3 Year Checkup - Our Little Man Ain't So Little

Posted on August 6, 2013 @ 04:16 pm by wendy

Ty's daycare has been closed for two weeks and although Jon and I have spent some of the time off packing and making our way through Doctors and Dentist appointments, we've tried to go on an adventure each day with the little man. Today it was back to the pool at the Y. Most of you know that Ty is our little water baby. He's been taking lessons at the Y since before he could walk and would prefer a bath just so he can stick his head under the water. Today we reached another milestone-he swam for an hour without a bubble or any swimmy. He jumped off the edge and swam to the wall. We threw a ball and he swam to catch it. I did bring a noodle in and on occasion he used it (the lifeguard told us to put it under his belly button to help keep him flat) to help with his form and for play, but the boy was swimming all on his own. Way to go Tyler. I didn't want to leave him in the water alone, but I'll try and take some video next time.

Last but not least Ty had his 3 year checkup today and the Doctor told me that he's taller than half the 5 year olds in the country. Man our kid is going to be tall. He grew 4" and 4lbs over the last year. No wonder we go through so much milk.

At 3 years old Tyler is 39.5 inches tall and weighs 38lbs.

Tyler will also be starting preschool in the fall. It is crazy how time flies. Much love to all. XOXOX Wen

I knew he grew but didn't realize how much. He has grown in so many ways he's just a little man with stories to tell. I love our Friday adventures, I just hope that he will remember some of the good times we have shared together Tyler, Poppi and Nana. I wouldn't give up our time together for anything in the world. You forgot the most important accomplishment for him this last year, he wears boxer briefs!!!
