Sea Grove Beach 2012- Part 1

 OHHH....I miss this place.  We have never stayed in Sea Grove before, but it was wonderful.  It's just down the road from Seaside which had most of the restaurants and activity, and I loved being more in a community with less traffic and people.  It was great!  Because we took so many pictures, this is just a start.  All our family pictures are to come!

 Our house was just across the street from the ocean, so we rented a golf cart so we wouldn't have to walk with all of our stuff. It was perfect.  We had a private pool in the back so we could still be in the sun and water, but the kids could nap inside.
Our last day :(

 Asa and his three (boy) cousins.

 My beautiful sis in law!  I had on heels and she had on flats. I'm not a giant as the picture would make you think.

 Great Southern restaurant in Seaside. Delish!

 My sis and beautiful niece, Lilly

I got a good snapshot of Branton (middle nephew).  What a cutie!

 They had an outdoor theater and a play happened to just be starting that night. It was so fun to see all the kids enjoy it.

 Asa LOVED the beach. The water, sand, he loved it all.  He just wanted to walk everywhere.


His hair was just blowing every which way. I could never expect it to lay just the way I wanted. And..I'm talking about Asa not Joe. :)

 My brother and his sweet family.  I love Bennett's "Cheese" face.

 Every other night, a couple could go on a date night by themselves.  My brother and sister decided to do their date nights on the same night, so we were left with all five kids.  It got kinda crazy, but we managed, and had a great time.  I didn't know a burger the size of a sausage and biscuit for a kids meal would cost $12.  yikes.

 Lilly girl and me

His "camera" eyes...

Asa is 19 months, but  I never updated (mainly for myself) for Asa's 18 month check up, so I'll wrap up by giving Asa's Stats:
(this was not adjusted for his preemie age- yeah!  They will adjust him until he is two, but I decided to list what according to his age now since he is doing so great!!)

25 pounds, 10 ounces (50th)
33 inches long (75th)
Head was 75th. I forget the actual measurement.
Size 4 diaper
Size 5-6 shoe
2T clothes

-Still giving inhaler twice daily until he is 3 years old.

-Had a speech evaluation yesterday, came in at only having a "mild delay".  A moderate delay would require speech.  Only three points from it, but I'm thankful for a good report.  In the last few weeks, he has said SO MANY new words.  It's awesome to hear and watch him learn everyday.  

-He got the MMR shot at his 18 month and had a reaction.  Apparently, 70% of patients have it.  He had measle- like bumps and fever for 4 days, 10 days after he received the shot.  So...for anyone that is about to get it, just a heads up to look out for it.  It wasn't bad at all, and it didn't seem to bother him.

We had a GREAT time in Florida.  Asa did great on the way down and back. Better than expected!

More pics to come!

  1. Love the photos of your sweet family! Little Asa isn't so little anymore. Let me know if you're in LR in July at all. I'd love to see you and meet Asa! We ran into your parents at Fellowship last time we were in town.
