So, Ben was starting to look a little bit like a girl and his hair was getting into his eyes and his ears so I decided it was time for a haircut. Jon really didn’t want to, but agreed to do it because I wanted to. He thought we could do it by ourselves and I couldn’t find a place here that I felt comfortable taking him so we bought some clippers to make it a little bit simpler. We weren’t exactly surprised by the fact, but it’s pretty tough to cut an almost one-year-old’s hair. Anyway here are some before pictures of him in the highchair. We ended up just disrobing the little dude and rinsing him off afterwards. He’s got the Wii remote because we wanted to give him some things to distract him that he’s usually not allowed to play with.
Here is a video of the event as well. It’s not cut together very well because it was really long and I just wanted to show the interesting stuff. So, you get the beginning and the end. The beginning shows him freaking out about getting his hair sprayed with water and trying to see the clippers and being impossible. A couple minutes in, I discovered the best distraction was some cheap headphones I have. He was a little more cooperative after that, although he still kept looking at the clippers. By the end, he was pretty unaffected. I just put the last bit where he claps, because that’s his new thing. He claps for everything and gets so proud of himself.
And, here are some after-shots, one right after we rinsed him off and the rest from during his dinner and after I got him ready for bed and trying to brush my teeth. He was being pretty stinking adorable
And last, here are two really cute videos of Ben giving me kisses. Well, I’m not sure if you could call it kissing, he more tries to eat my lips and then laughs about it, but see for yourself. Oh, and it should be noted that I was taking this video and some of the pictures from above by holding my arm out, so forgive the cutting off of heads and such.
One last thing. I finished a post I had started earlier, so you might want to scroll down past the last post and check out the pictures of when Owen and Ollie came to visit.
