Emmett’s First Buzz Cut

May 26, 2010 2 comments

Emmett’s hair is (correction — was) out of control.  He definitely inherited his full head of hair from both me and James (mainly James), and we recently realized keeping it at the length we like would involve very frequent trips to Snip-its.

Emmett's Hair at Our Preferred Length

Lately, since it’s been getting hotter, I’ve started feeling sorry for him and the sweaty mop on top of his head.  So this evening I took matters into my own hands, grabbed James’ beard trimmer and started buzzing.  It didn’t bother him as much as I thought it might, and the result was about a pound of hair on the bathroom floor and a much lighter/more naked toddler head.  He definitely looks like he’s a lot cooler now, too.  Introducing the new, buzz cut Emmett …

Emmett’s Mother’s Day Message

I can’t believe it’s already my second Mother’s Day!  James has been working all day, so it’s just been me and my little man.  He wanted to record a Mother’s Day message for his grandmothers and great grandmothers, and here was the best result…

Happy Mother’s Day to all my fellow mothers out there!

Puzzle Piece Cymbals

Did you know wooden puzzle pieces make fabulous cymbals?  I didn’t — until recently…

I’m assuming this means Emmett is musically inclined.  I could also assume that he’s an out-of-box thinker.  Or it’s just that he’s a boy, and boys will be boys.
