I read this quote on one of my favorite mommy bloggers site this morning (project baby blog).  I wanted to share this with all the mommys who read my blog because it has really stuck with me. 

Just some food for thought today.....

First Haircut

Recently we took Nathan to get his very first haircut.  His hair was getting super long (and curly) on the top and the back but the sides were looking quite sparse.  He was starting to develop a little baby mullet. 

So, we took him to a kid-specific hair salon where each station had it's own little car or truck set up to watch Dora (seriously, what is with this show and why is my son so obsessed?).  Anyways, it was such a cute little setup that I honestly thought he was going to love it.  Ummm, boy was I really wrong.

Let me paint a picture for you....

The first 5 minutes went smoothly.  Lots of Dora watching and pointing and talking to mommy and daddy.  Lots of smiles and giggles and more Dora.  The lady snipped happily away (I know she was thinking my child was an angel).  But then................

Nathan got wind of something going on "back there" and decided to stop and take a look. Then the water works started, then the screaming commenced, and then the head shaking happened. Next thing I know he is screaming his head off and trying to escape his car.

Needless to say, the lady did the quickest haircut I've ever seen and we were left with long curly pieces mixed amongst the shorter ones.  Ummmm, "mommy no likey". 

But we all survived.  Nathan left without a permanent scar.  And, his hair looks less like a baby mullet and more like a baby layered bob.  Cute, no?

I'm Baaaacckk!!!

Anyone miss me??  I know my sister has!!!  haha!

In the last month I've managed to break our DSLR camera (it's in the process of getting fixed) and dump a mug of coffee on our MacBook laptop.  So that's put a damper on blogging this summer. No pics and no computer to blog with.

Today I'm at work (bored) and decided to use my work computer to update everyone!

This summer has been great.  Here's a recap (sorry it's bulleted)

  • I started a new job and it's going great so far.  Things are slow (hence the blogging at work) but will pick up soon.
  • We went to Newfoundland for a week and did so many amazing things that they should really be their own blog post.
  • We celebrated our 2nd year wedding anniversary
  • Our best friends from Victoria have finally settled here in Ontario...and we love seeing them every weekend.
  • We're finishing our basement.  And by "we" I really mean the hubs.  He's been slaving away down there and actually enjoying it.  He's become quite the Mr. Fix-it lately.
  • This summer has been jam packed busy with festivals, hikes, friends, and exploring.
  • Nathan had his first haircut...again more on this later.
  • Nathan has grown leaps and bounds; both physically and intelectually.  He's becoming quite the little boy.  This again will be another post.

Okay, so that's mostly what we've been up to lately.  I have to say that as much as I've enjoyed summer I am SOOOOO excited that fall is here.  It's officially become my new favorite season.

I'll leave you with some instagram pics of our little guy.
