My Baby Is Growing Up! :(

Ben has been very excited about the signs of growing up! I would love to leave out the fact that he would check for armpit hair everyday, but he did and it's just a part of saying that he's growing up.

For several weeks Ben has been telling us that he needed to shave. WHAT?! I can't possibly have a child that is old enough to need to shave! Well, one night Ben said it again, Jon felt Ben's face and said, "Yes!" Oh my goodness! Of course, when I think of Ben wanting to shave I think of razors and shaving cream. Thankfully this "first" wasn't anything like that! Jon uses an electric razor, and therefore didn't have any shaving cream and razors in the house. So Ben's first shave was with an electric razor. As silly as it sounds, I think it actually softened the blow to this sad mama's heart.

So, there it is. Ben's first time shaving...



There are many firsts in life and it seems like so many of them are happening these days with three growing kiddos! Sometimes it seems like they will never grow up, but some days I look at them and wonder, "when did you get so big?" I want to cherish every moment of my kiddos growing up and remember them forever!

This brings back memories of us using that pink/red electric razor of Mom's... :)
