Milestones....

The past few weeks have been weeks of change in Paul's young life. He has reached several milestones all at once it seems. Through the end of Oct. he cut through his first 2 teeth. They are in the middle on the bottom, and they are REALLY SHARP! :) I would like to get a picture of them soon, but it is hard to get him with an open mouth, without his tounge in the way!
Then last week he completely weaned. This was harder on me than Paul. He seems very happy with a bottle and real food. It seems hard to believe that my little baby is growing so fast! It is a good thing though, we wanted my body to have a few months without feeding Paul before the baby is born.
The third big thing was also last week at my folk's house. Paul had his first real haircut! I had trimmed around his ears before, but the whole head needed to be done as he was starting to curl in the back! Knowing that 10 month old little boys do not sit still very well, we enlisted the help of my family. And it took just about all of us!
I started out with the clippers, Mom held Paul, Scott took pictures, and about 3-4 sibilings took turns feeding him different foods to keep him happy.
Here is a "play-by-play" of the whole process!
Before the cut- totally oblivious :)
"I am ready! What is taking so long?"
"Ummm, I don't like this any more!"
"Mom- what are you doing to my head???"
"Boy am I glad that is over! Look at all the hair on the floor!"
