Kodah's First Haircut

Kodah's hair was so long!!!!!!!! It's was about 4 inches on top and on the sides, it covered his ears. I didn't want to cut it, it is part of that baby stage that is just so sentimental to me - the OH SO SOFT & SILKY BABY HAIR! But.. we did it! It was a family affair. Kodah screamed in protest most of the time, I held him, Romeo cut it with the clippers, and Nia and Ian put some of the hair in a ziploc bag for safe keeping. Now he has a big boy fade! He is OH SO HANDSOME!!!

The before

The After


I admit it - I'm a bad mom! It took me a while to decide whether or not I wanted to post pictures of Halloween because I knew it would scream "bad mom" at me. I took pictures of Nia & Kodah..... but not Ian. Awful-I know!!!!!!!

Kodah is 4 months old. Can you believe it? I can't. He has been eating less but getting bigger. He has laughed out loud a few times but is still learning. He loves talking to anyone who will talk back. He has not yet rolled over and he is not sleeping through the night. He is a happy happy boy! Hardly ever cries except when I mess up and have caffeine or anything spicy. Four months comes with real food (well, not in my opinion). He hated it and gagged on it several times. What to do?

Ian is developing such a clever & witty personality.

Our preacher, who has a come back for everything - very witty, had a conversation with Ian the other day about a drawing that Ian had given to him. Rory laid it down on my mom's desk (as if he was leaving it there) and Ian picked it up and gave it to him a second time. I told Rory that he would be checking on it so don't go put that in the trash. So Rory told Ian that he was going to go put it in a super secret place where only he knew where it was. He went on and on about this secret place. And then Ian said, "I know, I know, the trash".

Rory was talking to mom and me and used the word shut-up. Ian told him that was a bad word and that he needed to ask God to forgive him.

At school, lunch time, Ian bent a fork in half! He was trying to show-off. He was waving it around, showing all his friends, he was so proud of himself. His teacher told him to go show the lunch room leader and he said okay like he had done something wonderful. Then the lunch room leader told him to go show Mr. B (the principal) what he had done. He was super excited about showing the principal how strong he was not even realizing that he was in trouble for destroying the fork. He soon realized, after talking to the principal, that he had done something wrong. Dad was called into the office. This story was told to me by a friend of mine that works in the cafeteria. She thought it was hilarious! She thinks Ian is so funny and can't wait to hear what he has to say each morning.
