First Haircut

So, after realizing that Indy did bare a striking resemblance to Lyle Lovett, we got him a haircut.He was great. He kept looking around wanting to see what was going on, but otherwise he was completely cool and calm. He looked so teeny sitting in that big chair...sweet little boy.
But he still has his darling chubby baby face, so all is well. He had his 9 month appointment last week and is in perfect health. He's on the skinny side: 3rd percentile in weight and 25th in height. I guess for some babies to be 90th percentile, others have to be on the far side of the scale. Despite that, he loves to eat. He has graduated to table food and loves eating pretty much everything, especially puffs. And he loves dropping food on the floor...thankfully, we have two fuzzy puppies that happily take care of that.

The New House!

We moved the Friday before Christmas, and with few exceptions, we're completely done unpacking and getting settled. I'm really amazed and thankful that we were able to get so much done.

To see the Facebook album of pictures from start (a pile of dirt) to the complete, mostly decorated house, click here.

We even had time to have a little get-together at our house for New Year's Eve. We had 30+ guests, but there was plenty of room to mix and mingle, but as usual, everyone congregated around the food. I made chocolate chip cookies, homemade vanilla marshmallows, brie in pastry with apples, roasted red pepper hummus, ranch dill dip, brown sugar bacon-wrapped lil' smokies...all made in my new kitchen.
Indy played in his high chair and sampled the party food ahead of time. He loves feeding himself, so I gave him a little of whatever I was nibbling at the time, like hummus and crackers.

Including part of my chocolate chip cookie. I'm sure you're not supposed to give babies cookies...But he liked it. :-)
