first haircut

Harper has had her haircut before.  I have cut it and my sister has cut it, but it has been particularly unruly lately and Tom needed a haircut so we decided that Harper needed a trim too so this was her first haircut by someone we don't know.  We were a little worried that she wouldn't sit still, but she actually did a really good job.  I think she felt grown up.
Harper has definitely been catching on to things lately and the other day we were picking up Tom from work and she started to ask me about dying.  She was concerned that some of her friends that she hasn't seen recently had died.  I don't think she really grasps the concept at all, but it was interesting that she brought it up.

She is also very aware of her allergies lately.  While I was getting her ready for bed today she started to list all of the things that "make her itchy."  She said, "Pineapple, yogurt, and ice cream all make me itchy."  Unfortunately, those are all things that she really likes to eat.  So far we know that she is allergic to peanuts, hazelnuts, eggs, milk, soy, pineapple, and strawberries.

Having two kids is definitely a lot harder than having just one, but I think that these two definitely make up for it by having so much fun together.  They do fight over toys sometimes, but they also chase each other around the house and make each other laugh constantly.
Jonah has a really funny personality.  I don't know quite how to describe it, but he is definitely very goofy and he loves to try to make people laugh.  One of his favorite things is to play with sunglasses.  He just laughs and laughs.

Harper looks like a little lady sitting in the chair with her cape on! And Jonah looks so grown up!
