I normally like to wait until the first birthday before I cut my kids hair because they always look so much older after their hair is cut. I know I am crazy but that is just what I think. So anyway, 3 weeks before James 1st birthday I was showing Brett that I could put James hair into pigtails, Brett decided it was time for me to cut James hair. I agreed so here are the before at after pics.


He has definately lost his baby looks but he is still as cute as ever.

Another first for our family is Markie has started preschool. He has preschool for an hour a day, Brett takes him and I pick him up. Frankly it is a good thing that I didn't take him, I teared up just as I was driving away after I picked him up after he came out of the classroom. I am hoping preschool will prepare me for when Mark goes to kindergarten, however I think I still might be an emotional wreck.

Brett taking Markie to school the first day, Markie was so excited to be going with daddy.


  1. That is fun and exciting!! I bet Mark will just love preschool! I remember Drew's first day of kindergarten: I got out of the car and Drew just ran to me. I about cried when he was running to me, but I had to be strong. :) Then he said "I forgot all about you guys!!" Then they just get used to it I guess.... :)

  2. Awww...you have such cute boys! :D

    I don't think any mother can stop the separation anxiety when they send their littles into the world...

  3. James haircut really did make him look grown up. I love Mark's smile in the picture with his daddy. Both your boys are cute.

  4. Yes, Mom's usually are emotional wrecks in these situations. I love that you got pictures that first day of school. I have them for all my kids every year. They hated it but I'm glad I went ahead and got photos anyway.

  5. James looks more like Mark with his hair cut. Way to go Mark. Have fun in preschool!

  6. Okay, so I haven't looked at your blog in FOREVER!...and I think I may know why. Reading it makes me miss you A LOT!

    I'm glad to see Mark and James are doing well. Don't let them forget who their favorite aunt is, okay?

    You are a great mom! I hope I can be as good as you!

  7. Very Very cute. I like James' haircut. Makes him look like Grandpa Haroldsen.
