor Tom says that we are doing well and are still on our growth curves. We discussed sleeping (how can we get them to do it more), eating (how’d they get to be so picky?), and pooing in the tub (i know, i know…). We also talked about Milo’s feet. The doc finally agreed with me that we should get his legs checked out by an pediatric orthopedic specialist, since his inversion is asymmetrical. We’ll make that appointment this week and might even go when Gramma Char is in town.

Finally we were recommended the following two books: The Emotional Life of a Toddler and How to Get Your Kid to Eat… But Not Too Much. We bought two copies of each – one for me and one for Tamaryn.

Anyhow, with all this bad health news this week from us I thought I’d share this adorable photo from this morning. We had a super sunny morning and we all wanted to be sitting outside. These are the sweet chairs that Gramma bought the guys.

Saddest Boy in the World

February 26th, 2010 — 10:46pm

As most of you guys know, Levi is really sick. He has had a cold on and off pretty much since their birthday. Earlier in the week we had our two year checkup (details coming) where our doc said that the guys just have nasty colds. Since they Levi has gotten steadily worse. He has been miserable. Not moving, not eating, and mostly sleeping the day away. Yesterday we brought him to the doctor again and this time the doc found an ear infection (ouch!) AND pneumonia (OUCHOUCHOUCH!!).

He’s had two doses of his antibiotics so far and that is not really enough to expect a huge turnaround. And he has not had one. He has spent the last 72 hours, when not in his bed sleeping, doing this. He just conks out wherever he is. And this is a boy who never ever ever sleeps anywhere but his bed, in arms, the carseat, or a stroller.

Most Beautiful Sunday in Seattle Ever

February 22nd, 2010 — 4:02am

Today was the most beautiful Sunday in memory in Seattle. Certainly the most beautiful Sunday in February! It was sunny, 59 degrees, crisp and lovely. Dave and Levi celebrated by going to GasWorks park.

Milo and I celebrated by being sick. Poor thing has a low fever and throws up a the thought of food. It is important to know that I am not kidding. Today he sat in his high chair and I offered him some hot cereal, you know, it is easy on the stomach. I asked him if he wanted it and he said “yes”. Then he said “no” and threw up. It was the saddest thing ever.

All The Lake Boys on Truck 38!

February 2nd, 2010 — 4:39am

Over the weekend we were driving downtown to take the boys to Pike Place Market for a little fun and apple samples. But on the way we saw this beauty sitting in front of the firehouse getting a bath! The boys and I screamed and we pulled over. We all tumbled out of the car and RAN to it. When we got there Fireman Chris was nice enough to turn on the lights and even let all of my boys get into the truck! It blew every one’s minds.
Firetrucks and Firemen are like rockstars to them; they see them in all of their books, they have toys of them… so imagine sitting in a real-live one! The boys are so excited in this photo they went nearly catatonic.

We were the luckiest family in town!
