Seriously though, Daniel had a great birthday & is really growing & developing. He had his well check with his pediatrician & he's doing great. He shot up a lot the past year & is in the 75% for height for the first time since birth! He continues to be perfectly average in weight in the 50%. I don't remember the exact numbers, but he's about 41 inches & I think 35 lbs.
I also had his parent teacher conference. His teacher is super pleased with how well he is doing in school. He already knows all his letters & numbers, even ones that they haven't taught yet. He also does amazing when coloring, he stays in the lines way better than a 3 year old should. Her only concern is that he doesn't talk to & play with the other kids (sound familiar??) They are going to work on that during the last few weeks of school. I'm not sure I fully agree with her though because since that meeting, Daniel has had a play date with one of the girls from his class & we are setting up 2 others. I know he is shy & quiet & I think he just prefers to play with the girls because they are calmer than boys his age. He probably wants a break from all the chaos & testosterone that he deals with everyday...I know I do!
Here are a few pictures of Daniel from the past 2 months:
