Big Changes

Last week was one of those weeks that felt like a month. Here's a quick recap....

Parker went to his first "friend" birthday party. Happy 2nd Birthday, Brenden!
Avery slept through it (of course!)
I got my first case of mastitis. Not fun. But Parker got a fun day at Grandma's house with his cousin Sadie.
Joe rubbed shoulders with the Mayor in the grand opening of his new branch. Pretty exciting. Working a 60-hour week? Not so much.
Avery's first smiles...not yet on film.
After 4 years with just this....
We finally upgraded to this...
After almost 28 years of long, I decided to go short...

Wow, big changes! I love your hair! Its fun to do once in a while. And if you hate it, it always grows back! Good luck with everything, it sounds like all is going pretty well at your house, except the mastitis-that is not fun!

Grandma Hand said...

Oh my gosh Robyn!!! I had that only they called it something else and that is not any fun. Did you run a fever? Avery is so beautiful and Parker is like a regular little boy and having fun. It seems you are handling things pretty darn good. Love all of you.

OK, so I'll admit I really like it! (You know how I get when you girls cut your hair.) It looks really shiny and healthy. You'll have fun with a new style. No more pony tails though.

Sounds like a pretty eventful week. Was Joe's big open house a success? He looks pretty official cutting the ribbon.

Your new couches look really nice! You'll have fun decorating around them. What a deal!

ROBYN!!! I LOVE your hair!! Avery is just such an adorabole little thing! Parker is still the cutest little boy! I really like your couches (I have my moms that look just like them, starting to get kinda weird that we always end up with the same stuff)! You guys are the cutest little family, I could have never imagined us at this age, could you?

Jamie Parke said...

Your hair is so cute!!! I love it. Looks like you are ready for a nice uneventful week now. Mastitis is a killer, I couldn't believe how sick I felt. I feel your pain.

Amber said...

You are my inspiration. My hair has been long for about 20 years and I think about chopping almost every day. Yours looks darling!

Rachelle said...

Love the couches, love your hair even more. Hooray for short hair!

Maylene said...

Oooh how fun! I love big changes like that. Cute hair and nice couches! I have been thinking about cutting my hair shorter but I still haven't got enough guts yet to do it. Oh well. Hope you have a much more relaxing week.

Erin said...

Your hair cut is absolutely adorable! I love the style on you. But then again, any style looks good on a pretty face like yours!

Your couches are so pretty. It's so fun to have new furniture!

Parker is really cute. Sadie LOVES to play with him. She keeps asking when she can see "Karper" again.

And congrats to Joe on the new location. Tell him thanks for the yummy treats and the citi-letter opener. (very cool Joe!)

Next time I will take you up on your offer to hold Avery...She's such a doll...Like her mom!!!

Love you guys lots!

Michael said...

Well, I can't say that I have any sympathy for you and your mastitis (like every other girl that left a message), but I'm sure that wasn't any fun. Good luck with that, and may it never happen again. Nice couches. They were a great place to nap today!

Christie said...

I am in pain just thinking about your mastitis. Ugh. So sorry.

But love the couches and haircut. Both are very, very cute!

The Pants Family said...

Crazy!!!! I can't believe that you and Kimberly both cut your hair, so cute, I am not that brave ( I used to be in high school) Love the new couches.

Gretchen said...

Fun changes! I just chopped my hair off too..10 inches, about 2 weeks ago! Crazy! Let's get together soon!

Susie said...

Okay, I didn't fall off the planet- read my blog and you'll see what's been up! I'm the worst- she is the cutest baby ever!! I'm coming up for Chel's shower and stuff-she lives in Saratoga Springs now and you won't believe who moved in right next door to her Saturday- Chad Grant!! I'll make Mandy take me to see you so I can see the cute babies in person!
