I want a removable label, please.

Liam finally had his two year check. Yes, he's been two for 7 months. But unofficially he's only been two for 3 months. And no, he's not too old to still be using an adjusted age!

Anyway, he's doing fine. I guess. I mean, it's not like I can answer the stupid papers that you fill out for the two year check up! When I signed in at the front the nurse handed them to me and I told her I didn't need to fill them out. She looked at me like I was an idiot. I started to explain that my son has CP and doesn't do one darn thing on that list. I was just trying to avoid having to look at the list of what typical 2 year olds do and save myself the frustration. But I took them anyway to save myself from more explaining.

I could have just avoided the papers; folded them up and put them in the diaper bag. But noooooo, I had to take a peek at them. It was deeply depressing.

God bless my Dr. though. She didn't even ask for the papers when we went in.

Liam is still holding his weight at just shy of 25 lbs. His length is pretty good. Head circumference...eh. Not so hot. His head hasn't grown much in the last 6 months and it's small for his age.

We've had the microcephaly diagnosis tossed around before. If your head isn't what the charts say it should be then you are given that label. Liam's head is small, but it's appropriate for him and appropriate for the micropreemie toaster head that he still has. She didn't want to say he does have microcephaly but she said that the small size meant that a child would typically get that label.

That's all my kid needs. Another label.
