First haircut!

Yup, we finally decided that H's hair has gone from shaggy chic to just shaggy. So we finally decides to take him for a haircut. We chose one of those shops where he gets to ride in an airplane while they cut his hair, and have tons of toys to distract him. I'm happy to report that he didn't cry at all, at least not until the haircut was over and mommy wouldn't let him play with the scissors.

We couldn't quite bring ourselves to cut off his baby curls, so his hair is still long. But I think it's looking much more like big kid hair now.

Rainy day activities

Today was cold and drizzly. James had to work and H was bored and cranky. I was feeling at a loss for what to do when suddenly it occurred to me... The library!

Between a long walk, some Christmas shopping, a good chunk of time crawling around the library, and a coffee stop at little nest where there are lots of entertaining kids and toys, the afternoon flew by. I'm looking forward to more of these trips in the rainy weeks to come.

Step step

Yesterday we witnessed H's very first steps all on his own! He took two steps to get from the couch to the rocking horse while James and I were busy talking. Up 'til now he's taken a few steps if we direct him to walk from one of us to the other. But this was his first time choosing walking all on his own! Walking by Christmas? Lets hope so!
