We went to the Sterling's for dinner not to long ago, and the kids both got their first haircuts! (Yes, Georgia is almost 3 and has never had even a trim!!!). Jackson's hair was growing over his ears and he was beginning to form a bit of a mullet. Amber did a GREAT job. Jackson was very amused by a popsicle, and then a lollipop when he had polished that off. Georgia was SO desperate to get her haircut too that she sat still like an angel with no bribery needed. :) While we were along for the ride, I got my haircut too. Two days later, I cut Brian's hair - just buzzed it. Amber and Cory were right in saying that it is not a good thing for your marriage - ha! I am not so swift with the clippers and Brian is a bit of a perfectionist (bad combination). I guess I would rather fork over the $15 than go through the stress of the haircut. Actually, it wasn't that bad. It was actually my best haircutting job yet (I think I may have done it 3 other times, so really, the only way I can go is up!). Brian only had to touch up a few spots and he even complimented me on my work afterward! Yea. But, I think in everyone's best interest, I'll leave the haircutting to Amber.Jackson loving his purple popsicle. He may have eaten equal parts popsicle and hair.The final outcome - so handsome! Amber is a pro!Georgia is eating this up!!! She begged to have it cut - Amber maybe took 1/8th of an inch off, but it was the greatest thing ever in Georgia's eyes.Georgia now says everyday, "Mommy, I need to get a haircut again!" = she would have it everyday if she could!
So I let Georgia and Jackson play outside in the sprinkler the other day because it was so hot. Who needs a pool membership when you have a good old garden hose and sprinkler to run through?!? They LOVED it!!! Georgia was getting the biggest kick out of spraying Jackson - Brian and I keep saying that he is going to be one tough cookie when he gets older!
Well, Jackson had taken 7 or so steps on his birthday, but he now likes to walk everywhere. It was about 5 or so days ago when he decided that he would rather walk than crawl. He gets himself to standing and then takes off. He is not quite keeping up with Georgia (but at her pace, it may take awhile!) but he does just fine! Check him out!
