2 year check up

I have not blogged for awhile, so I thought I would write something today. We just got home from Carson's 2 year check up. Dr. Ball said he was doing great, which is always music to a mother's ears. Dr. Ball said that Carson was around 60% in height and weight. He weighed 29 pounds and is 35 inches tall. Dr. Ball said he is developing normally. As a mom (and teacher) I think you secretly worry if your child is developing normally. When your a teacher, you have students in your class that have not developed normally, and you secretly think what if that was my child. As a mom you hear other parents say things such as "my child can count to 10 and know all of their colors," and in the back of your mind you are thinking "Oh no, my child can't do any of those things." I was at a workshop the other day and a guy was saying, "My daughter knows all of her colors." I just smiled and said, "My child can throw a ball. Does that count?" I can see it now. I am going to be one of those parents that have the bumper sticker that says "my kid can beat up your honor roll kid." No, not really. Carson is just Carson. He hates to be sung the ABC song. It is funny. He covers his ears and says "No mommy no. " I know it is the song and not my singing:)lol. He may not be able to count or say his ABC, but he is the sweetest gift from God that I could ever ask for.
