Claire had her 2-year checkup with the pediatrician today. She weighs 23 lbs (5th percentile -- WOO HOO!) and is 33 inches tall (25th percentile) and everything looks great. It was an easy visit because she didn't have to get any shots, but she still hates the doctor's office and kept saying "go", "car", and trying to open the door to escape the little room. When I wouldn't let her she decided to keep herself busy by playing with tongue depressors and cotton balls, climbing on the furniture, and opening all the drawers in the cabinet.
We are going to the beach soon and would like Claire to sleep on an air mattress in the floor rather than in the bed with us (she slept in the bed with us in Gatlinburg a few weeks ago and none of us got any sleep because she is so wiggly). So as an experiment we put her crib mattress on the floor in her room this weekend to see if she would sleep on it. She LOVES it. She got up a couple times the first night, but last night she slept the whole night through. She also put herself down for a nap yesterday -- I was doing dishes and thought she was in the living room watching Dora, but found her fast asleep in her bed instead. I had no plans to move her out of her crib this soon, but since she likes her "big girl bed" so much we are going to disassemble her crib and eventually get her a twin bed.
