First Haircut

Jack's hair had become rather large. He was forming dreadlocks in the back so we decided it was time for the first haircut. I was very nervous because Jack doesn't sit still much. We went to a children's hair salon in madison park (not joking). I knew they would know how to deal with kids and all went well. They put Jack in a cute little car with lots of toys. We gave him his pacifier and he just chilled out. The whole thing took about 10 minutes and he left with a snazzy little do.


If I need a little time to do something, the best place for Jack is our kitchen and laundry room. He doesn't need any toys. If the washing machine is going, he watches it like a TV. If the dishwasher is open, he tries to unload it (usually knives first) and uses it as a jungle gym. I know I will figure out the dishwasher thing is a bad idea when it collapses with him on it.

Jack and Lily

Bridget has been on vacation for the last two weeks so Lily's mom and I cobbled together some childcare. My neighbor's bbsitter, my aunt, and Lily's mom Sarah watched Jack. I took Lily for two afternoons. Jack had not seen lily for a week when she came over but they were so happy to see each other. I had not realized how much the two have become pals. It's *almost* easier to watch the two of them together because they play together. They make each other laugh... they will even feed each other which is hilarious and very sweet. After watching them I realized Lily is Jack's first friend. It's extremely cute.
