First Haircut

We took Oliver to the neighborhood barber shop for a little trim.

He was surprisingly well-behaved while Kris cleaned up his baby mullet.

Toward the end of the haircut, she had to chase him around with the scissors and the clippers.
Despite his activity level, Oliver did not lose an earlobe and his hair appears to be the same length on both sides. Kris earned a hefty tip for her efforts, we think she probably needed a good nap after we left too.

Preschool "Graduation"

My preschool had a graduation ceremony to celebrate the end of our school year.

They have a special program where the kids all line up against the wall and sing songs. By the end of the year, most of us are a little better at performing and we actually sing instead of standing there like a bunch of deer caught in headlights.

After the program, refreshments were served.

Hellllllloooo, ladies.

One last look at Oliver's long-ish locks:
Can you guess what is coming next?

Happy Half Birthday!

Oliver celebrated his half birthday on my birthday.

He was quite excited to learn of this special occasion.

Dad thinks that Oliver needs to start wearing this shirt more often, as he just keeps getting handsomer by the day.

Oliver also had a recent check-up and he's catching up to me! He is 32 inches tall and weighs in at a whopping 29 1/2 pounds!

Happy Birthday!

I celebrated a birthday recently.
My new number is 4 and I'm pretty excited about it.

I'm also pretty excited about my new Belle princess dress.
Fancy, isn't it?

We invited all of my girl friends from preschool over for a princess party.
It was lots of fun. We made princess crowns and wands and ate lots of tiny cupcakes.

I also had my 4-year-old checkup after my birthday. I'm 37 inches tall and I weigh 33 pounds for those that are keeping track.

A little bit of catching up to do....

We have been quite busy these past few weeks.

See how busy Oliver is?

I'm so busy that I resort to falling asleep on the couch snuggling with the DVD player remote control.

When we're not lounging around, we like to play.

I feel pretty fortunate to have a brother that doesn't mind when I make him play princesses.
Lucky for him, I happen to have an extra Cinderella outfit that is just the right size.

I think he kind of likes it.

Er, maybe not.

Sometimes Oliver prefers to do something a little more manly. In that case, I sometimes draw whiskers on him.
He looks pretty ferocious, doesn't he?
