Bye Bye Crib :(

We are at a point in our lives that we have not been since we had George. We have had a crib and at times have had two cribs setup in our "nursery" for almost 11 years. Typically when our baby turns 2 or not too long after they move into a big bed out of necessity as a new baby needs the crib. When Pete and Re-Pete moved it was to a full-size mattress on the floor. And then we got bunk beds with a full-size on bottom. When Tank moved it was to a twin size bed that my Grandpa had made for George. When Missy Blue moved we were fortunate to receive a new bed for free!

And now, Seppy is 2 1/2 and this is the first time we have not needed the crib at this moment. We tossed around keeping him in a crib but when a friend had a toddler bed she no longer needed we decided it was time to move him. And oh how Seppy loves "my new bed!" He still shares a room with Missy as she does not want to be alone. I think they both would like to move in with their big brothers but there isn't enough room for 6 in that room. And so, it was with a few sentimental tears that I took down the crib (or as Sep says -- Mommy broke it) and packed it away. (For only the time being I hope.)

New HairDo for Missy

I took Missy Blue to have her hair cut yesterday. She was THRILLED to say the least! The entire time she sat in the chair her face was beaming I had a hard time not laughing. The cut is a little longer than her shortest pieces so they layered it at the bottom to blend it in. When I asked if she liked it she said, "I've been waiting for this a LONG time!" Indeed, she has been asking for short hair for quite awhile. She looks adorable as I knew she would but I think it will take Daddy a bit to get used to his girl without long hair. He kept asking her last night who she was because he didn't recognize her. :)-

Missy Cuts Her Hair :(

I was in the bathroom when I noticed a chunk of blonde hair in the garbage can. This was not just a little bit of hair but long strands.

Strange seeing as I had seen Missy playing with her dolls and didn't notice. I ran to check her out and it wasn't obvious at first being that her hair was in pigtails. But then realized that she had cut portions of each. Thankfully she could not cut all the way through her pigtail or I believe she would have. I was crying and laughing as I asked her why she cut her hair. "It was sticking up!"  I told her,  "Maybe next time you should ask Mommy to comb it instead!"

In brushing it out I think it might not have to be as short and maybe it can be layered. But not entirely sure being that on one side the length is pretty far gone. Hopefully we can keep it to her shoulders at least. When I called John, he was NOT happy! Daddy likes long hair and especially Missy's beautiful blonde locks. Oh my! I know other children do this and Tank did at this age but for a boy it isn't as big of a deal. I'll post new pictures after we decide what to do with her hair. I must say that I am VERY thankful that all she cut was in the length as it could have been much worse!

Wordless Wednesday -- Portraits

(Okay a few words of description) -- A friend asked if I would be willing to take their family pictures. They have been married 5 years and have 3 children now and so she thought it would be fun to have pictures taken where they got married -- at the home of her parents. I jumped at the chance to get more experience taking pictures of others. My kids are easy as they've had a camera in their face from the beginning. I had so much fun! I ended up taking over 1000 pictures so it was hard to narrow it down but here are a few of my favorites.
