People, let’s be real. I am not a baby person. I have been overly honest about this and the baby stage is rough for me.  And when people tell me to enjoy every moment while I am holding a flailing little boy who smells like poop I sometimes mostly want to punch them. True story.  But something about this little boy being the last little baby to come from us is making me all teary eyed as he passes milestones.  I feel myself gushing about the baby-ness that is slowing slipping away. I know…me?!! So can you humor me by thinking these photos are as adorable as I do (or at least pretend :)?

Our baby boy had his first haircut this past weekend in Iowa with the lovely Crystal.  Abishai is our first little baby who was not completely bald until the age of 2 so this was a mama first for me too.  Seriously, I had to tape bows to the girl’s bald shiny heads! Because I just loved his little sweet baby hair I resisted for many months succumbing to the mounting pressure from namely my husband and other concerned family members who mentioned he might have hair long enough to braid soon. His first haircut also meant his first lolipop experience which; while being a questionable parental decision, made for a tear free haircut. And have I mentioned Crystal is awesome!!!

Go little man!! But please stop growing so fast,
