A High Chair and a Haircut

This was a big weekend for James. :) We FINALLY went out and purchased a high chair. You know, he's only been eating solids for 7 months now...we figured it was about time. Ha ha. I think the thing that really made us decide to buy one for ourselves was the convenience of having one to use when we were in Colorado. It was so nice to be able to put him in the chair with a cracker or cheerios and have him stay content for a while. Plus, feeding him in his Bumbo chair was starting to become downright dangerous! If we turned away for two seconds, James would try and climb right out!

Also, we decided to get rid of James' Old Man Hair this weekend. I've been hesitant to cut it because it didn't seem like his hair was thick enough. I thought if I cut it it would be sparse and patchy, and that would be even worse than Old Man Hair. Well, it's been getting thicker in the last couple months. I still didn't know if it would work, but I figured a bad haircut at this age wouldn't even phase James, and it would grow back soon enough.

It was my first time using the clippers, but I think it turned out pretty good! James was fascinated by them, and as a result he was much less squirmy than normal. Paul held him while I manned the clippers. Overall, I'm pleased with his first haircut. It's hard to see the difference in pictures, but here are a couple pictures we took when he first put him in his new high chair:

James just wants to look like his uncle Jonathan so he decided not to let his hair grow...

How cute!! I definitely noticed the haircut. It makes him look older! He looks very handsome. I bet he loves having his own high chair! We miss you guys.
