First day of third grade

It’s Aug. 2, and Avery started third grade today. To say that summer flew by would be an understatement! She had a blast this summer, but I also know she’ll love going back to school.

We started the day with the obligatory photos.

And not to be outdone, Damon insisted on getting his picture taken, too. Next year he’ll finally get his turn in the spotlight since he’ll be going off to preschool!

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!
