Another First.

...I was privileged to share another very special first with Charlie and his mama on Saturday.

Thanks to a little bit of Daniel Tiger on Katie's phone, a xylophone app on Katie's iPad, a snack pack full of crackers and a bowl full of brushes, Carla* had enough time to give Charlie his first haircut.

I'm pretty sure the only one who experienced any trauma was Katie.

And even that had faded by the time they'd finished the train ride at Avalon - another first for both of them! We're probably going to make that ride a fairly regular occurrence - he loved it! I can't wait to ride it with him...maybe tomorrow?!

*I think this was a special haircut for Carla, too. She gave Katie her first haircut, too...some 27 years ago!
