a day of firsts....

i always thought that i would be giving noah his first haircut. my baby is 9 months old this week and time is flying. his hair was starting to fly a bit too. we had sat down earlier this week and i attempted to give him a trim. alas, he decided he would rather hold my cutterbees than let me cut his hair. so today, we decided to enjoy the process and have someone do it for him.

at first, noah wasn't quite sure that he wanted to be part of this:

notice the suspicion in his face. but then after seeing the cute fire truck chair he would sit in and baby einstein on the TV and momma standing beside him, he decided it wouldn't be TOO bad:

and finally he makes it to the home stretch without any tears:

with that we were done, mom and dad got some great photos, noah got a certificate and a baggie with his first hair cut trimmings!

it was a great day...

i have been buckling down getting all of our orders ready to ship as this will be a massive ship week! and i just want to thank ya'll for that! you (stores and consumers) are the reason we can do what we do. and i am happy to say that some of our chipboard is already on reorder from just the orders at the show. that is truly amazing to me. just 2 years ago, 1 order of chipboard from our factory would last us 9 months to 1 year and now it is selling out in 3 days at a show! that is tremendous!

i do have to admit that one benefit of Maya Road is that i have personally made it a policy that on friday afternoons after lunch, noah and i don't do any MR stuff. we play, we go outside, we run, we take a nap and hang out but we don't do Maya Road - by that time the orders for the week are out and Fedex has shipped that day so we can take a break. that to me is priceless. noah and i plan on making that our friday afternoon ritual!

ok it is back to work so that we can get our stuff out to ya'll asap but i just wanted to share a piece of our weekend with you!

PS, i have done almost 10 LOs this weekend and i will share those with you sometime soon!
