Melissa Amber Seals
At two years old, Melissa's most-often-spoken word was "no." Ah, the terrible twos ran amuck in the Seals household again.
At her 2-year-old checkup with Dr. Paul Jarvis, Melissa was 36½ inches tall and weighed 26 pounds. Tall and skinny continued. And she finally had hair - lots and lots of cute adorable curls. Be sure to check out the portraits!
Melissa had a good vocabulary, but could be difficult to understand at times. She was working hard to learn her colors and numbers, and only had mild interest in learning the alphabet. Her favorite thing to do was count fingers. She was starting to hold her own with Aaron, but since he was bigger, he usually won when it came to push and shove (literally!).
