big boy

from this: (taken on 3/16)

to this:

how did this haircut age my son to look like such a big boy??  learned my lesson about the haircut, yes i did.  never walk away from the supposed "trained stylist" that is cutting off all but the military length of your son's hair.  because apparently that's what saying "just clean it up a little around the edges and leave it longer on the top" will get you.  i've gotten used to it and still think my kingston is the cutest little guy around, but i just wasn't ready to see him looking like a 4 year old.  he's 2!
speaking of big boys--our big boy learned how to climb out of his crib.  so, we were forced to begin the toddler bed stage.  and needless to say, it isn't going so well.  those of you that know us know that kingston has never been a stellar sleeper.  we've had some mirage-like glimpses of a full night's sleep here and there but we travelled a whole lot last year with it being our first year back in texas (there was a lot of friends and family to see!), and so perhaps kingston never got truly "used to" his own room.  with the travelling we started some bad habits and now here we are, with our big boy 2 year old that would rather sleep with us than in his own room.  don't get me wrong, i love to snuggle, but for us, i think it's important that kingston sleeps in his own bed.  so, we are in the process of sleep training all over again.  and it's been rough.  tips, hints, pointers and empathy all gladly accepted. :)


  1. Oh my gosh... that is such a huge difference a haircut can make. Both are gorgeous shots! And he is and will always be adorable!

    As far as tips... wish I could remember some. But I am behind you as long as you get in all the snuggle time you need and deserve!


  2. thanks Tracy! :) I think that we are making some progress, fingers crossed!
    We cannot wait to see you!

  3. Wow, what an amazing comparison. What an adorable little guy he has always been. It's unfair that something as innocent as a haircut can make him grow up right before your eyes!

  4. Oh, and the Hendrix shirt...how did I not comment on the Hendrix shirt?! <3

    1. ahhh, and with less than a month to go until he turns 4...time goes by so quickly.
