He's a big boy now!

It was haircut time at our house last week for the guys.
 
The boys convinced me that baby Stephen needed one, too, and considering the heat spell we've been having, I figured he might be more comfortable with less of a mop top.
 
 

 
Solomon gladly stood in as a human barber chair. Stephen never so much as flinched. I thought I had the #3 clip guard on, but later sadly realized it was the #2 (1/4 inch - yikes!). 


 
Here he is, cute as a button - but oh, I miss that baby hair!!!
 
They always grow up too fast, don't they? It's hard to believe Stephen will be 1 in just a week and a half. Seems like just yesterday when he was born.

  1. Sweet little guy! I can't believe that he is coming up to his first birthday - how did that happen?!??

    P.S This evening, after dinner, we'll be enjoying some vanilla pudding - it smells so good! :)

  3. My mom did that to my brothers one summer: they all ended up with sunburnt scalps - ouch! Do you cut your husband's hair too? Hopefully it's a compliment to say it doesn't look like it, but I thought I'd ask.

  4. Wouldn't your girls be cooler with less hair, too? Does God really want little girls to be hot?

    1. I just ***knew*** some wise person would leave this comment. In fact, I even knew it would be anonymous. Thank you for proving my point.

      Two things:

      (1) Long hair can be put up to take it off the neck and make it cool. I suppose I could also clip my girls hair short, or grow my boys hair out, but why would I want them to look gender-confused?

      (2) Let's suppose God expects girls to put up with more heat than men - what would be wrong with that? It's not like anyone is baking. He also expects us to bear children, which is a very unpleasant and painful experience. He also expects men to go to work by the sweat of their face all the days of their life. It's called: DIFFERENCE.

  5. As a P.S. to your 'wise person', it was (and is) awfully hot in the Middle East, and yet women have managed to keep their feminity for quite some time!

    God bless you, Dad, and the seven! Stay cool!

  6. Okay, onto a normal comment.

    He looks so cute! I love buzz cuts. I gave Joel one a few months ago. I never miss the baby hair though. Adorable!!!

  7. I am not anonymous, but in the old testament, which is seems you and your husband subscribe to, men had long hair, as did women. So why do you cut your boys hair off but not your girls?

  8. Having had hair of every length in the last 40 years, I can say that it is much easier to have long hair and put it up than it is to have hair that is shorter that you can't get off the back of your neck. I usually get my hair cut shorter in the winter and let it grow more in the summer just so I can put it in a ponytail.

  9. I really should add that he is just such a cute little pumpkin, I want to cover his chubby little cheeks with kisses! I cannot believe it's almost been a year and I'm sure you and your husband can't either!

    God bless you, Dad, and the seven,
