Remember when your baby first smiled, first ate cereal, first ate peas, first rolled over, first sat up, first pulled up, first word, first walked? I think I have pictures of every single one of those from every angle (well except no one can remember what Mollie's first word was--don't tell her that though--we're going with Parker--that's my story and I'm sticking to it!) Someday they will be at least filed orderly in a box for each child. Right now they are shoved in a variety of boxes in a variety of places.

So a couple of weeks ago, Parker shaved for the first time. I'd been kind of bugging him to get rid of that "milk" mustache he had. So while we were at the beach he said, I want to shave. I thought hmmm, sensitive skin, salt water, probably not a great combo. So we waited till we got home, just. I think we pulled in the driveway, got out of the car and went straight upstairs to the bathroom to find him his first razor. So I ran and got the camera--actually it was still packed in the car, so I got my phone. I step into the bathroom line up and shoot. Parker goes "what are you doing?!?!?!" I said, "it's the first time you are shaving, I'm taking your picture." He said, "Are you crazy?" and shut the door. So this was all I could capture of the first.
