What NOT to do when pregnant....

...take your sweet 18mth baby boy for his first REAL haircut!! Though this was an unintentional mistake..it turned out OK.

I have loved my sweet Reed's hair and was dreading having to cut it..but was persuaded by my husband. SO, off we went to Super Cuts. I told the woman I liked his hair and just wanted it trimmed so it would be out of his eyes...and what does she do? Well look for yourself...

Note: This is how I felt at this moment as well!!

In case you couldn't see in the picture the lady used BUZZERS to cut his hair...not just a trim!!!
Needless to say I got in the car, immediately called Ryan, and started crying saying "NEVER EVER AGAIN!"

The haircut isn't so bad. He looks SO much older...but still cute. I actually had to do a little adjusting this morning because she left the bangs really long - once I started to freak out. I guess it is time for my little boy to start growing up...I just didn't want it to be so soon.

Here is the finished product:
Now you can see his face! However, don't be surprised if the long hair is back in a few months. :)

Daddy's Little Helper

Reeds favorite place to be is outside!! Since he was itty bitty he has been happiest outside, but more than being outside, he loves hanging out with Daddy outside. This weekend he spent some time outside helping Daddy change the oil in my car! He was so cute!! I can tell he wants to be just like his Daddy - which bring much joy to my heart!!

Not only does Reed want to be like Daddy outside, he loves to do what Daddy does inside too:

Later on Saturday Uncle Michael came over for dinner. This proved to be an eventful evening...not only because of the 2 dogs we had running around but..well..
a picture is worth 1,000 words, so here are 3,000 that speak for themselves...

Just in case you were wondering, we were not the ones to take the diaper off...Reed did that all by himself! HA! Then he continued to escape outside to see the doggies...It was an eventful, but memorable, night!

It's A..................


We are so excited that Reed is going to have a little brother to play with!! As soon as I can figure out how to scan the pictures I will!! We were able to see some great profile shots, and even some cute shots of his hands ( all 5 fingers on both) and feet! He measured a little bit bigger than we thought, so the new due date is around March 30th. Who knows when he will actually grace us with his presence. Now we get to start the name game....any suggestions....please!!
