Today Gavin had his 2 year checkup at the doctor's office. He weighs 27.7 lbs (45th percentile), is 36 inches tall (85th %), with a head circumference of 19.75 in (84th %). Doubling his height at age 2 would give him an adult height of 6 ft. Another height calculator online puts him at 6ft 1in as an adult. The nurse checked Gavin's hearing because of his delayed speech and the doctor said it was a little off. Because of that she is referring him to an audiologist for more testing. If everything turns out alright with his ears he'll get referred to speech therapy next. But the good news is otherwise he's perfectly healthy. And the doctor did say that some kids are just late with their speech development.

Gavin had a great time at his birthday party. We ate pizza, then cake, then opened presents. He liked the dinosaur cake and the cupcakes, but his favorite part was the m&m's on top. He kept fussing for more after he ate his. He has not learned to blow out candles yet, so I helped again this year.
Gavin's good friend Romana:
His other good friend, Carleigh:
Gavin was able to open all his presents himself this year, which is better than he could do at Christmas.
He was most excited by these toy guns, immediately jumping up and running around making shooting noises.
His other favorite toy of the day - a bulldozer I got from the Waterfront Mission in FL for $.75
