Cutting Off a Piece of Toddlerhood

I'm really not sure what it is about hair, and the cutting of it that gets me all emotional. It grows and grows and grows more, all it takes is time. However, for me, the cutting on ones hair is some sort of milestone, or life changer. And, perhaps I feel this way considering that I've only drastically changed my hairstyle once as a grown up! 

With that being said, you can only imagine how hard it was for me to take Giulietta to the hair salon to get her lovely long locks snipped. Clearly my sweet girl has been overdue for a haircut for sometime, but I just couldn't get myself to make her an appointment and actually drive her there. But, with her Elementary school career starting and the transition of her no longer being a toddler, but now a child, I decided with A LOT of persuading from my Mom and Giulietta that is was time. It was amazing to me to see what a transformation was made that afternoon. My sweet girl walked into Kiddy Kastle with the little glimpses of toddlerhood in her spirit and long hair, and walked out the front door of the salon thirty minutes later with shorter hair and the charisma of a grown child ready to take on her future! 

And, let the hair go is exactly what we did. We measured it, bagged it up, and mailed it off to someone in need of my little ladies beautiful strands.

A Prince is Born...Holden Enzo Morad

It is hard to believe that it was just 9 months ago when I found out I was pregnant with my sweet boy, and now I'm holding him in my arms gazing at his wrinkled little forehead. In fact, my whole pregnancy seems like it passed with a blink of an eye, except for those tiresome and tedious last weeks that drudged on and on with no end in sight! After A LOT of waiting, squatting, walking, and numerous other activities and happenings, my doctor finally decided to induce me a week early.

We arrived at the hospital for a planned induction at 5:30 am, and after having my water break on its own and the nurses not believing me, me being yo-yoed on & off pitocin until my body finally just said "screw it, we are doing this", my doctor having to run out of the room twice for two emergencies, my epidural only taking effect on half my body, and the nurses almost having to do the delivery...

Holden Enzo Morad was born!  He arrived at 9:42 AM on July 31, 2013 weighing 8 pounds & 1 ounce, and measuring 21.5 inches long!

They threw my Baby Boy on my chest, and my heart immediately fell deeper in LOVE for my sweet little man!
