Haircuts and Strawberries

Miles got his first ever haircut this month - in preparation for the big FIRST BIRTHDAY!  I can't believe that a year has gone by already.  My how time flies.  I'm sure I'll blink and it'll all be a sweet memory.

Until then, I shall continue to commemorate and capture moments using photographs.  We went over to Nona's house after church two Sundays ago to borrow the clippers for a trim.  Here's how it turned out:

"Nona, this is fun!"
(The clippers weren't even on  yet.  Just practice.)

It's a little hard to tell, but this is the BEFORE
with the long hair by the ears, and the long hair in the back

"What's that sound?"

"Yeah, not so sure anymore."

...

We need to straighten it up a bit
"Mom, what are you up to?"

He did so well...

He's so ticklish!  (I wasn't holding the scissors anymore)

Sweet little fuzzy shouldered boy

That day at lunch, Miles tried strawberries for the first time, so when we bought groceries, we made sure to pick up a few for him to eat at home.  These are the results:

He looks so much like James here

He likes to examine things

"Chomp, chomp, chomp!"

"Okay, that bite was quite tart."

"Overall, it was tasty!"

Miles is a super-adventurous eater.  I love that about him.  He will try anything you give him - although there's no guarantee that he'll keep it in his mouth.  He has this funny habit of scraping his tongue with his index finger, shaped like a hook, in order to get rid of anything he doesn't want.  But then sometimes, he'll pick it up, all soggy or half-chewed, and sometimes decide that it tastes better that time!  Yuck!  He is such a joy, and just the sweetest 11.6 month old I know!



On the home front, we are working steadily on the yards - both front and back.  I've taken to the backyard - it's more manageable in my mind, probably because it's quite a bit smaller, and a bit more agreeable.  I finally planted the aloe plants Jenny gave me in the garden by the house, and started watering faithfully.  James has been working on the front yard sprinklers, and trying to keep up with the raking and weeds.  With all of the rain this weekend, hopefully the grass will grow back in, and we won't have to do too much reseeding.  


We also need to finish unpacking the 3rd bedroom - we've been here for six months, and it looks almost just like it did when we moved in here!  Yeesh - but it's coming along.  It's tough to spend free time unpacking, since we're both working, and we want to spend some of the weekend relaxing or going out.  But I am committed to finish unpacking our boxes at least a day before we leave for Disneyland with Tita Ema (Friday!  Yeah!) - that, in addition to getting the cleaning and decorating done for the party!  Woot woot!  Miles Yo will be one in just two weeks!!!!
