Hair Cut

Dashiel's hair kept getting longer and longer but I was so nervous to cut it. I have no experience cutting todder's hair. And for heaven's sake, he doesn't want to sit still long enough for me to change his diaper let alone his hair. I had tried to trim it in little bits, but he still had bangs and it was far from being finished. So on Saturday while I was gone to a baby shower. Trevor grabbed the boy and pinned him down--no, wait, he didn't do that. All he had to do was give Dashiel an empty water bottle to play with and he cut Dashiel's hair with his beard trimmer. It looks so great!

By the way, did I mention it is getting harder and harder to get good pictures of the boy? As soon as he sees me with the camera he wants it. Nothing anyone can relate to, I'm sure! =)

Okay, so I've been getting some flack about not posting in a long, long time. Let me explain. I tried to get creative with my blog and just plain got frustrated! So now I've got a generic background until I figure out what I want so I can meanwhile keep in touch with the world--so to speak.

So it has been almost a year since I last posted and so very much has happened. First of all, we recently celebrated Dashiel's first birthday! Holy cow it has been a year! We had a lot of fun and he really enjoyed his cake experience--or should I say sugar rush. He was so hyper after all that sugar. He kept darting back and forth and laughing, and then when bedtime came he crashed.

Dashiel is also walking. He has been taking steps on his own for about a month now. Often Trevor and I would try to help him by holding his hands but he is a stubborn little boy and only wanted to do it when it was his idea. After weeks of just taking a few steps here and there but rather defaulting to crawling, something suddenly clicked 10 days ago and he has now switched to preferring the upright position. He is such a character.

Well, can't spill all the news right away or I will bore everyone. More later! Enjoy pics!
