My Brave Little Man

Well today was Saturday, Valentine's Day... And I had every intention of waking up and getting things done. Mostly, I desired that I could finally get my house cleaned (if you have seen my house since we've moved in, it has been, uhmm, a disaster!!) Sitting here tonight, it's hard to believe I didn't get more done. This past month and a half has flown by, and every minute I have, I have wanted to spend it with my little family. My home in return has suffered, and I was determined to work on it!

When we woke up this morning, Mark had mentioned that he needed to go get his hair cut. Poor Grant, until today, had only gotten a little cut here and there by me. The back of his hair was starting to snarl really easily at night (as you can see in the very 1st picture). Though I loved the curls that he was getting, I decided Grant needed to FINALLY go in. There was a little wait and then it was his turn. It didn't phase him for a few minutes, and then the tears slowly worked up. He cried, and wanted me to hold him. It broke my heart!! I was sad to watch the little hair he had worked SO hard to grow be cut off! After the cut, he was awarded a lolli-pop, which he loved.

I watched him today, and was so amazed at how big he is getting. Mark's mom baby-sits him during the day, along with three other three year olds. Since he has been going to her, he has changed completely. He is such a little boy, and is even acting older than he is!! This hair cut makes the transition complete... My baby is no baby anymore!! But I would have to say that he is a lot funner now!! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful spirit!!!

Oh, and, yes, I got my house clean finally!!

I love the haircut! He is such a handsome little man! That must be Mark's barber. He recommended him to me for Mason while we were in town. Wish we could have had time to go see him!
