KJ's New Haircut

Well, yesterday we decided it was time KJ needed another haircut... Chad's mom was here as well as Nicole and Chad, so I figured it would be a good time since I had extra people helping keep him occupied. He has had a few haircuts before but nothing ever too drastic. We decided to go a little shorter this time around; however, I had no idea what the result would be... We started cutting and then decided to try Chad's trimmers, the longest attachment being 1/2 in. Martha started with the trimmers and I thought I might start crying for a minute. His curls and longer hair were all disappearing and I was sure that we had made a mistake! After all of the hair was gone I was surprisingly very pleased and I think this is a great new look for the little man!! I miss the curls but he looks so much more like a "little boy" now and he is just as handsome as ever. :) Here are some pictures of his new 'do.

Daddy cut his hair, too! Here are a couple good pictures of my boys together, taken on Father's Day.

Now he looks even more like his daddy! Now it's just a matter of deciding if we will keep this haircut or let it grow out some, it may be a good look for the summer-- nice and cool!
In pregnancy news, stuff is starting to happen, wahoo!! I've been having some minor "contractions" I believe, or at least there has been some pain and I am making progress which is nice. We will see if anything has changed at my next appointment. Or, maybe Lainee will decide to make an appearance before then, that would be great, too!

Shrieking: A new form of communication?

So, in the last couple weeks KJ has started communicating with these really loud, high pitched shrieks. I don't know where he got it from or why he has decided that it is necessary to make these sounds... but he makes them nonetheless. He usually does it if he is a little upset at something but he will also do it just for the heck of it. I let him know I'm not a fan of this new development and I think that makes him want to do it even more. It's not like he can't communicate with his words either, he has been doing that for a while and he is pretty good at it... maybe he just likes the sound. I have no idea!

Last night we took KJ to his first circus! There was a circus here in town, if you can believe that, up at the school and it was neat to go check out the animals and trapeze artists. They had lions, tigers and doves for the animal acts which was fun; however, they weren't out for very long and KJ didn't care too much for the human variety. He did very well though and sat and watched the whole thing without so much as a fit... or shriek! ;)
