Today was my little man’s first haircut!  I was very excited but also a little nervous because I wasn’t sure if he would sit still or not.  Saying he’s a VERY squirmy baby, is an understatement.  So, I wasn’t quite sure how it would go.

I picked him up from the sitter and started driving.  Literally two minutes later, he was asleep.  He slept the whole way to Kid Snips.  I thought he would wake up when we got there and I took him out of the car seat, but he didn’t.  But, I still wanted to get his hair cut so the stylist cut his hair while he was curled up in my arms asleep.  It was so sweet and I loved it! He woke up at the very end just in time for her to take his picture.

Here is a picture of his hair before.  Notice his long hair swept over to the side.  
And here it is after:

Here is a picture of the certificate they give you for a baby’s first haircut.  It’s really cute.  They put a lock of their hair on it and the picture they take:

I definitely enjoyed this special moment with my son today, despite the fact that he slept through it.  Yes, I paid $18 for a hair cut for an 11 month old. But, it was worth it since it was his first one (and my husband will cut his hair from now on, so no big deal paying for one hair cut).  Now I can put that cute certificate in his baby book and remember this day always.

First hair cut = Success!!

My son is very proud of himself.  And he should be because he just learned a new skill.  After about two weeks of trying and failing, my little man finally figured out how to pull himself to stand all by himself.

The day he figured it out, I had put him in the pack ‘n play while I was cooking in the kitchen.  He was playing and having fun in there.  I’d glance back at him every once in a while to see what he was up to.  While I was working I the stove, I suddenly heard him squeal in delight.  I turned around to see him standing up.  His hands were on the edge of the Pack ‘n Play and his little head was peaking over it.  He had a HUGE grin on his face and his expression said it all, “Look what I just did mommy”!  I laughed when I saw him and ran to give him a kiss.  Then, of course, I grabbed the camera. Since you all know what a crazy camera woman I am, this should come as no surprise.  It was a momentous occasion for our family.  One more milestone achieved!

It’s so hard to believe we’ve reached this point already.  I look at him and can’t believe he is 10 1/2 months old, crawling, standing, and ready to cruise the furniture.  Next step, walking.

It’s really true what people say, it all goes by so fast.

See what else I’m up to!
