Noah's 3 year appt

We went yesterday--40.25" and 35.2 lbs, normal blood pressure. The doctor just asked a few questions, like does he know shapes, colors, how to pedal a bike. When I told him that I only know of a few shapes that he knows, his colors he gets goofy about (we don't really work with him on a lot--just while we're playing; I figure that's what school is for, lol) and I had no idea about a bike, he wasn't concerned in the least, said he seemed like a normal, perfect boy. I realized that's what I love about this pedi's office--they're totally relaxed about stuff (within reason) and know how to keep parents calm. So all in all a great appointment, although I forgot to ask about getting him re-tested for his milk protein allergy and hypoglycemia.

Tall boy!

Our pedi asked about pedaling a bike too and I had no idea - we have never put him on one. So when we went to TRU this past weekend I put him on a bike with training wheels and he can do it - Hu, I had no idea. LOL

And I agree about learning - pretty soon it will be their full time job to go to school and learn, learn, learn...let them play now. Smile

Sounds like a great appointment. Man he is tall! (sorry I HAD to say it too Lol

* man ya'lls kids don't ride tricycles or any king of peddle ride on toys? Not that there's anything wrong with it, but Josh just love to ride his tricycle. He's outgrowing it so Santa got him a bike with training wheels for Christmas.

This is going to sound really bad, but we never go outside. His balance bike is inside and he has a few ride on toys and an electric jeep - but otherwise we are always inside. I'm using too busy cooking and straightening up and then getting ready for bed to take him outside and its dark by the time Jus gets there. I'm hoping to be outside more while I am on leave.

Yeah, when the pedi mentioned that I thought "gosh, I guess I should find out, huh?"

Yes, Noah is SO tall! I am so happy about it--DH is short, so I was hoping my "tall genes" would over-ride his short ones. Smile

Yes, Noah rides tricycles at daycare every day, but I've never thought to ask if he could pedal. I try to keep different toys at home from the ones he has at daycare because variety is the spice of life and all that. Smile So at home we have a scooter and a balance bike, but nothing with pedals. There's seriously SO MUCH I don't know that he knows. Like he'll come home one day singing his ABCs, or know different shapes, or colors, or the one that really blew me away--6 months ago I saw him pumping his legs on a swing, going super high. I had NO idea he (or any kid) could figure it out that early. It's such a bummer that I miss out on so much of it! But hey, at least he's learning it!

Wow, what a short kid you have! Lol I'm with you, though, Jess....I don't pay much attention to what Sophia knows if she learns it at school. I know she knows shapes and colors but could not tell you which ones.

I am surprised at how many of you have kids that don't ride bikes! Sophia would live on hers if I would let her (she has a Schwinn Roadster Tricycle). What's funny is that the pedals are out in front of you so it takes a certain type of leg strength, which she has developed because she has been riding it for over a year now. Then she started playing with our new neighbor, who has a regular 2-wheeled bike with training wheels, and it took Sophia a little while to figure out how to push the pedals hard enough, from that standpoint, to get them to move. It's totally different to push the pedals from above.
