Where did he go?

Today we took Michael to get a haircut this morning. The haircut ritual has developed from the fear that he had the first time (and the second and the third) to accepting that it has to be done to actually enjoying it. Michael likes to look good, as he has to approve what he wears every day. He is our little fashionista and I joke that he didn't come from me.

But as he was getting his hair cut, I realized that he was looking more like a little boy and less like a toddler. I wondered how time could fly by so fast and what happened to the baby that was born just a little more than 3 years ago. At the same time, I am really enjoying the little man that Michael is growing up to be. He definitely has his moments but he is so loving. And as the haircut was coming to an end and I looked over at him, I thought that he also seems so much bigger since Katie has arrived.

Here is a picture of the little man that he has become:

Yes, he does look grown up. Cute, but grown up.

LOL. My Michael does get his fashion sense from me. That's why he will just about anything mixed with anything else.

They do grow up so fast, especially after a new brother or sister comes into the picture. I took some pictures of Kendall the other day and thought the same thing. "Where did my baby go?" Michael is growing up to be a handsome little man.

So handsome! I agree. Analese has grown SO much in the 8 months that Mariele has been here. I look at her pictures the day Mariele was born and she looked so babyish!

He is definately a little man. They're growing up so fast!
