First Haircut!!

My big boy, who sleeps in his 'big boy bed', who wants to help out with all kinds of housework as well as yard work, got his first hair cut today. CRAZY.

You may be thinking, No! Not the little curls!!  But seriously, he looked adorable, but he was starting to have his own hair days that requited a hat. haha- check out this amazing do after his nap today.

Our little buddy went to a kids hair cut place called Snip its - and they were really good.  Honestly, he was really really good.  Sat up in the chair, watched their little sing along video while he got his hair cut.

Had to get it sprayed down with water.

Scissors, check.

Clippers, check.

I've removed the color for the safety of your eyes and mine.  :-)  This store was SERIOUSLY colorful, haha.

Our boy is going to look awesome in all the pictures with his new baby brother Hayden.  We are excited for that day, and our 'big brother' is too!

Proud Daddy.  Proud Mommy.  Such a big boy- can I lament how I can't believe he's growing up so fast.  Can I blame pregnancy hormones??  I feel like he's already starting down that road towards independence.  Hopefully I can keep up!  My sweet little blue eyed, red head.

Thanks Mr. Snip It!! haha

F is for Family.

James was excited to have his Aunty Michelle come visit last weekend and so was I!  It was great to be able to go get my Dr appointment out of the way without taking James AND I got to go get my hair cut too! :-)  So happy to get a fresh hair cut before my little Hayden arrives!

ps. we are at an AMAZING French bakery called Amelie's here in Charlotte.  De-licious.  Seriously.

We also have had the pleasure of having Matt's cousin Rachel come visit with us for a while.  It was so great to have her come with me to my 'sprinkle' for baby Hayden!  Yeah for Family.  James has another honorary 'Auntie'!!

D is for Dada

Daddy's little buddy

I don't know if any boy could love his daddy more. :-)

Love for Hayden.

My sweet girlfriends in Hickory celebrated my sweet little Hayden today.  I have been so blessed to share my pregnancy with my wonderful friend Meredith.  I am so excited that our little boys will be so close in age.  It has been such a special blessing to have my little boy James growing up with friends his age- I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Thank you for all the sweet gifts, laughs, love, food, advice, encouragement, prayers, and cake!  I feel very blessed to have friends like you.

Sweet baby Hayden.  Sweet baby Jude.

So sweet to share such a special time with my girlfriends.
