This whole "baby girl hair" thing is new to me, and it is a little trickier than boy hair. When the boys started to look shaggy and it was time for their first haircut, Kelly just cut it with the clippers. EASY!!!
Well, Nattle's was starting to look a little MOLLET "ISH" and I knew we needed to do something about it.
So, we did!
For $7, we had a nice lady at a salon, trim off the "party in the back" part, and it looks great.
Natalie was sitting on my lap facing me for the endeavor and I think she was a little confused by the whole thing, but she did fine. And now there is no mollet.
The first graders had a day to dress up like one of the characters in their favorite books. The first character Hunter wanted to dress up like was Calvin, from Calvin and Hobbes. But we decided that no one would know that he was dressed like anyone but himself. The next thought was someone from the Hobbit, but he would need a mask or some weapon (which neither are allowed), so we settled for Obi-wan, from one of his star wars books.
Look at the beard on this guy. Really it is just a preview of what he will look like in about 8 years!!!
The next face that we love is this metallic color with blue and white bands stuck on them.
You may have guessed, Hunter has braces! They are just phase 1 of a 2 phase treatment plan to correct his cross bite/under bite.
I have to say, he is pretty cute with them, and they don't look to wacky on them. Besides that, he thinks they are great. (except for all the sticky and hard foods that he can't eat).
I am a stay at home mom with two boys, Hunter and Chance. They are the lights of my life and the craziness in my days. Kelly and I have been married since June 2002. He has helped my life to be an adventure! We love to spend time with our little guys, and with eachother. (When we get a chance!)
Hunter comes into my bedroom one morning and says, "Hey Mom, do you think you might take a moment on Saturday and clean our toilet? You see, there is some dried pee on the rim."
Chance says, "Hey Mom, nice bum!! (He got it from Diary of a Wimpy Kid)
I love how Chance calls Earthquakes "Earthshakes" and Eyelashes "Eyeflashes"!
Hunter says to Kelly's co-worker, "My Dad is smarter than you!"
Hunter says, "Mom, you are a really good Mom, and we really love you. You are a little chubby though!"
Sunday morning we are on our way out the door to church and Hunter says, "Mom, you look like a REAL girl today in that pink dress."
We have a book we love called, NO DAVID!. Chance loves this book and we read it often. One day we were out for ice cream and this little girl we had with us picked up Chance's ice cream cone to read the wrapper. All of the sudden he pipes up and yell, "NO DAVID, NO!!!" It was sooo funny!
Hunter says as we are watching a commercial for "The Space Bag"....."Hey, I need that for my shirt drawer!" (He somehow acquired way too many shirts.)
Calls Corn Chex "Crunchy Crunchy"
"I want Crunchy Crunchy for brefest"
"Dad, that really hates me off!"
"Bobble" (bottle) "Ma Man" (Batman) "Arrow" (Green Arrow) "Cyu guy" (cute guy, in reference to himself) "Dip dip" (referencing Chance's favorite food group....ketchup, ranch, etc.)
"Mom, I am so tired of you! I am tired of you getting mad when I am naughty!"
Hunter (telling me a story)-
"And then there was a snow leopard named Crotch Roast...."
I couldn't stop laughing!!
"Mom, you must eat a lot of squash because your legs are REALLY big!"
(Due to a previous conversation that if he eats his squash, he will grow big.)
Ball, Baby, Tank ooo, Pease, uh-oh, Dada, Untey (Hunter),
He is picking up new words all the time- it is so fun!
"Mom come look! I peed in the toilet AND the bathtub!"
"Dad, you're a fat guy and you're NO fun!"
"Mom, the moon is like the earth...only smaller."
"Chancey is like....this dinner is gross!"
"Chancey is like....where are we going?"
Hunter - 5 Years Old
Hunter is LOVING preschool this year! He loves to learn and do new things. He is a great big brother and a wonderfully sweet boy to have in our family.
Chance -3 Years Old
Chance is full of fun and fire! He loves to play with his toy superheroes, dress up as a superhero, and pretend everyone is a superhero or bad guy. He is a fun addition to our family, and always has a silly story to share.
