First (Real) Haircut (and 27 Weeks)

Today I had to take a day off because our daycare is closed for a vacation day.  I decided that since we have the time on a weekday that maybe we should make an appt to get munchkin's hair cut. You know, to fix the absolute hack job that J and I did on it a few months ago.  I didn't necessarily want to spend the money for it, but I figured they should be able to do it without stabbing him with scissors or poking an eye out.

I googled some places and found one that just opened no too far from home.  After having some trouble finding it we made it in (among all the construction).   First I let Andrew play for a while to get comfortable just being in a new place:

Then it was time to get in the seat.  A cute little "Cars" chair.  She tried to give him a magnetic drawing toy, but he was wary:

So we just put the cape on him to get ready:

He did pretty well.  He started with the pouty face and whimpering and escalated to full blown crying before long, but he sat still.  I could deal with him crying as long as he wasn't fighting the haircut:

She worked quickly and before long my handsome little man had a new 'do (and a lollipop):

He looks so much more grown up, but at least now his hair is out of his eyes and off of his neck so he can stay cooler.  My little guy is growing up...

And now for this week's update:

How far along? 27w0d and the size of a head of rutabaga.  WTF is a rutabaga?  He's probably around 14 inches and 2 lbs now.  He also has brain activity going on.

Weight loss/gain:  I weighed myself this morning and it showed a 27 lb gain. How the hell did I gain that  much already?

Maternity clothes: Mostly in maternity clothes now.  Pretty much all pants and shorts are, except for shorts I have with an elastic waist. I can still get into those. And I can still wear some regular shirts as long as they are longer in length.

Symptoms:  Besides my ever present cement bowel I've been getting some tightening in my belly.

Sex (of baby):  It's a BOY!!!

Name: Still nada.  We'll get to it eventually.

Sleep: Not too bad for the past few nights. I'm so tired when I get up, though.  I wish I could get more sleep but unless I go to bed right after Andrew does that probably won't happen.

Best moment this week? Honestly there isn't much going on.

Movement: A lot - particularly when I try to lay in my favorite sleeping position turned towards my stomach. He's not a fan of that and lets it be known immediately.

Food cravings:  I's just always hungry. I  need to reign in the snacking.

Belly button in or out?  In

What I miss?  Feeling attractive.

What I'm looking forward to?  Taking Andrew down to some Spoleto stuff this weekend. I think we're going to the market and to look at some of the art stuff tomorrow.

Milestones:  Hitting 3rd tri and now less than 3 months to go.

What I'm nervous about:  About transitioning Andrew to his new room. I know it's going to be a huge adjustment and I envision him not sleeping, which means I won't be sleeping.

And here are this week's pictures.  The belly is definitely rounding out a lot more:

And just for fun here is a head on shot:


  1. You look so cute. I think your scale is lying. No way you're 27 pounds up! You look awesome. And I remember doing the haircut with James in the car. He was good for the first one and then it took a LONG time for him to be a willing participant again. I always think he looks another year older when we get his hair cut short, but its cute, and Andrew looks super adorable!

    1. Thank you! Part of me wants to believe that my scale is wrong because that seems like a lot of weight and I can't see where it all is. I can definitely account for a few pounds of it in the chest area!

      Andrew was pretty good for the haircut. He cried but didn't flail so at least the lady was able to get it cut. Not sure how he'll react for the next one - it might be a while before that pne happens!

  2. OMG, his pouty lip is so sad! He looks very handsome though :)

    1. I can't help but laugh when he gives us the pouty lip. It made me sad that he was crying the whole time, but I was happy he at least didn't fight it!

  3. I laughed at the Rutabaga! I have no idea either! Getting to this fun stage of third trimester is exciting! I still think you look so good for this far! Maybe this is why I should have been in better shape before :/ Transitioning is hard, but at least you have a few months to do it before baby arrives. Our little guy still likes to sneak in around 3-4am every morning:)
