Issac's First Haircut--5 Months Old

Well, Issac has the hair of a mad scientist as of late and since he has started eating solids, I am having to give more baths each day than I have time for. Sean and I decided that even though Issac was only 5 months old, it was time for a haircut.
Here is the before picture:

And here is the after:

This is the final product. Everyone got their haircut and are all looking pretty spiffy!

Locks of Love

This past weekend, we've had a "cleaning up" session going on here at our house. Out with the old, in with the new kind of stuff. About a month ago, I had mentioned to Abby that we should cut her hair and we could donate it to Locks of Love and help some kids who don't have hair due to health problems. At first, she wasn't interested. But I showed her the website and we've talked about it at different times and I could see that she was warming up to the idea. Well, today we took the plunge and she had 9 1/2 inches cut. I cried. I'll be honest. After she had it done, she said, "Now I can send it to a kid who really needs it, Mommy!" My heart was bursting! What a selfless act!

Missing You

Today, I had an epiphany of sorts. I had dropped Abby and Jaxon off at preschool and on Thursdays, they get to stay for an extra hour for Lunch Bunch. I ran a couple of errands and while I was driving in the parking lot, I saw a bright yellow truck with a bumblebee on it and I shouted out, "Look Jaxon! There's a bumblebee truck!" He wasn't in the car. It was just second nature to point something like that out to him. I realized in that moment that I missed having Abby and Jaxon with me all the time. They are now in the care of someone else for a few hours each day and I miss them. I miss the fighting, the hugs, the smiles and giggles, the begging to go to the toy aisle just for a moment. I have looked forward to the day when both of them would be in school and now that it is here, I miss them.

My little Picasso's

We told the kids that when we moved into our new house, they would be able to pick colors for their rooms and we would paint. Since my appendix decided that it just HAD to come out the week before we were supposed to move, the painting didn't get done. It's been 2 months now since we've been in this house and we are finally getting around to painting. This was Abby and Jaxon painting Abby's room. They were getting paint all over themselves so we stripped them down to the bare minimum and they had a ball! Sean was such a trooper--I seriously thought he was going to go nuts with all of the "are we going to paint yet?" questions he was getting!

First day of School

So, it's our first day of preschool and the kids were so excited! And to be honest, so was mom!
Jax could hardly wait to see Mrs. Bachus and Mrs. DeLoca and to play in the sandbox. He's been waiting a whole year!
Abby was so excited to be in the 4's class! She was a little nervous to meet her new teachers but she had so much fun once she got there!
