The little man hair cut

The before pictures were hard to get until I put in a sucker and Pete's Dragon.

When wet these are- no, scratch that- were- beautiful curls.
I did not cry when they were cut off though-
I busied myself emptying out the dishwasher.

during- no turning back now-
he didn't seem to care what was going on
(a man thing huh?)

I love that we have a live in barber!


and of course Cami also got special hair fuzzing and a treat
though not a hair on her head was taken (again)
She believes she is even more lovely though!

yep, she thought I was taking too many of Spencer too.

But really and truly I can't stop looking at my man child and
can't get over how handsome he is!

Three weeks old

I am not the only one, I am sure, that feels like her children are growing up sooo fast
and mine are only still babies!
He is changing so fast that I feel like I shouldn't let a day pass without documenting it on film.
or rather digitally I guess.
I also needed him to try on and model the hats I need to get in the mail.
He looked especially cute in a frily purple one with a big flower, but
I figure that's not nice to take pictures of handsome little men modeling girly things.

Happy Birthday Grampa Hatch!

Even though they are far away Cami was not going to let a birthday pass without making a cake and singing.
Every 25th of Feb deserves singing because of my daddy!

bees are buzzing and the popcorn is popping

Rural living has bee season when the almond growers put out the hives to pollinate the "popcorn".
The kids love to point out all the flowers as we drive around
and it took a little convincing for Camilla to believe that the bees weren't hurting the trees.
The windshield gets a little dirty as we drive past orchards of nectarines, pomegranates and prunes.

bath time

Bath time

I decided that it was not a good idea to wait six months for my mother to come home to give Nathan his first bath.
Having my parents away- serving in Ukraine- I must admit, is helping me grow up a bit more. (I have to bathe my own babies)
There is no one in the world who bathes new babies like my mother.
It is an ethereal experience for me as an onlooker.
I apologized to Nate most of the way through that his experience was only sub par
and almost teared up- so silly of me.
In the end, we both had a good time and his soft fuzzy hair smelled wonderful!
He especially enjoyed his daddy massage.
So, he got his first home bath at 2 weeks instead of six months.
