First Haircut

 A few weeks ago we decided that Caleb's hair had gone from cute and shaggy to...desperately needing a trim. It didn't help that he got called a girl while wearing all blue.
After searching high and low in Birmingham for a kid-oriented hair salon for Caleb's first haircut, we pretty much struck out. So we ended up on our back patio instead. But of course, before we could do anything, Caleb had to play in the leaves!
After about 30 min of playing, Mom decided it was time to get to cutting. Caleb wasn't exactly thrilled to have his play time interrupted.
Somehow we got him to calm down enough to sit still for a few minutes...
And what do you know - Mom didn't do half bad!
Caleb felt so good about his new do that he decided to show it off at a party that afternoon.
Turns out Caleb did great for his first haircut and Mom did ok too!  :-)

A few thoughts here. 1. Only in the south can you wet your baby's head and cut it outside in January. 2. Caleb looks so cute! 3. Check out my blog to see what I did to Ella. You did much better. :)

Hi Rachel! Forgive me for contacting you through your comments section here, but I couldn't find an email address for you on your blog. First off, congratulations on the new baby! I saw the post with the ultrasound pictures--he's already adorable! :D Second: I was wondering if I could have permission post the review you put on Amazon for our book, "That's Where God Is" on my website. I'm trying to put together collections of reviews for a "What Readers Are Saying" feature. If you'd be alright with that, please shoot me an email at alison @, and also let me know how you'd like to be credited (R. Webb, as on the Amazon review, or something else.) If you would prefer NOT to have the review on our site, that is TOTALLY okay. :) Thanks in advance; hope to hear from you soon!
