Half a Year

6 months... half of a year... 180 days...

All I know is that it goes by fast! Can't believe 6 months ago I was in the hospital with an 8 pound baby wondering if he would get off of his oxygen, and now I am sitting at home with a growing little boy who is eating fruits and vegetables! God is good! It has flown by. Everyone says that every stage of childhood development gets better and better and I have to agree. John Turner is getting so fun, but he is such a busy body!

 Yesterday I was standing at the kitchen sink washing bottles when I looked into the den (which is connected to the kitchen) and I couldn't see John Turner. I immediately got nervous. Where could he have gone? I just looked in the den 30 seconds ago and he was fine. It's not like he can walk... Low and behold I found him hiding...

under the chair! Just barely sticking out! 
Guess he wanted to take is giraffe rattle with him!

John Turner rolled and rolled and turned until he found his way underneath the living room chair! What am I going to do with him!

Today was a busy and crazy day. Lindsay Nicholls came and took John Turner's 6 month pictures. Since I have been on Fall Break this week, John Turner has been sleeping late, until 8:30, and has been in such a good mood. Well of course today he decided to wake up at 6:30! So by the time Lindsay got to our house at 8:45, he had not had a nap and only eaten his rice cereal. I was trying to feed him a bottle when Lindsay walked in. Well, that did it! He was too distracted to eat anymore. He had to find out who Lindsay was. 

I think Lindsay got some really great shots of him around our house and in his nursery. Gunter came home from work for a few family shots, but our time was wearing thin by that point, because remember John Turner had not eaten or taken a nap. Lovely I know! Hopefully he is smiling in a few. 

We were so busy the rest of the day, I forgot to take his monthly photo. Oh - No! So I had to settle for a sleepy picture. 

Hopefully, in the next few days,  I can get some good pictures of him sitting up and maybe even his teeth!

War Eagle! It's a big weekend for the Auburn Tigers!

Catch Up

Here is what we've been doing the past 3 weeks....

John Turner will be 6 months on Thursday! He is growing like a weed. He has 2 teeth coming in on the bottom! So that has not been fun. He has been fussy when they are cutting through the gums. Now he is looking more like a little man!

John Turner loves playing on the floor! He can stay down there for hours! And here is his new love....
Blah Blah! 

John Turner loves to wrestle with  Blah Blah on the floor. Blah Blah was a gift from Mrs. Smith, Sydney's mom. Blah Blah has been in John Turner's crib... but he just now discovered him and loves him! 

John Turner also loves his Little Tikes swing. He swings most days, when it's not rainy or too windy! We also have been watching quite a bit of football outside, so this is a great seat for John Turner. He can see the TV perfectly to cheer on his Auburn Tigers! 

We've been hanging out with our friends the Barfields. Blayne and Justin just had Lilly a few weeks ago. They came over to watch the Auburn South Carolina game with us last weekend. John Turner loved Lilly. You can see they are "sharing" the toy. John Turner rolled over on her a few times and tried to "kiss"her. Already after the ladies ....

And finally, John Turner has decided to be into everything! He will roll out of his bouncey seat if you're not watching him. The other day he rolled into the kitchen while I wasn't looking and then got mad that he hit is head on the hardwood floors.

Thursday, Lindsay Nicholls is coming to take his 6 month pictures! I can't wait, because she does great work! 

War Eagle!
