My Baby Boy is Shaving!

Yesterday, Tony asked me to ask his dad to teach him how to shave. Tony has about 4 long hairs on his chin and a "waxable" mustache. This means that the hairs on his lip are getting fuller, but not spikey-er. A good waxing would remove those mustache hairs.
So, today Danny showed Tony how to apply shaving cream. Tony, not yet finesse with the cream, gave himself a "Santa" look. He will get better with experience. (They couldn't start until Marisa ran to get my camera to mark the event. I can't wait to scrapbook this!)
Next, Tony starts shaving! Danny told him not to shave above his nose, but once again, he will get better with practice. At this point, he will need to shave once a week or so.

One more close up. I'm in tears. I thought I was upset when Tony lost his first tooth. That pales in comparison to this event. Literally, I'm a basket case. I'm quitting my job tomorrow. And, did you notice the t-shirt Tony is wearing? It's my commemorative tee from the Jack Tar in Puerta Vallarta when Danny and I got married. I have heart burn, I'm going to bed.


  1. Wow. Another milestone.

    FYI. I awarded you a blog award in a post on my blog.

  2. awe. They do grow up too fast. Do you want my 3 year old? I am giving him away tonight. I probably won't in the morning though. :::grin::::
