A journal of a gardener in Round Rock, Texas learning how to deal with clay and limestone "soil" and the heat! Whew! But also the joy that comes from getting out in the garden and enjoying nature and family.
What a cute, cute pic! Doesn't look too painful.
Oh, what a sweetheart! Another rite of passage.
That expression looks just a little fearful;) A wonderful photo. I love pictures like that in my scrapbooks. Firsts are always fun.Marnie
Oh my goodness! Did either you or your daughter shed a tear watching those curly locks fall to the floor? The first of many milestones to come:)
Hi Susie,It didn't hurt a bit. I think it was harder on the grown-ups than little Loudon. His view of the experience was that he got to wear a cape, he got a cookie, AND a chocolate lollipop too!
Marie, he is a sweetie--it's hard to believe he will be 2 this month! A big celebration at the park is planned.
Marnie, He was so brave! He didn't shed a tear--wish the same could be said for his momma and grammy.
Rose, I think his daddy was as sad as Momma or Grammy. His hair still has lots of curls--just no more dreadlocks. ;-)
He is adorable and I would gather up all those curls that dropped to the floor and save them in an envelope or plastic baggie. Those locks are precious! I enjoyed seeing so many hummingbirds at your feeder in your previous post. Word gets around quickly when there's a good thing goin' on;-)
Hi Jan, so glad you dropped by. We did save the curls in a ziplock bag...but he still has plenty on his head. Contrary to what everyone has warned us, the curls have not disappeared since getting his hair trimmed. Sadly, the hummers have left for the season. I think they were storing up energy for their trip last week.
He is a sweetheart and bigger than when I last saw him...they grow so quickly! What a brave boy he was :)
Dear Shy Songbird,Loudon is growing so fast--he will be 2 on the 12th. He was so brave--he didn't shed a tear.
Nola,So good to hear from you! I was just thinking it had been a while, and I was hoping you weren't sick. The Zinnias have really bounced back with our cooler weather--me too! ;-)
Hi Jenny, how adorable, with cookie in hand as solace! What a head of curls too, did you save them? And your number of hummers was simply amazing. Ours will never allow even one other to feed at the same time without having a major chase scene. Frances
Oh, didn't it pain you to see all of those curly locks falling to the floor? My son had his first haircut at one year, my husband was insistent on a haircut...I fought it long enough. It just ripped my heart out....looking back, though, he was starting to look like a baby girl with those long, thick locks! Loudon looks as if he's not to sure about the haircut...I'll bet he looks like a little man now. He's adorable!
How delightful....those gorgeous curls....I do hope that you kept one......Did the haircut go okay??
Frances,We did save some locks of Loudon's hair.I have never seen hummers swarm like that...my mother has told me that they can, but it was a first for me! The only thing I can figure, is we had several hummer nests in our Lady Banks rose (which is big as a two-story VW). Maybe if they grew up together, they are more accepting? With all their chatter, they still won't explain it to me!
Spookydragonfly,It is so good to hear from you! I do hope you have gotten your connection problems solved, and we can hear more from you.It was heart-wrenching to see those curls fall to the floor! But, he still has plenty to spare! LOL! I don't think anyone has mistaken him for a girl--he is very muscular--almost stocky, and looks all boy.
Cheryl, it is so good to hear from you! I trust you had a good time at Disney World, but it is good to have you back!Little Loudon's hair looks adorable--he still has plenty of curls, but they are darker now and much easier to wash and comb out. We did save his little blond baby ends in a ziplock bag.
darling. My grandson went for a hair cut and it didn't look as though they cut any off!
Oh how cute!! That first haircut is special, isn't it?? I love his curls - I hope they didn't all go???Hugs my friend. Hope things are well at your end.
Thanks Lancashire Rose. Loudon's hair looks quite a bit shorter, but he still has plenty of curls.
Hi Wendy, it's so good to hear from you...I hope Hubby is doing well. Loudon still has a head full of curls. It was getting so long, his curls were turning into dreadlocks!Hugs!Jenny
What a memorable day...I remember a similar one with my elder son...I felt like crying when they cut his little curls off...
Hello WG, so glad you stopped by. We all cried a little when those big curls came off...it seems most of life's "firsts" are bittersweet.
What a precious photo. I wish you had shown one of you all tough as you watched. :) I would have cried, but then 'big' boys need a haircut don't they.
Beckie, there wasn't any photos of us being tough because we were all fighting the tears. His momma said she didn't care if people thought he was a girl, she didn't want to cut those curls...but it became a matter of upkeep. He was getting dreadlocks that couldn't be combed out. We are all so happy with his haircut--she did such a good job. He still has curls to spare, but no tangles. Yay!
What a sweetie! Show us an "after" photo.
Thanks Sue, I am trying to post again, but have been so busy chasing after "The Loud One" that I haven't had a chance to download any pics!
But, wait. Where are the flailing and wailing shots?! LOL
