The Slide!

Liam loves to go to the park and he can go down the big twisty slide by himself! Well, he goes down backwards. LOL

Today, he went down his favorite slide and afterwards he told me it was "hot." It was kinda hot from the sun but it's plastic, not metal so it won't burn him. Besides, he's wearing sweatpants, so no worries!

I agreed with him and told him he was right, the slide was hot.

He then proceeded to blow on the slide - just the way I blow on his food when it's hot. Funny kid! I guess that's one way to solve the problem.

Baby's 1st Hair Cut

Liams hair was getting pretty long and I knew I was going to have to cut it sooner or later. It was time.  :(

But he has the most beautiful curls in the back and I still can't bare the thought of those being cut off! So, I decided to just give his bangs a little trim.  That still counts as a first hair cut, right? ;)

I decided the best place to cut them would be in our kitchen sink. That's where he takes most of his baths so I knew he would be comfortable. I gathered my supplies (fine tooth comb and hair cutting scissors - these are sharp scissors that aren't allowed to cut anything but hair) and filled up the sink.

Liam was at my feet yelling, "BATH BATH" Well, it was more like "BAAA BAAA" but I knew what he was saying. ;)

I washed his hair then combed it out. Paul was right there with the camera to document the milestone. Liam didn't really seem to mind either.

I barely cut anything off - but oh boy does Liam look different! I'm glad I only attempted to cut the front.  Those curls are definitely going to be staying awhile.
