Here he is settling into the barber's chair and trying to figure out what the heck is going on.
This is my favorite picture from the day. I think he's trying to channel his inner Hulk so he can explode with righteous rage and jump out of the chair to take us all on. If I was good with Photoshop, I would turn him green just to make me laugh.
This is the moment he realized what was going on and began to have a full meltdown. I had just put a Gerber Yogurt Melt in his mouth, which is what is showing here. No amount of singing, clapping or bribery with baby snacks could convince him that this was a good idea.
And here he is after his traumatic experience, enjoying Burger King for lunch, complete with a drop of apple juice on his chin. I actually have tried all day to get a better picture of him post-haircut, but in a move that clearly cries, "Stick it to 'em!" he's avoided my camera all day. Sly dude.
It's shorter than I imagined it would be, which is a lesson to take him off base next time. Military barbers cut military hair, regardless of client, I guess! :) There are also a few spots that are a bit shorter than others, but considering how much he was fussing and squirming, I'm just glad he didn't lose an ear. All in all, I'm pleased with the haircut and can't beleive how much older it makes him look!

I'm nearing thirty and battling the type of acne that was the bane of my adolescent existence. I'm no stranger to adult acne, but I haven't had a Mount Vesuvius like this in ages. This is no small "spot," as they call them here in England. It might as well be my third eye.
That's right, I've got a third eye. And yes, as a matter of fact, it can read your mind, and it knows you're thinking wicked, judgemental thoughts towards it. Be careful, though. You can see by the above evidence that it's already angry. Angry and reading your mind. If you're not cautious with your thoughts, it will smite you.
My third eye will smite you!
Or perhaps the inflammation will recede at least a little bit over night.
Seriously. It's simply not right to be 29 and battling this kind of embarrassment. Thank goodness for bangs.
Caleb thinks it's hilarious to wear his shorts on his head. He might just think it's funny because I laugh the entire time. Seriously! Is there anything cuter?!
"As a matter of fact, I'm not ready for my close up!" This is the kind of picture he'll kill me for not deleting some day, but it cracks me up! This was my attempt to get his "shorts on the head" routine the first time. Clearly this was unsuccessful. And normally I have no problem deleting bad pictures, but something about his expression in this one just kills me!
