Applewood Farm 2010

A couple of weeks ago we took Emerick back to Applewood Farm for our second annual trip to pick pumpkins, ride the steam train, pet the animals, explore the corn maze, ride the hay ride, and eat hot dogs. That place is so much fun for a kid, I am sure we will be going back every year in the future. Emerick was really excited, and this year he understood that we were going to go ride a "choo choo" and the whole drive out there he kept saying "I cited! choo choo!"

Here is Emerick with the Engineer last year and then this year...

"mmmm! this is good"

We had breakfast for lunch a couple of days ago, and Emerick got his first strip of bacon. I think he liked it.

Two Year Growth Stats

Today was Emerick's 2 year well check. He did great, and once again didn't cry when he got the shot in his thigh, such a tough guy. Here are his stats.
Height: 34 1/2 inches (55%)
Weight: 31 1/2 lbs (78%)

I was a little concerned about the percentile he was in today for height, since all along he has been right around the 70-80 percentile. The Dr. explained to me that there is a different growth chart that is used once a baby hits 2 years, and if he plugged his current height into the previous growth chart, he would still be within the same percentile range as he has been all along. Interesting.

Here are a couple of cell phone pictures of Emerick patiently waiting for the Dr. to see him. :-)
