John Turner had to go to the pediatrician yesterday for his 4 month check-up and shots. He did much better with everything this visit. He played with the nurse and the pediatrician while they checked him out. He screamed during his shots but as soon as the nurse finished he quit crying and calmed down quickly! Last time we almost never got him to calm down. He is growing into a big boy! At almost 4 and 1/2 months old he weighs 15 lbs. and is 26 in. long! He is between the 75th and 90th percentile for height and only in the 50th percentile for weight. Looks like we may have a tall boy! Carlton got excited about that because being tall will help him in sports(you know Carlton already thinks he is going to be a sports star!!)

Here are a few pics of him playing with his favorite toys this morning before his appointment.

This is John Turner showing off his Scooby Doo bandaid!

I had to post a picture of the deer Carlton killed yesterday! He is so excited! He killed this 10 point yesterday afternoon on his land in Alabama! John Turner and I are very excited also. Not because of this deer but because hunting season ends this weekend!! YEAH!!!!

Good Times With Old Friends!

This weekend two of my best friends from college came for a visit! It was so nice to get to spend time with Kelley and Susan(Suzer)-of course it was good to see Brandon and Blair, their husbands, as well! We also got to spend time with Kelley and Brandon's precious little girl, Camilla! We haven't been able to visit with them since the week John Turner was born. I wish I got to see them more often!

A New Toy!

Since John Turner turned 4 months old this week we thought he deserved a new toy! My friend, Christi, had told me about this toy that her little girl, Audrey, had gotten for Christmas. Audrey is only about 1 month older than John Turner. After I saw the pictures of sweet Audrey playing in hers, I had to get John Turner one too! It says that they can start getting in it at 4 months so we tried it yesterday. He had to be propped up with a blanket, but he really seems to enjoy all of the cool toys! I hope this brings many hours of entertainment to our lives! Thanks to Christi for the recommendation!!

Our Baby Is 4 Months Old!

John Turner turned 4 months old yesterday! Where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday we were bringing him home! We have our 4 month check-up and shots on the 26th.

A New Addition To The Watt Family!

John Turner is proud to announce that he has a new first cousin! Logan Thomas Watt was born around lunch today. He weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces and was 21 inches long. The proud parents are Carlton's brother, Justin, and his wife, Eva. We are very excited about watching Logan and John Turner grow up together since they are so close in age. We are thinking they will cause a lot of mischief together!

The proud Mom and Dad with their new bundle of joy!

This Is Much Better Than That Pacifier!

John Turner has decided that his thumb is much better than his pacifier!

John Turner's Great Grandmother Emily hand stitched this quilt for him. What a special keepsake it is!
