Ryan's First Haircut

I LOVED Ryan's curls...I thought that they were awesome! It took me a long, long time to actually ponder the idea of a hair cut. I mean..he had ringlets...loved them! :) But, they were getting long...and very tangly. I have been using detangler for a while, and was getting tired of fighting the mess. So, I agreed to get his hair cut. I feel like I have been ready for about 2 weeks. It was still hard though. Part of it was that this means he is growing up and becoming less of a baby. Something I'm sure I will fight his whole life. :) Even though he didn't do very well through the hair cut, it was still a memorable experience.

We took Ryan to a kids salon called Pig Tails and Crew Cuts. It was awesome. I don't think I'll ever pay that much for a hair cut again, but for the first, it was fun. He sat in a fire truck, watched Curious George, had bubbles blown at him and had a lollipop. This place is genious! Here is day: 

The ringlets...I will miss them :(
Waiting for our appt. They had a train table...Ryan LOVED it! :)

siting in the cool fire truck...he was super excited about that part! :)

still doing well! :) 

And then.....

he was not a fan of the actual hair cut....

made me sad :(

even the lollipop didn't help...but he held on tight to it. :) 

they tried bubbles too...they were really great!

And when we were done...he lived through it and enjoyed his lollipop :) 

Afterwards...we went to our favorite park at Liberty Station in Point he is sportin his new hair:

Another milestone: First Haircut on December 2, 2011. I will miss your curls, but I love your new 'big boy' look as well. We love you so much, and are so blessed to be able to experience life with you! 

Christmas pictures :)

It's that time of year again...time to order the Christmas cards! :) We were so lucky to have friends in our small group who are professional photographers! We had them over for breakfast, and they took our pictures...I like that arrangement. :) We had a lot of fun, and am super happy about how they turned out. Enjoy :)
