Just Checkin' In Doc

The triplets just had their 2 year checkup with the pediatrician.  As usual, Dr. Roberts and all the nurses were very excited to see the trio.  After getting a thorough check, everyone passed with flying colors!  He gave us a questionnaire similar to the one at the 18-month checkup to screen for autism.  Neither Sarah nor Luke had any concerning areas.  Jake had one small area that he is not excelling in and that's climbing and balance.  We expressed our concerns that it doesn't seem like he's on pace with the other two.  The doctor checked his eyes to see if it is a vision issue and checked his ears to see if it is an eardrum issue.  Both were just fine.  The doctor looked at his spine.  Fine. Then he checked his legs and muscles to screen for cerebral palsy.  It is not that either.  So basically the doctor just thinks that Jake is a little clumsy and uncoordinated and that causes him to be more cautious.  We were both relieved that he doesn't have more serious issues.  Here are the kiddos stats:

Sarah: 27lbs 0ozs (50th%) & 32.5 inches (23rd%)
Jacob: 30lbs 6ozs (80th%) & 33 inches (20th%)
Lucas: 28lbs 4ozs (55th%) & 33.25 inches (26th%)
