What a Happy Day!
First of all, happy birthday to my brother Brian, who I know wont read this anyway, but I love you and I can not believe you are a year away from 30!! I miss spending our birthdays together! Also, shout out to my sissy, Cindi, who's 20th birthday is tomorrow! No longer a teenager! Though it seems to me that she hasn't been one for a while... I love you guys!
It's a good day today for the Meyers family, too! They boarded their cruise today and Jessica has been sending me pictures of the ship, the buffet, the lobby, etc. I will tell you...looking at those pics from my phone during Sunday School made it really hard for me not to be jealous! We wish we could be with you guys and hope you have a wonderful time! But I know we are having little Joshua at the right time and I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world (though my body tries to tell me differently...)!
Another reason it was a happy day today is we FINALLY gave Sam his first hair cut! We have been saying we were going to do it for a while but timing hasn't been right and daddy finally remembered after church! I have to say my husband did an EXCELLENT job for it being the first time he has ever cut anyone's hair with actual scissors...let alone a moving toddler! We gave Sam a bunch of m&m's to keep him occupied and it worked like a charm, though he still moved his head a lot. He was very brave and didn't even think of the scissors as a deady weapon, or the fact that his hair was being cut off and landing in his lap. He is a brave smart boy! Anyway, it looks so good and I am so sad about missing those blond curls (I saved them in a zip lock bag that I will keep in his baby book) but it was getting sooo long and shabby, it was beyond time for it to go! He was developing what looked to be a curly rat tail in the back. I just can't believe now that I have seen it cut how much I LOVE it! I thought it'd make me sad, and of course part of it does because my baby is growing up, but it made me so happy because he looks so much more like an actual little boy now instead of a baby! He is so handsome and I just love it. One more step in making me realize he will be a big brother soon and not the "tiny guy" anymore!
I'm sure you all know how he looked before, but here is a pic from the other day of the shabby curls and rat tail in the back...
And here are the pictures during the cut and after while he admires himself in the mirror...
