Julia's first haircut

Good afternoon!  So I was just finishing up giving Julia a bath, getting her dressed and combing her hair and I came to the decision that the bangs NEEDED to be cut!  Trying to pull all of her bangs back into a hair tie or clipping to the side was not working.  The ties/clips fall out and then I am afraid she will choke on them lying around her.  And her hair in front is always in her face and looks very "bed head." Her hair, from the cowlick on top of her head, always wants to fall forward.  So I thought it might be easier to comb some of the hair to the front, cut them across and try to train the rest to clip to the side.  Here are the pictures of the end result.  BTW, this is the first time since her surgery that she has been in the exersaucer.  She has definitely missed it!

Julia's New Do

Just a quick update on Julia and Aaron.  Julia had surgery last Monday to put in her permanent GI tube.  She came home last Thursday and is healing and doing very well.  It is wonderful to not have that NG tube taped to her face all the time and I am sure she is more comfortable not having a tube down her nose and throat!   Her hair is slowly getting longer.  It's hard to decide what to do with it.  She is still most comfortable and happy laying down.  Unfortunately, this is conducive to messy, matted hair!  I guess this picture below shows my first attempt at keeping her growing bangs out of her face without having to cut them.  We'll see how it goes......

Aaron and I are taking a trip up to Philadelphia this coming Monday afternoon.  We will stay over up there and his evaluation by the pediatric orthopedic center at Shriner's is on Tuesday, August 23.   The following Monday he has outpatient surgery to straighten his eyes.

On top of all of this, I am in the process of getting everything ready for this next school year.  Kacey and I started 7th grade as of today and Ethan will be starting 2nd grade as soon as I can get his curriculum organized and ready to go.  As I have mentioned before,  Aaron and Regan are going to attend 4 year old preschool at our church, which thankfully doesn't start until after Labor Day weekend.  This will be three (MWF) mornings a week......we are sure they are both going to enjoy this!
