I took William and Zachary together for their check ups last week. It went a lot better than i thought it was going to!
Williams 2 year check up : height- 33 inches weight- 28 pounds
Zacharys 4 month check up : height- 23 inches weight- 11 pounds
Zach is in the 3rd percentile just like William at his age. My little guys :) Although William is about caught up to most of his friends now.

Right now it is hunting season for deer in the LP forest. This means that a lot of deer come and hang out in the park around the homes because they are smart and know they won't be hunted there. We have one particular mother deer that visits us every evening around the same time looking for a handout.We call her Momma. She hears the door open and rather than running the other way, she comes closer looking at me with those eyes that say "do you have any food"? How can i turn down a nursing momma deer! So i toss her something to eat. Now when i make salads and prep fruit i always save the scraps for our deer friend. William gets really excited when he sees the deer. He shouts "oh! deer friends" it's super cute! We just love it up here in paradise!

William gets his first hair cut

It wasn't easy, i loved those baby curls, but today i cut Williams hair. I was tired of the daily battle of "doing" his hair with water and a hair brush. Everyday William would watch me get my hands wet and come toward him and he would immediately run the other way screaming "no no no". I would catch him, wet down his hair and brush it out to bring out his curls. Today I asked William if he wanted me to cut his hair and he said yes. So, i sat him in his chair at the table, fed him TJ star cookies and started to cut. I thought it turned out pretty good for my first time cutting an almost two year olds hair. It's still shaggy but not out of control. It no longer will stick straight out over the ears. And the ringlet curls are no longer hanging down the back of his neck. Well, i think it was time.

I did pull his curls into a little ponytail to cut them off and i did save them in a plastic bag. So, as soon as i get that far in his scrap book (if i ever do) they will have a home there.

William did a really good job sitting there for me while i cut his hair... and if i had a better camera i would have taken some better shots of his new do. I guess i get what i get until we buy a camera.
