ok...in the scheme of things...there are sadder days in the world. however, last monday (the 2nd), elijah had his first haircut. those little baby curls on the back of his neck really just had to go. my mom did the honors while john held elijah and i, of course, documented the occasion. we were all a little sad...but it does look better. he really did not enjoy the scissors on his neck; he kept saying, "it burns! it burns!". silly boy.
and yes, i did save the trimmings. :o)
