No Longer a Baby

Jaxon had his first haircut last Tuesday

His dad wanted it to be a special event, and in an old-timey barber shop if possible.

Not being one who frequents barber shops, ( and David shaves his head ), I did a little sleuthing online and came up with one that came closest to what he/we had in mind.

We invited the family to come along with us, and Grandad and Cindy were able to make it.


There were the traditional 3 or 4 chairs with mirrors lining the wall

With Grandad settled in comfortably, we waited our turn

Here's how long the child's hair was, before.

When everyone was ready, David lifted Jaxon up on one of their affix-a-booster-seat thingies, and the little boy was wrapped up in a clothing protector ( for want of a better word/description ). That's when he started having an inkling that SOMETHING was up.

I mean, I HAD told him we were going to go get his hair cut, but I don't think he could quite grasp what that meant yet :)

He did NOT like this strange new experience very much, especially when a stranger was doing strange things to his head, and it got even wilder when the BUZZING started. Aunt Cindy held his head firmly so that there would not be any accidental nicks. ( Mummy had been delegated to photo-taking duties )

All in all, he wasn't any worse for the wear. In fact, he looked so grown up after his hair cut that his daddy and I felt a little twinge in our hearts that our little boy was growing up oh so very quickly.

The barber offered him a lollipop, but our dear boy had no idea what to do with it, since we hadn't ever given him one before, and only ended up with very sticky hands :)

On Top of the World

Sometimes,

when there really isn't anything happening around town,

we just drive around and explore with Grandad.

Sometimes we come across places that even HE has not been :)

Flat Stanley

We received a surprise in the mail

a few weeks back, from my nephew, Aidan. His class was doing a Flat Stanley project and we were more than happy to show Stanley around.

Trunk or Treat

Jaxon did not get to eat


any of the candy he received, but I don't think he really minded.


Photobucket


Or knew any better :)

Next year might be totally different, but this Halloween, our little Superman was quite content to be part of all the hullabaloo and getting to run around.


Photobucket


We went around the parking lot at Church, where the Trunk or Treat festivities were held,


Photobucket


and then we went into the Multi Purpose Hall for more carnival activities.

I think Jaxon took some time out to talk to The Invisible Man, who was apparently feeling a little neglected and overlooked. :P


Photobucket


We haven't gone into the loot yet, though. I think neither David nor I are very interested, and Jaxon is oblivious to the existence of candy for now. ( Phew! )
