I knew it was long overdue for Brady's first hair cut. He's had this mullet going on for a couple months now. And I hesitated on cutting it until the spring. But on a spur of the moment decision, based on the fact that Lukas needed his hair cut too, I thought we might as well do Brady's. He didn't do too bad.
We brought the boys to Nic's father-in-law, Dave's barber shop. Dave was great with him! Brady was a little upset during the whole time, but really didn't move around, so Dave got a pretty decent cut. Brady just sat there, lightly sobbing, and chewing on his binkie while Dave cut away. And yes I did save a small piece of his hair for the baby book. :)
And now the finished style:
He really has seemed to age about 6 months after this cut. Its way cute on him though.
I bathed the boys the other night and after the bath I told Lukas to go sit by the fire to keep warm, while I get their pajamas gathered up. It was such a priceless moment to see, when I came into the living room, Brady had sat down right next to Lukas.
I love that he was looking up at his big brother, almost waiting for a reaction to his lovin'.
I mentioned earlier about my bees, and showed the fabric that I have chosen. I decided to document the step by step pics that I took for this block. You can find the original tutorial HERE.
I made all the size cuts that were needed for this block. And then separated them out into 12 piles, one for each member. Making sure to keep a variety in each block.
Here are the fabrics that I will be doing in my test block:
After the necessary cuts are made to each fabric, the building of the block begins.
The First layer:
The Second layer:
The Fourth layer:
Once I receive all the blocks back, they will be cut down the middle, both horizontally and vertically. I will then take those four squares and mix them up with the other blocks. The end result will be assembled like these quilts:

So here are the piles of fabric ready to be sent out!!
Can't wait to see them pop up in our Flickr group!
