27 Jul -- Charlie's *Gulp* Haircut

So I took the kids to church this morning and during the service I looked down at Charlie's hair and it looks absolutely awful and shaggy. No problem, I said to myself, I'll give him a haircut this afternoon. I've only cut his hair without Dan's help one other time. It wasn't too awful, but I'd just used scissors. This time I decided to try out the clippers...hrmmm. I plopped him in front of the movie Cars and threatened to turn it off when he looked at me and the clippers dubiously. Turns out, he was right to doubt my skill level. Here are some pictures from the aftermath. He kept running away from me as I was trying to take the pictures, obviously horrified that I would want to document such a thing. I will try to get better ones tomorrow when he's forgiven me for my actions. I didn't touch the front of his hair too much in the hopes that Dan can repair my mess when he returns next weekend.

On a side note, we were sitting in church and Charlie was doing amazingly well. We got to the last hymn and all of the sudden he just starts belting out gibberish singing like "Rejoice, the Lord is King" was his favorite hymn of all time. He was fabulous with the whispering, but we need to work on the sitting still. The boy must have had ants in his pants the whole time!

Uh, what are you doing, Mama?

Don't look at me!! (And yes, that's a line on his head and no it's not intentional)

You can run, but you can't hide!

Seriously, Mama, put the clippers down and walk away very slowly...

20 Jul -- Tummy time, Corn, and S'mores

At 3 months, Jane weighs in at 15 lbs, 15 oz (with a onesie and a clean diaper on). She is gearing up to compete with Charlie for the biggest baby on the block bonanza.
Charlie goes to daycare three mornings a week and learned marvelous tricks such as blowing bubbles in his milk and putting cars in his pockets.
Anna survived another Korean-borne virus with Dan ensuring family survival with spaghettios and hot dogs; kiddie-city for all my kids.
Did I do that? This is Anna's outfit from when she was a baby.

Like a bowl full of jelly.
Charlie perfecting his "blue steel."
Charlie checking her airway.

"Hello there."

"I'm singin' in the rain..."
Tummy time.
Do you know any other two year old eating corn on the cob one handed?
"Mmmm mommy, this is good..."
"Do I have any corn in my 10 teeth?"

Charlie questioning the sanity of this "s'mores" thing.
He is not questioning it anymore.
Who loves Mommy?
Good times.
Where some people see a nice new haircut, Charlie sees a new highway.

6 Jul -- 4th of July Weekend

We've had a great holiday weekend so far. We went to see Wall E on Friday afternoon. It was Charlie's (and Jane's!) first trip to the theater and he did awesome! He sat and watched the whole thing from beginning to end. It was a lot of fun to watch him so enthralled with the movie. Then we went to the base festivities and saw "Daddy's plane". As it turns out, it really was Dan's plane, with his name on it. Dan also got to ride on a segway (a lifelong dream, if you didn't know).

Charlie was mesmorized before the movie even started
