Brand New Boy....GUY?

Before....
...... AFTER!
This kid is not looking like a "kid" so much anymore! Saturday we were sitting in the back yard of our friends house watching the guys build a garage. Luke walks outside, sits in the chair next to me and says..."OK, it's time to cut it ALL OFF." My friend Sabrina just HAPPENS to be a hair dresser and without hesitation the scissors came out and the cutting began. This boy has not had hair this short since he was in 4th grade! He is now going into 8th grade looking like a Senior. Standing nearly 6 ft tall, he is literally shooting up before my eyes. I am so proud of him. Luke is amazing! The kid (guy, whatever) has a heart of gold and I am consistently proud of the person he is becoming day by day.

I KNOW,MAREN! I think I am going to cry! It is a HAPPY CRY - I love this time in my life, these boys are such a treat! Who KNEW it would be SO FUN to have ALL BOYS! I always thought I needed pink and pig tails in my early parenting career, now I know that the plan is PERFECT.

You know me, sometimes it is just the way I roll! WAIT till little Caden & Brody tower over you and takes on the look of a "guy", it will turn ya into instant "sap". ;) Thanks for the compliment....so sweet.

I honestly would never guess that was even the same person. He looks so handsome and seriously older now. Somehow with the hair gone, he lost his little boy cheeks and developed a jawline! Wow! He's gonna have the girls after him this summer! smiles...
