The First Haircut

We called it his "duck tail". This doesn't adequately show how every cute little tendril would all curl up together at the back of his head, but it's a pretty good shot with how long it was getting. What to do when you're little guy looks bald as it is? I did not want to play the part of Delilah, and take away the progress we were making with his mane. But, it was time to clean things up. So of course we want to make it memorable and I thought....what would be more special than mommy doing it herself?! No pressure.Where do we start? How do we keep him still? We need something to occupy him, we need something to try to save the little curls, we need steady hands, we need a miracle.
Whoooops, pull those scissors away quickly!

Actually he did really well. Aunt Kaitlyn was a a huge help as always, Grandma took pictures, and daddy filmed the whole thing. It is a little rough, but I'm happy with the outcome. The scariest parts were around his ears, and if I really want to get serious with those spots I will wait until he is fast asleep.
Happy Haircut Boy!

Our sweet precious boy doesn't walk anywhere. He likes to run! He's wanted to run since he learned he had the ability to stand up. Any time he would watch an older kid race by he so desperately wanted to join in. Ladies and gentlemen, he has joined the marathon and boy does he sprint. It's been weeks now of trying to keep up with him. I'm not sure I'm in shape enough to for this stage! It's not quite an elegant run, (picture Frankenstein's monster disjointedly moving his joints as fast as possible) but he sure can move quickly. It is so cute though. His chin jutting out back and forth, his arms flailing about, and his little feet trying to keep up. He is all boy!
Connor also likes to dance and sing. I catch him singing to himself during play time and it just warms my heart. My favorite song is the "Mama" song, that sometimes changes to the "Dada" song, yet it is the most precious and special. It's just two notes repeated over and over again, but it is a Grammy winner for sure. He also has been dancing up a storm recently. He has his new "Chuggington" arm move that he picked up somewhere along the way, that changes to arms above the head and then swaying back and forth, sometimes accompanied by some foot stomping. It really makes me giggle! He likes to participate in our rehearsals at church, and I'd say "he's got the moves like Jagger".
The last visit we took up to Liberty we purchased Connor this great little t-shirt. I love it because it has a front and a back and he is finally big enough to sport it. We've got a future student in the the flames!
