First Haircut

Grant went for his first haircut yesterday and he didn't like it one bit.  He cried the entire time.  We are hoping he will get used to it and the next time it won't be quite so traumatic for him.  A man that was in the shop even offered him his cell phone (which he normally loves to play with) but that didn't work either. 

Glen, his barber, was very patient and said he was used to first timers being upset.

He looked so cute and is all ready for his first birthday!

Stay tuned for more haircut news in the next couple of days.....

Well, make that two ER visits!  My little Parker had an accident in Walmart last night - somehow falling out of the cart.  He had a bump on the head and a busted chin.  Ashley and Pete took him to the ER here in Wynne and they were so busy they didn't know when they could see him.  After an hour they still hadn't signed him in.  Soooo, Pete took the other kids home and I went with Ashley to the Forrest City ER.  Thank goodness they weren't busy and saw him right away.  They cleaned up his chin and put dermabond on it and said it didn't look like he had a concussion so he was all fixed up.  He was so good I couldn't believe it.  Whatever they asked him to do was fine with him. 

Anyway, these holidays are about to get the best of us.  I'm still thinking about that cruise but now we will have to go from Thanksgiving until New Year's Day to keep everyone safe. 

Also, when Parker was in the Wynne ER, Russ' grandmother was brought in with a broken hip after she fell at home.  Keep her in your prayers - she has had a tough year!  His other grandmother went in the hospital on Monday with a broken pelvis after a fall. 

Ashley and I got home right before Midnight to welcome a new year (lots of fireworks around my house) so I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
