Jude…8 Months


I realize that today actually marks 10 months for Jude and clearly I’m way behind on my blogging, but there are just a couple of highlights from Month 8 that I wanted to share.  Here they are…

Jude’s first haircut!  I never would have dreamed of cutting Ben’s hair when he was this age.  It really wasn’t until around eight months that Ben’s hair started to grow.  However, with Jude it’s a different story.  I love this picture because you can see just what I’m talking about.  See that little tuft of hair hanging over his left ear.  He was in need of a trim.  So while we were all together in Branson over Christmas, Omi grabbed her scissors and did just that…she trimmed the hair over his ears and in the back along his neck. 

Here’s the chaos that was actually going on around Jude during the haircut.  We sat him on top of the kitchen table while Omi trimmed his hair, Jake steadied his head and I kept him from toppling over.  Jude was quite the trouper!   To keep him from getting upset we let him play with a wrapped gift box and sang to him.  Whew!  I’m pretty sure all of our arms were burning after that, but in the end Jude was one sharp-looking little guy!  Thanks, Omi!

Another first…a ride in the swing!  Before flying home from our family Christmas vacation in Branson we stayed with Tim, Candice and Laci for a few days.  They have two great little swings out back and Jude loved every second he got to ride!  Take a look for yourself…

    We’re loving these rapid-fire updates! Keep it up!

    Jude seemed to take his first haircut pretty well.

    Also, Jo, we sure hope that Ben and Jude got the genes for their hair from your family’s side and not the Froemsdorf side. We have a lot of good genes on the Froemsdorf side, but to be honest, the male pattern baldness gene just isn’t one of them.

    Hey, Matt! I like Jake’s little saying, “God only made a few perfect heads, the rest he put hair on!” 🙂
