Hunters First Haircut!

While we were in Phoenix for Hunters birthday, we went to the familys favorite hairdresser for a little trim. Hunters hair was getting really long and covering his eyes, and was all over the place! We thought he would be squirmy and try to get out of the chair, so I sat with him to make him feel comfortable. He didnt seem bothered by the scissors, or new place. He sat very patiently and calmly. Then about half way through the haircut he became restless! But Aunt Jessica, Gram and Great Grandma and myself were able to work to keep his attention. Also, Sue gave Hunter several different things from her hairdressing aresnal to help & Don filmed the whole thing. It will be fun to watch in a few years. Almost time for another one! :)

Hunter's 1 year Photo Shoot

Hunter has a very talented aunt. She is an excellent professional photographer here in San Diego. She has quite a knack for getting the right shot. We asked her to give her lil nephew a photo shoot for his 1 year milestone. Well, the day came, and we were ready, but the weather was not! It was raining! Bummer...but we went to our location anyway, hoping it would clear up. A great location in Carlsbad, that a very nice photographer friend of Nickys let us "borrow" for this special shoot.
We got our first outfit on, and let Hunter explore his new wet surroundings and Nicky, armed with an umberella, went to town clicking away. He was cooperative once he realized the rain wasnt a bad thing and found some cool things to play with. Then, the rain stopped!!! Finally, we could relax about getting Hunters clothes wet and dirty. Also, the big guns were let out. Jaiden, looking fly in plaid, and Allessandra looking adorable in her floral vintage dress and cute headbands... joined Hunter and made the pictures pop! We also found a great barn, old wagon, and water silo. The kids did their best to hang in there and put on some great smiles. Nicky got some great shots!! She'll have to do our christmas photo:)

A little trip to Phoenix for a big event!

SO! We just celebrated my sons First Birthday on October 8th, 2010!! It was quite a day... His aunts and uncles decorated Grams house, I made his cake, and his special birthday t-shirt, and Dad ordered all the pizzas! It was great to get all the family and friends together for such an event! Hunter "opened" presents-Mom helped-and then had some pizza and cake. Hunter was given a little cake to "eat" and he sure did make a mess, and ate a little. He was literally dong circles in the living room when we let him out of his chair! He had a blast! Cant wait for the next one-but not too fast approaching I hope!

We went to Phoenix, where my family lives. We stayed at 'Grams' house-my mom-and had a great time visiting everyone. We arrived October 5th, Aunt Jessicas 22nd birthday. We were very happy to make it there to spend that time with her.
, Also, Uncle Chase is in the high school bandand Thursday night we went to see him perform with the band at a football game. Hunter loved it! He had to stand up and cheer and dance to the music. It was more fun to watch than the football game ;) But when the band came out, Hunter went nuts! He even screamed at people who walked in front of him because then he couldnt see. :D Quite a fun night.
One of the other big firsts, I guess, was Hunters first Happy Meal-not that he'll get used to eating them. He had chicken nuggets, apple slices, apple juice, and of course, the toy. He had such a big smile on his face. I guess thats why they named it a "Happy Meal".
