First Home Haircut

I have been debating on getting Jax's hair cut for a while now.  His little curls have been getting a bit out of control lately.  Although it is cute, I wanted him to have a clean up beofre his birthday.  So I decided to get his hair cut when I got mine cut today.  Well, he got sick a few days ago, so when it was time to go today, he just was not feeling it.  So I left him at home, much to my mom's rejoice.  My mom did not want me to cut his precious little baby curls off.  So she was a happy camper today.

When I got home, I decided, I would give it a go and see if he would et me cut it.  At first he said no and ran away, but once I offered him fishies if he let me cut it, he stand there and turned when I needed to get the back and sides like a pro.  He did such a good job and was so excited when we were done. 

I love his baby curls too, so I just gave t a trim and I think it turned out fine.  It just looks a little more cleaned up but he's still got his curls for the time being.

Without further adue...Here he is. :-)
See, I did fine.  He still looks beautiful.

Well, Jax finally went potty on his potty in front of me last night.  He has gone for his Ahma and his Grandparents but not for us yet.  After his dinner, I decided to put him on the potty to see if he would go.  When I took his diaper off, it was pretty full so I didn't have much hope, but I put him on there anyway.  He said he wanted to take his shirt off too.  So he just sat there naked.  I gave him a book and then I started to read to him.  As I am reading to him I kept asking him if he had to go potty.  He just said potty back to me.  After reading the whole book, I asked him if he was done and he looked between his legs and said I see it!  And I looked and didn't see anything.  So, I told him to stay on the potty so I could put his clothes away and when I got back, he kept saying I see it, and pointing in the bowl.  So finally, I got down there and looked real close and shook the bowl and low and behold, there was pee in there.  Quite a bit too.  I got so excited and lifted him up and told him how proud I was of him.  He didn't seem to excited but he was proud of himself.  Once we got his diaper back on, he showed Tony what he did and Tony was pretty excited for him too.

So far he has gone 1-3x a day for the past couple of days. We aren't really pushing it yet.  We are taking it very slow.  We have to be careful because we have a very stubborn little boy on our hands and we don't want to mess this experience up.  He starts a new class at school in 2 weeks that handles potty breaks so we will pursue it more then if he hasn't gotten the hang of it by then.

I can not wait to be done with diapers.  I know it is still a ways off, but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Good job bubba.

Only a few more weeks and you will be 2 years old.  I can't believe it.  You are changing every day and turning from my little baby into this wonderful little boy.  You are so smart and quick to learn things.  You give great big hugs and kisses and love to cuddle in the morning.
  • You sing your ABCs (or your ABs as you call them) in your own little order.  
  • You can pick out letters from words.  You know them from sight.
  • You can count to 12
  • You know that one hand equals 5 and two hands equals 10.
  • You learned to climb out of your crib, so now you are in your big boy bed.
  • You love your big boy bed, but it is a big transition to sleep in there all night.  
  • You still end up in our bed after a few hours.
  • You share your fishies with anyone who wants one, even Sadie.

  • You have peed on the potty 3x now.  
  • You don't like loud noises.

  • You are reading and singing to yourself all the time now.  It is so cute.
  • Your favorite books are anything about Marley, Biscuit, Dora and Micky Mouse.
  • You ask to say prayers every night and you tell me who to bless and then I fill in anybody you can't remember.  You love to say Amen at the end.
