Just as we suspected, Nicholas is a stout young man: 30 pounds (75th %ile in weight) and 34 inches (50th %ile in height).  His vocabulary is "phenomenal" according to his doctor who about fell out of her chair when he very clearly said "open the garage door" and proceeded to pretend with his hands going up and down, noises and all.  Opening the garage doors and running around is his absolute favorite thing to do at home and he rarely gets to do it because it wears us plum out... mainly making sure he doesn't get squashed when they come down.  The doctor said almost all two year olds are saying two word sentences like "up please", but four words strung together is really an accomplishment.  It crosses my mind that he may be imitating an entire phrase, but he seems to understand the words separately because when he held her key (a distraction from having his ears looked into) he said "open the door"... distinguishing that this is not what we use to open the garage door, but a house or car door instead.  And he is really articulate, taking the time to say the whole word before moving onto the next word.

The not-so-perfect part of the story: we've been referred to a Cardiologist for an EKG.  It sounds much scarier than it is.  The doctor really just wants to confirm what she hears as an innocent heart murmur which should go away by the time he's 5.  I asked about the sound, whether there are levels (like, is there a borderline innocent murmur or is the sound completely different?) and that's when she decided to go ahead and make the referral, even though she implied that the sound would be different and we'd see other symptoms like low activity level or bluish lips.  The Cardiology visit doesn't sound too traumatic in the sense that it won't be painful or long (just a few stickers on his chest for about a minute), but I know it will freak him out.  *sigh*

Wow he does talk really good. Levi is 22 months and he says 2 and 3 word sentences but not alot of them.

Levi is 36 lbs. 34 1/2 in. lol. He is HUGE. But not fat at all, just built big, he is gunna have no problem being muscular when he is older. He KILLS my arm. We take the bus so carrying him, a stroller and a diaper bag on and off the bus multiple times a day is not fun anymore lol.

I hope everything goes okay with the EKG. Sounds pretty scary.

Oh my goodness... I cannot imagine dealing with multiple bus rides on top of lugging everything around every day. And even at 30 pounds, I'm trying to get Nicholas to walk more than being held (especially since I'm pregnant again). If he were much heavier, I couldn't do it at all. You are amazing. I'll post an update after the EKG.
