Happenings...

There is always something Happening when you have children.  This is what has been Happening at our house.One down

Jex lost his first tooth... we are on to those awkward phases that come with being kids and adolescents. Missing teeth, and then before you know it... Zits, Braces, and their own personal style. 

He still looks adorable.  It took about a week before he would trust me to pull it out.  I guess he figured it wasn't going to come on it's own.  I was able to get it out in one gentle tug.  He enjoyed having the tooth fairy come.  Big changes, BIG BIG Changes. He is growing up.

Now this next one might get me hurt. 

Disclaimer:Grandparents & aunts... she wanted to do this!! This was Not her crazy mothers idea. 

Stella has been asking me since I cut my hair off if we could cut hers.  It has been a long time coming, and I finally gave in.  She was so excited.  I think she looks adorable, and I feel it was a great change.  A much needed change.

Here is the Before and After:Before

After Everyone has been pleased with the results.  Stella is in heaven.  Her classmates went crazy this morning.  Jonathan was a little hesitant about it, but once he saw how cute she looked he couldn't resist.  Our only sour note was Jex.  He was not happy, and even cried some.  He doesn't deal well with change.  I hope he can learn to love her anyway.  I told him,

"Girls sometimes need

a change, and that is

something you are

going to have to

learn to live with.

It would be better if

you learned it now."

As for me...

I am thankful for the

 Happenings.

I love her hair. It looks so cute!

The haircut is DARLING! And she wears it very well. What fun Christmas times! I love the apron. Sewing is so rewarding. I've been wanting to make myself an apron but I've been to lazy/busy to pull out my sewing machine. Maybe you've inspired me.

That sounds just like Jex to cry when Stellas gets her haircut. I am sad that her long hair is gone, but is looks pretty dang cute! She is looking more grown-up. Tell Jex congrats on the tooth!

Oh My WORD! I certainly didn't expect that, but it looks so cute! I cut some bangs the other day and Ivie immediately wanted some. I talked her into waiting for a bit. Are you still going to use the flower clips? How does JB like it? Stella is so cute she'd be beautiful bald! The hair is just an accessory.

SEBishop said...

Stella's hair is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! And I think it darling that Jex cried! It's a good thing you let him in on womanly secrets . . . we need constant change (clothes, accessories, hair color, cuts, etc) all the time!
