First Things First

The same day that we had little Matty we went to get Joey's first haircut. It was one of the things that we planned to do on our last day as a family of 3. We had planned to get his haircut, and go to a park to fly some kites and then to have a dinner out all together. The next day my mom was arriving and we'd have company until long after baby. Little did we know (although we expected) that I was in labor that day, since it wasn't painful at first (and well could have been false labor) and since it was 5 days early.

So mid-afternoon found us at Snips getting Joey's first haircut. I'm so glad that we still had a chance to share this special time as a family. Matt took along his camera and captured the occasion and afterwards we let Joey play with the plethora of toys at the shop.

So as you can see, there's still a little curl to it, in the back. *sigh*.... a little

More to come soon, and baby pictures of course!!

Joey looks so grown up. Must be a passage to becoming a big brother. He still has his baby face though!

Hooray! I'm so proud of you :) You did it, brave mama. And now isn't it fun to see him look like such a grown up little man?? He's ADORABLE!!

awww, he looks so much older with his hair cut! (probably not what you want to hear...!) I am debating on whether or not to get Kathryn's hair cut in the back (we've never done it yet!).
