First haircut!

Noah finally got his first haircut! I'd been trying to figure out a way to cut his hair without accidentally stabbing him and finally figured out that I could use the clippers like I did on Braden. I was afraid it would be too short, but I don't think it's too bad.

Before After

I found Braden and Noah laying on the little couch together, and I had to take a picture. Noah doesn't usually like being "confined" like that, so it will probably never happen again.

Braden is sucking his lip because Noah is. It's something Noah started a couple of weeks ago, but now he usually only does it when he's sleeping.

This is a view of a sunset from our front yard. By the time I got the picture the colors were starting to fade. We get lots of incredible sunsets here.

And lastly, I'm 34 weeks! Only 6 (or so) more to go! Time to get crackin' on getting ready for baby.

Just more stuff

Well, I've been meaning to do another post for a while now, but I've been putting it off since this is what I have to work with (thanks, Noah):

So there probably won't be much actual text in this blog.

Braden got a new haircut a week or so ago. I'd been meaning to do it for a few weeks, and my grandpa kept refering to Braden as my daughter, so it was well past time.

Before and After

This is a big deal for us, since both Braden and I like it long (though not as long as it is in the picture). Seriously, who wouldn't want to keep those gorgeous loose curls? Kevin decided he wanted to do it with the clippers, and convinced Braden and I to let him. I thought I was going to cry, but I held back the tears. Braden hated it at first and said he wanted his hair back. Now he's okay either way. I like it because you can see his face better, but I still miss the long hair. He'll probably grow it out again, as much because it takes us forever to get around to cutting it. Maybe we'll do short for summer and long the rest of the year.

Kevin's sister has been in town for the summer with her family and I finally got around to taking pictures of all the kids. These are all of Kevin's parents' grandkids, or at least until October.

From left, Carter, Katelyn, Braden, Dylan, and Noah.

The kids were watching a movie and I caught Braden and Dylan like this.

This is also during the movie. I thought they looked cute smooshed together on Braden's tiny couch.

And in baby news, I only have 10 weeks to go! Yay! I'm almost done! Now if only I could figure out a name.
