Owen's First Haircut!

I have debated for weeks over whether or not Owen needed a haircut.  He had these cute little curls on the back of his neck, and his bed head was so cute!  But I ultimately decided that the majority of the time his hair looked scraggly, fuzzy, and like he had never seen a brush.  With the support of several friends, Andy, and my mom, I came to the conclusion that he needed to have his hair cleaned up.  Here are some pictures of Owen's messy hair...

We took him to Kim at Beck's yesterday, and she was awesome with him.  He sat in Andy's lap, and my mom fed him puffs and cheerios.  I was busy taking pictures.  Kim cut the fuzz off the back, but she left the top and his bangs just how they were.

Kim doing her magic...
All done!

It is true that a haircut makes little boys look more grown up, but he still looks like my little boy (especially from the front!).  Now he will look like a little clean-cut one year old for his birthday tomorrow and his party on Saturday!

Ok, so I am a blog slacker...

I know it has been a while, but things have been so busy at the Sneed household, there has been little time for pictures and even less time for blogging.  Anyway, now I will hit the highlights from the past month...

  • On July 23, while I was out of town at a quilt show in Knoxville, Owen crawled for the first time.  He started out slow, but now he is FAST and in to everything!

  • The next day, Owen started pulling up.  He is getting too big, too fast!

  • I am still plugging away on my quilt.  I have completed more than half of my quilt blocks!  Pictures to come soon!

  • While grocery shopping the other day, I looked at the "year to date" savings on my receipts from 3 stores (CVS, Food Lion, and Bi-Lo) from those three stores alone, I have saved $975.00 in 2009.

  • I got a new sewing machine!  I am so excited about this.  It sews and embroiders.  I also got free classes for buying it.  Once I figure out what I am doing, I will be posting pictures of what I have learned to make.

  • This week, Owen got to switch from formula to whole milk.  This is a BIG deal for us.  His special formula was $27.99 a can!  Because of his protein intolerance, we had to phase milk in slowly over the course of the week, and his doctor has to evaluate him next week to be sure that he is not reacting to the milk.  Please pray that we are over the intolerance and Owen can have a normal diet!

  • In two weeks, Owen will be a year old.  This is impossible for me to wrap my mind around!  How can he have been here that long?  On the other hand, I cannot even remember life without him!  I wouldn't trade him for the world!

Ok, so that is all I can think of for now, and I will try to leave more frequent updates.  Thanks for keeping up with the Sneeds!
