Rhett's first haircut

Although my heart was a bit sad, I knew it was time to face the music and get Rhett's hair cut when I realized that from the back he looked just like the little girls in his Bible class... only they had big bows. It is always a little sad to me when my kids have their first firsts. Rhett has had some major ones recently, including walking, so adding his first haircut to the baby book made me a little emotional about the quick passage of time, but he sure did look handsome when he was finished. No more mistaking him for a little girl or a boy with a mullet. I figure he would appreciate it if he were aware of his hair issue...

BTW: For your child's first hair cut, take him/her to Cool Cuts for Kids. They give you a little certificate with a snip of their hair, and they take a picture of the finished product. Great for the baby book.




Where did all of my hair go?

Grant loves to read!

Grant has always loved books. Perhaps it is because he has never known life without them. Sure, there are certain types he loves: tractor books, science books and human body books (nonfiction), and he also loves fictional stories as every child does. In these two pictures, however, he is "reading" his beloved "Dobdon Books" (Dobson books). Who doesn't enjoy reading on their motorcycle while sitting on the books you plan to read first thing in the morning??? He must have gotten his love of reading from his Daddy's side of the family,
or maybe from my mom/dad. He sure did not get it from me!

This morning he placed himself on the kitchen window seat with a pillow, blanket, puppies, a small fan (not sure why the fan... is it because the blanket he chose is super thick???) and of course, he is again "reading" his "Dobdon Books".
Since he really can't read (don't tell him that though - it would really upset him), he is sure one of the books is about animals, and one of them is about trees, and another is about cars based on a few pictures the books have... I don't have the heart to tell him he is waaaaaaaaaay off.
