First Big Boy haircut

It has been such a long time since my last post. Jason and I took "vacation" this month (I will post more about that later) so things have been a little busy around our house.

This weekend we took Jackson to get his first "Big Boy" haircut! Now, I have given Jackson some trims here and there, but nothing that I would consider a full-flegged haircut. We went to Fun Cuts, what a cool place. They have kid sized computers, a play area, and an indoor play ground. I was very impressed with that. When they called him back there, they let him watch Blues Clues on the tv by the chair that he was in.


About to start the haircut. As you can tell, Jackson is not too sure
about what that guy is doing.

Looking very pitiful! He sat pretty still considering how young he is, but this
was the face that he gave us through the whole haircut.

Finally a smile. He was very glad to be done with the haircut...and happy to have a treat.

Fun with Green Beans!

Yesterday was quite an adventure to say the least. I decided that I would let Jackson start "feeding" himself with a spoon. Now I know that he was not going to get it the first time, but I thought "What the heck, lets see what he can do". Well as you can see from the pics below, he has so much fun!

1. As you can tell, Jackson is not quite sure why I gave him his spoon. It took him a bit to be confident enough to try to use it. 2. By now, he had altogether ditched the spoon and was enjoying the squishy greenbeans between his fingers.
3. As time went on, he figured out that the spoon goes in your mouth. What he didn't understand is that food goes on the spoon and into your mouth, not all over your body.
4. Wow, what a mess! I can honestly say, I think Jackson really enjoyed himself!
5. BATH TIME! (a much needed bath I must say) Notice the greenbeans on the side of the tub! GROSS!
We will continue to practice to get this perfected! Anyone have suggestions to help me out?
