A Little Off the Top

BubTar got his hair cut for summer yesterday. He was getting so frustrated with his long hair getting in his eyes during swim team that we decided to shave most of it off. As soon as she shaved off the bulk of the length, I thought, "Oh my goodness, there's my baby!" He looked so like his baby/toddler self without all that hair, I may have even gasped aloud when he looked over at me to give me a thunbs up, his seal of approval. After he was done, he stood up and unfolded himself from underneath the barber's cape, I was shocked to see how tall and mature he is. Every time I've looked at him since, I've had the same experience. "Oh my baby! Oh my big kid!" I'll adjust to his new look soon, but for now each and every time I see him, I see both the past and present etched on his face simultaneously, my baby who is now such a big kid.



I started the blog the month this photo was taken, I can't believe he's grown so much in that time!
