My Baby's First Haircut

So, Gavin is a year and a half old now and has beautiful blonde slightly curly hair...well had beautiful blonde slightly curly hair...we gave him his first haircut on Sunday. As you can see from the picture he wasn't too happy about it. Javier's mom started the haircut, then i did a few snips and then Javier finished it up...I tried not to cry as i watched those little curls fall to the ground. I don't know why the first haircut is such an emotional thing for me...i guess its because its taking the baby look away and he looks like such a little boy now instead. I am ok with that, he is a beautiful little boy. He was pretty defiant to start but he soon figured out it wasn't that bad.
He was repeating "Noooooo Nooooooo Noooooo, it was so funny.
Thats Grandpa holding his head still
Big Boy now!
He was happy when he saw his new do!

So...We're Married!

August 30th 2008...Javier and I finally got married! The wedding was awesome, it really turned out just the way we were hoping it would. The food was great,our closest friends and family were there with us and the weather was nice too! My Aunt Terri and my best girlfriend Madeline were my two bridesmaids, I couldn't have asked for two better people to stand next to me as i said my vows and they both looked so beautiful! It really made me feel at ease knowing that they were there standing with me. My Dad was able to come down from Oregon for the wedding, he walked me down the isle which meant the world to me. I didn't think that anything was going to feel "different" after we got married because we have been together for so long and already have our son but I was pleasantly surprised when i woke up on Sunday morning and realized that it did feel different. I am so glad that we made a commitment to each other and to our little family to love each other and to stay a family through thick and thin...till death do us part. I couldn't have chosen a better man to be married to, he has a wonderful heart and is my best friend. I look forward to being able to share the rest of our lives together and to raise our beautiful little boy together as The Hernandez Family!
