His first haircut

His first haircut. Paul and I haven't been in a hurry to get his wispy baby hair cut. I didn't know if we ever would. :) I went in to get my hair done last week and we decided we would take Owen in too. Sitting on daddys lap and playing with a squirt bottle and comb helped the process, and of course some jelly beans. Just a little trim around the ears and a bit off the back and front. My hair dresser I've had most of my life, Tammi, was the perfect one to do it. We wouldn't even let her use the trimmers. Others may not notice a difference, it still hangs over his ears a bit, but to Paul and I it was a big step.

My sisters baby shower: Vintage bi-planes and world travel

I love this picture of my sister and I. Celebrating her and her baby boy at her shower was so special. We have been able to do so many different things together in life as sisters. I love that now we will have both been able to experience the process of having a baby. When I found out that she was pregnant it took me a while to realize that I was going to be an Aunt. I was the first one in our family to have a baby and didn't realize that I wasn't an Auntie yet! I will love being an Aunt. I will love raising kids together and love that our kids can be friends just like we are. Amy and her adorable baby bumped arrived at her shower looking gorgeous. It was a beautiful day with lots of loving friends, tiny baby clothes and meaningful conversations. Now we will wait for the day baby boy decides to arrive. I can't wait.
