Haircut and other adventures

As I went the the store to pick up some pt shorts for Jon I saw the Army issued undershirts and thought of a craft project that was recommended for us to do. You put the kids hands on the middle of the shirt so he can wear around something from us. So I bought some shirts for us to try this today. While we were stripped and painting I realized Molly and I needed a little excitement in our life so it was decided today would be the day for our first haircut. With her in her bumbo I trimmed off some in the back - really I just cut off her rat tail.
The inch of hair that was cut off
The nice clean line - a lot less scraggly
This is what happens when your mom tries to do a craft project without enough help. I did the feet one at a time and tried to clean them as a I went but I totally lost the battle with her cute little hand. Man can she move fast - we had black paint on our hand, leg, chest, face and even back. I have no idea how it got there but it did. We went upstairs for a bath right after this and had to change out the water once. The amazing thing about the bumbo was all the paint came out after a little elbow grease.
The finished project - a shirt for Jon to wear. It was supposed to have a cute saying that says: I love you (hands outstretched on both sides) this much and once you left (using the foot) nothing has been right (using the foot). I was just thankful to have something on the shirt to get in the mail and the fact that my daughter didn't get black paint in her eye so we just left it at this.
And last but not least tonight we went the Classic Toys - if you live in Alaska stay away from this store!!! It has so many cute things that you are going to want to buy everything! I got Molly a teething toy that crunches and has tags and she loves it already. Her sunshine brings a smile to her face - which in turn brings one to mine. I love a happy baby.

Clearly Molly has her own sense of how the finished project should look; so, she decided to take charge and make the craft reflect her personality. She is noted for always being on the move – so no sitting nor holding her hands still. I am sure that Jon will love the personalized shirt made by two very special people.
