We had been debating it for ages – how to cut Jacob’s hair and how short. It was getting long again, and the curls in the back were getting unmanagable. Unruly, matted and tangled as soon as the poor tyke woke up.
I was working on the computer, I don’t quite recall what I was doing. After a while I emerged from the office to prepare dinner. Where’s Paul? I wondered as I walked back to the bedroom to see if I could find him. I walked into our bathroom and there they were. Jacob sitting happily on the counter with a pile of hair around him – Paul shears in hand. Jacob looked at me and I nearly choked, his hair was so SHORT! Paul had used an 8 guard, but it was still really short. The lack of hair wasn’t really what got to me, but the fact that he didn’t look like a baby anymore. He all of a sudden looked so grown up. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of the two boys and the hair cutting, which I was really dissapointed about, but I did get the bath after pictures, and some others.
Doesn’t his special zipper look fabulous? The surgeon really did such a great job. 🙂
Now those too look so much alike it’s almost scary! 🙂
I just love this photo for some reason – he looks so cute and funny eating on the wrong end of his fork.
Jacob loves to hide from us and play peek-a-boo. He’ll squeal, “Where go?” and dive under blankets or anything else, but will allways peek to see if you are watching.
That’s my boy! A true book lover at heart! 🙂
Isn’t he adorable and look so grown up now? But, I must confess, I do miss those curls. 🙂 (We might let it grow just long enough to start to curl before we chop it off again.)
