Three-year doctor's appointment

Since we just celebrated his third birthday, Damon was due for his three-year doctor’s appointment. Here are his current stats:

Weight – 32 pounds, an increase of about 5.5 pounds since last year (25th percentile)
Height – 36 inches, an increase of 2 inches since last year (50th percentile)

He’s right on target with his growth milestones, including saying his ABCs, counting to 10, recognizing colors and shapes, coloring with a purpose, running, jumping, and throwing a ball overhand.

Our goals over the next year are to continue writing and recognizing letters and numbers and reading lots and lots of books! Damon also will become more independent, which is both a blessing and a curse!

Hopefully we won’t see Dr. Roscoe before next August!

Damon’s third birthday party

Damon is 3 years old! How did that happen?

When we started talking about his birthday party a few weeks ago, he definitely wanted a Blaze party. And a no-frills one too. “Pizza, cake, and presents.” That’s all he asked for, and that’s all he got!

The party’s secondary themes were Legos and Minions, indicated in several gifts and wrapping paper. Mommaw and Poppaw Clark, Grandma and Grandpa Hromada, and Aunt Karen spoiled Damon with lots of toys, books, and clothes.

Daddy bought some Hot Wheels cars and a cool “crash” track. I can’t decide if he bought these things for Damon or for himself! Daddy said it’s payback time for all those years he had to play with Barbies!

After cake and ice cream, we headed outside for some pictures with the man of the hour.

Happy birthday, sweet Damon. We love you!
