My wittle chub-muffin is growing up… Sadly, my youngest has left his baby days for good with the snip, snip, snip of his sweet curls. Yes, Cutie Pie got his first haircut today.

Carmine is our favorite barber at the Causeway Barber Shop. Cutie Pie sits in stunned silence.

His reward from Carmine for not wigging out:

Cutie Pie looks like a little man now 😦 It’s bittersweet for me. I’m not sure I’m ready for toddlerdom again…

After Wildman and Cutie Pie woke up from their naps I decided to pile them into the family truckster and take them to the beach.

All in all, it’s been a great day.


7 Days

I joined the 7 Days photo challenge group on Flickr. I object is to take a self-portrait everyday for a week. This round starts today and runs through March 14th.
