I made a huge deal out of Talmage's first haircut. He was basically bald until he was 2, but he did have a mad set of wings behind both ears. James kept urging me to cut them, and I kept putting it off, somehow scared that it would transform him overnight (or over-haircut) from babyhood to toddlerdom. At nearly 18 months old when I finally cut those awful wings, I was surprised that the moment came and passed with no real incident--except that he all of the sudden looked 100 times cuter because he didn't have a bald head and long wings. I vowed that with my next kid, I wouldn't make such a big deal and stress myself out over the darn first haircut. If the kid looked like he needed a trim, I'd give him a trim. And although I would never cut Evie's awesome duck-fuzz, I did cut back those crazy wings behind both ears. And he looks adorable!
What a little poser. He looks so happy in this picture, right? He saw the camera and beamed. This is what the ordeal was really like:
This picture makes me happy for many reasons. 1) He's wearing shorts and a t-shirt in February. Please don't ever make me leave California. 2) He's laying on my dad's baby blanket that my grandma (Noni) gave to me for Christmas before T was born. 3) Duh...he's precious!

Grandma is in town from Chicago to help take care of baby Lacey so she stopped by for a hug and a hello. She also brought T a new book called "Noisy Zoo" which he hasn't stopped playing with/reading since.

After retiring from tag, these 3 BFF's played in the yellow jeep for a while. They were more than content to just sit in the jeep together without moving an inch, although on my recommendation T started pushing the jeep and I both regreted the decision and feared for Frankie's life almost immediately! Talmage talks about these friends all day long and if he so much as hears their voice in the courtyard he starts running out the back door. I don't know what we're ever going to do without them.

I was REALLY excited for the dance, and T couldn't stop talking about it. We have dance parties in our living room just about everyday, and we were both looking forward to dancing the night (read: after naptime/early evening) away!
At least he looked good in a suit. It was his one redeeming quality of the evening!
