Beach Trip-September 2009

We were fortunate enough to get to go to the beach one more time before beach weather is officially over! We had a great time on this beach trip! We went down with our friends, Erin and Chad and their sweet baby girl, Harper. We stayed at The Caribe which is such an amazing place!! John Turner still liked the pool and he even got in the ocean with his daddy this time. The water and sun still made him so tired! He didn't last for very long periods of time out in the sun and water. He especially loved riding down the lazy river with his daddy! Here are a few pictures of John Turner having some fun with Harper!

Here are a few more pictures of John Turner.

12 Month Check-Up

We took John Turner to visit his pediatrician Monday for his twelve month check-up and shots. He weighed in at 19 lbs 4 oz and was 30 inches long. He has grown two inches since his 9 month check-up, but he hasn't gained an ounce! I was a little concerned about the no weight gain, but the doctor didn't seem too concerned about it so that made me feel better. She said it is very normal for kids at this age to slow down on the weight gain because they are so active. Since we don't weigh 20 pounds yet, we will be still facing backwards in our new car seat!

Since John Turner was born we have known that his frenulum is connected to his tongue in a way that doesn't allow him to stick his tongue all the way out. I was born with this same problem and had my frenulum clipped when I was two years old. This could lead to speech problems when he is older. We are going to go and visit a pediatric ENT in the next few months and see if he thinks John Turner needs to go ahead and have his clipped, or if we need to wait on his speech to develop and see if there is a problem. I will keep everyone posted on this.

While he was there he got a whole bunch of shots. He did great with the shots. It is always so much worse on me than it is on him! He came home and took a long nap. After he got up from his nap, had some milk, and snuggled with his daddy for a while he was fine!

Bama fooball has begun! The best thing is that we started it off with a win! John Turner didn't get to enjoy very much of this game because it started at 7:00. He was asleep by 7:30! We still dressed him up and took some pictures of course!

First Haircut

John Turner's hair has been growing like crazy! It was getting so long in the back that it was beginning to resemble a mullet!! LOL!! Since his birthday party is coming up next weekend, we decided to take him to see Mrs. Cheryl for his first haircut. He wasn't so sure about it at first, but once Mrs. Cheryl gave him a sucker, he didn't care what she did to him!

He loved when Mrs. Cheryl used the razor on him! He thought it was so funny!

This is what happened when his haircut was over and Daddy took away his sucker!

He looks like such a big boy with his new haircut!
