Luke’s First Haircut

Lucas was born needing a haircut. Seriously. We waited until he was 5 days shy of his 8 month “birthday” before caving in and taking him. The “SHE’s so cute” comments at the grocery store when HE was dressed from head to toe in blue had to end.

We took Lucas to Kid Snips and I took a lot of pictures to remember the experience. Here are a few of my favorites:

Look at that mop head :)

Mommy, what are they doing to me?

Putting the final touches on it

I couldn’t believe how much a haircut could change him so much. He looks so grown-up!

My Baby Boy Is Growing Up!

I was at work today and I got a text saying “guess what Jacob learned to do today?”… well turns out he learned to jump out of his bed! I knew it was coming but thought maybe I had at least a few more months of crib “safety”.

After being assured he was ok my thoughts immediately went to figuring out a plan for Jacob’s sleeping arrangement. His dad thought he was too young to be done with his crib but I don’t think he is. We decided to take the rail off of his crib and put up a bed rail so he doesn’t fall out.

As I write this he has been in bed for over two hours and not gotten up. The big test will be what happens when he wakes up in the morning…

Here are some pictures (and yes, next step is to lose the pacifiers at bedtime)
