CLEANED UP & READY TO GO...


I gave my sweet, tiny infant (yes, that's still how I see him-- all 27+ pounds) his first haircut yesterday, before church. I'm not sure why, but it was really hard for me. Really hard. I think I view it as him growing up. He's not the little baby I still see him as. Now, he looks like a little boy. ("What did he look like before?" you may ask. "A baby," I tell myself.) He looks handsome still, but just in a little boy way and not a little baby way. When did he grow up? It makes me sad. I knew it would happen eventually. 

I love you, my baby. My sweet, little BOY.

What a stud! I don't want to cute Franklin's hair yet, I think it'll make me sad, but I don't need to yet because he's still a little bald. However, he does have long stragglies that are funny.

I don't have to worry about trimming/cutting Andie's hair for quite some time. She absolutely has NO hair. My little baldy. I love it when the little baby boys look like little men. So cute. I hope I can experience that one day because if it doesn't happen on the next try, it's not going to happen. I'm not one of those people that will have 12 sons to finally get their one daughter or vise versa. NO THANKS!!!

Cute little guy! Although he sounds pretty big! I can't until Afton has enough hair to were I even dare to cut any of it.

I know exactly how you feel. I cry internally everytime I get Cooper's haircut. This last time his curls didn't really come back, so there were lots of internal tears. :)
