Emmett's First Buzz Cut

Emmett's hair is (correction -- was) out of control.� He definitely inherited his full head of hair from both me and James (mainly James), and we recently realized keeping it at the length we like would involve very frequent trips to Snip-its.

Lately, since it's been getting hotter, I've started feeling sorry for him and the sweaty mop on top of his head.� So this evening I took matters into my own hands, grabbed James' beard trimmer and started buzzing.� It didn't bother him as much as I thought it might, and the result was about a pound of hair on the bathroom floor and a much lighter/more naked toddler head.� He definitely looks like he's a lot cooler now, too.� Introducing the new, buzz cut Emmett ...

Well, the holidays are officially underway, and as always, I'm super behind on my Christmas shopping.� We have, however, managed to get the stockings hung, the tree (delivered by James' parents from Maine) up and decorated and our holiday cards safely to their destinations.� Although I wish I could send a card to everyone I know, it's simply not possible, so here's a peak for everyone to see:

Yes, Emmett has a full-out Santa suit.� Yes, this was the best picture I could get of him in it, even after two photo shoots on separate occasions.� Now I understand why people take their kids to professional photographers.� It was literally impossible to get a quality picture of Emmett smiling that also showed off the Santa suit.

In developmental milestone news, Emmett is officially only a month away from his first birthday.� He now has six teeth -- four on the top and two on the bottom in the front -- and as of earlier this week, he weighs 21 lbs, 11 oz.

He's getting more adventurous about his standing, too.� If you let go of him he can stand without help for a few seconds, and if you hold one of his hands, he'll walk around with you.�� He can also now climb onto the chair in our living room by himself, which means he now garners a lot more attention from me.� Can I say the cliche thing?� He's seriously growing up so fast!� After much hesitation, I even gave him his first (very) overdue haircut tonight - just a little off the sides.
