Wordless Wednesday - Stuck


Friday, March 19, 2010



Sean turned another year older a few weeks ago which means it’s time for his doctors to poke and prod again.  So far he has had his physical and his allergy retest.  Next week is the pulmonologist.  Growth and Nutrition is a few weeks after that.

First up, his physical.

This went pretty well.  Although he has all of a sudden become a bit wary of doctors.  He used to see them every week when he was younger.  But now that a few months have passed between visits he has decided to protest.  Meghan is still worse.  She cannot even watch someone else get a shot.  We can probably rule out a medical career path for that one.

His stats:

Height: 36.5”

Weight: 27.13lbs

He’s progressing.  That puts him above the 5th percentile for weight.  Which makes him normal.  However, I’m not going to count it until his growth and nutrition appointment.  There they are more precise with the weight measurement.  Plus, he was fully dressed this time.  He does seem to be doing well, though.

Next, the allergist.

Aaaand… change.

He is still allergic to milk and milk protein.  He gets retested in a year. 

I was hoping that he wouldn’t have to start preschool with his food allergy.  Maybe we can shoot for Kindergarten.

Turks & Caicos: Part I just want to finish this already


I lost track of exactly what I mentioned and what I may not have.  I do know that I skipped the pools.  There are a BUNCH of pools at the Beaches resort.  Plus, a water park.

Water Park

Since we were last there, they have added some waterslides, a lazy river and a kids water area.  The lazy river was nice.  Relaxing.  I did go on one of the slides and it was pretty fun.  The kids loved the smaller slides and pirate ship water area.  Sean did manage to whack his head on the concrete at the bottom of one slide the very first day we were there.  They should really extend the cushy mats they have and anchor them to the ground somehow.  They were sliding away from the slides.

Oh, and they have a surf simulator but we did not try it.

And I managed to get exactly zero pictures of the water park.


If we were going to go to a pool, we hit either the French Village or the new Italian Village pool.  Both were heated and both had a small kids pool.  Every pool had a bar so that was never a concern.  Because that, obviously, is a requirement.

***We did not receive any type of compensation at all for these wonderfully descriptive (ahem) reviews.  However, if Sandals resorts would like to offer us a vacation we would not turn them away.  :)
