Andrew's first haircut!... AND MORE

Andrew's precious locks of platinum blond were trimmed and clipped on April 14th (THANKS ANGELA!) contrary to what daddy wanted. I just got a little tired of the uneven hairline on the back of his head and the hair hanging over his ears. Andrew was unsure about what was going on at first, but once the clippers started going he started to smile, wiggle, and giggle a little. I guess it tickled his head. He was happy the whole way through, which was great considering it was after his bedtime and he was very tired. I was a little sad after the hair started coming off.... his little baby-do would be gone forever. Although it was a little shorter than I imagined, it turned out great. At least I thought so, and all the grandmas, grandpas, aunts, and uncles. Daddy was a bit upset - to say the least. He talks to me now, though, and still loves Andrew!!

April 14th was quite an eventful day. Right before I took Andrew to get his hair cut, he started walking at my moms house. My mom, Jared, Alisa, Eric, and I were all cheering him on pretty loudly. He liked the attention, so he kept walking back and forth from one person to the next. He started out walking about 4 feet-ish.... now he just walks whenever he feels like it. He takes a small fall every now and again, but he is getting pretty confident and his balance improves everyday!!!!!!! He is learning how to stand up in the middle of the floor when he doesn't have anything to hold on to. I will post a video of him walking soon. He is also really good at going down the stairs by himself now, so we don't have to worry about him falling down the stairs when no one is watching at grandmas house. Hopefully it won't happen anyway! (knock on wood) We are so proud of him! He is growing up so fast!
