The Many Hats of Nate

I will begin by saying that my son is for the most part a willing participant when trying on new "hats", but there are times when I think he would rather we didn't use him and his head for our amusement, don't get me wrong he loves it too as you will see in the folowing pictures. So without further ado I give you.....The Many "Hats" of Nate.......

The New York Yankees choice :)

His first ball cap from Old Navy :)

And now some "hats" that are just for fun....

As you can see even shirts can be "hats" :). He really is alot of fun and a good sport, I'm sure when he gets older he'll be anything but thankful.....hehe.....

New Haircut and My Best Friend

I haven't blogged in a while so I figured I would a little bit while Nate's napping. I got a new haircut a few weeks ago isn't it cute....NOT....I feel like I look like Dudley Moore! Ok so maybe its not that bad, but still I don't feel that its a ME hair cut. It's growing out now and I will continue to let it grow for quite sometime. I learned an important lesson, never give vague directions to a hair stylist and know what length is best for yourself, for your own sanity's sake. For me I am a very simple gal when it comes to my hair I like color and being able to just blow it dry and go or air dry and go either way SHORT HAIR=HIGH MAINTENANCE! And any of my friends will tell you I'm so not a high maintenance much of a "free spirit" :).

So onto my next topic, my best friend Marylin! She came to visit Arizona last week and I drove to Phoenix to see her and her little man James, her girls were with her mom, but just so you know I would have loved to have seen them too :). Anyway, it was beyond great to see her, she came to town just when I needed her the most and she didn't even plan it or know best part about my visit with her was that it was like no time had passed since I saw her last, even though she had a new baby..hehe..we went shopping at one of our favorite stores Target and then had dinner at Applebee's :). It's days like that I miss the most, just a regular day with my best friend, what would've been even greater is if there would have been a Border's near by :). Out of everyone she is who I miss the most back in Vegas. Thanks for visiting and please come back soon...I miss you!!!!!

Nate's First hair cut

I have been struggling for quite some time on when to cut my son's hair, part of me (the hippy part) wanted to just let his hair grow and then the other night right after his bath, he laid down on the kitchen floor and rolled his head around while I did the dishes, when he got up he had lots of dust and a few pieces of macaroni (ok, so I hadn't swept in a while..I know GROSS, but Nate took care of it for anyway, it was at that moment I realized I needed to chop his mop. So off to the bathroom we went where I grabbed Mark's clippers, turned them on, figured out how to use them...hehe...and sat Nate on my lap and here is the result....

No more long haired baby....I miss his long waves that he used to have, but what a difference just a few inches off has made in how people react to him and he doesn't end up all sweaty on the back of his neck anymore :). He looks so grown up to me now... I forget how fast the months and years go by.

The addictions of the household

I have come to realize that all of us have an addiction, I knew I did and I knew Mark did and now Nate has developed his at only 14 months of age :). Here are our addictions.....

Mark's Slurpee

I love Starbucks....Mocha's with Vanilla..yummm

Nate's addiction....Goldfish

I don't think we'll be kicking our habits anytime soon and I'm sure there will be more as time goes on....Dang addictive personalities! :)
