Shopping & 1st Haircut

I was very fortunate that during the week my boss had handed me  giftcard to Target with the amount of $200.ooUSD just as a gift for forgetting my birthday. I’m very thankful and lucky because that’s normal for my boss to give us gifts on our birthdays or even when they’re just in a very good mood. I decided that instead of buying anything for myself that Ryu deserved to get a bunch of brand new clothes and supplies since he needs it. The giftcard that was given to me is a big help considering that its letting me catch up with a couple bills and allows me a little leeway to spend on other things. Anyway, I was excited to go shopping for Ryu since it was about that time that I bought him clothes that were a good 1-3 size bigger than him. Shucks, I even bought clothes for a 2 yr. old just so he can wear it for a while and I usually do that when I shop for him. Kids tend to grow so fast that sometimes spending almost $20.00USD for a pair of jeans or shoes can be a waste if they don’t wear it for a while. Here are a couple of the items I picked out:

Infant Boys’ Cherokee® Blue Erie Wash Denim Jeans

Infant Toddler Boys’ Genuine Kids from OshKosh Grey Cuffed Denim Pants

Infant Toddler Boys’ Almost Black Track Jacket

I can’t seem to find the other hoodies or shirts that I bought at Target on the website. Anyway, I did buy him a couple other pairs of clothing that I thought would be great since the weather was starting to change (finally). I also got him a hat that I thought was super cute, and I’ll be posting some pictures of Ryu in one of his new outfits. If there’s one thing that I love it’s absolutely dressing Ryu, he’s so cute I just love that my baby boy looks like a little toddler now! He’s all grown up. To top oft the mini shopping over the weekend.. my friend and I went to go look around the mall on Monday and each of us bought Ryu a pair of shoes! Lately, I’ve been having this shoe crave for Ryu. I think I’ll be buying him a pair of Jordan’s next week!

high tops converse.. my favorite for Ryu. ❤

When I came home with the boxes of shoes Ryu ran up to me and just yanked them from me. He was so happy about the shoes he kept smiling at me and opening the boxes. I’m not quite sure he gets that they’re gifts just yet, but he did know that they were for his feet, lol. He tried putting them on himself which was so cute. When I tried them on him he just sat down like a good boy and gave me his foot to put each shoe on.

On another note, Ryu got his first ever haircut over the weekend! I’m so glad that Ryu didn’t really give the hairdresser a problem. For the most part he sat like a really good boy in the chair and just sat there up until the end. I suppose he started to get a bit tired waiting. Here’s the Qik video that I took while he was getting his haircut. Sorry it’s not so clear, but on my phone it seemed fine.

I honestly, didn’t quite like how the hairdresser fixed his hair afterward, but it was a big change. I wasn’t used to seeing Ryu with such short hair let alone a semi-buzz cut. Romeo absolutely loved the cut! My mom dreaded it when we got home almost found her in tears because she’s so used to Ryu’s long hair. I told her hair is hair, it’ll eventually grow back. What I liked about Ryu getting his haircut was that he looks like a little boy now. I hate when others ask if Ryu’s a boy or girl, lol. At least now you can really distinguish that he’s a little boy. Here are some more pictures from the salon.

The good thing a lot of people are shocked why Ryu doesn’t cry when we put him through these first time situations. Honestly, we’re so blessed that Ryu barely cries. If he does it’s because he’s tired or finally irritated. Otherwise, he’s a very social, talkative little boy. I don’t know how that’s come about considering when he was younger I never liked anyone touching him, haha. I guess different kids, different strokes? He has his moments and I’m glad that at this point he can tolerate and make life a little bit easier for us. You’d be surprised too when he gets shots he actually just sits there up until he gets it he cries quietly. Eventually, he just knocks out. I love Ryu and I’d love him even if he was a loud little boy!

Here is Ryu’s outfit over the weekend.

    He does look like such a little boy now! I love it!! I also love shopping for clothes (especially shoes) for Sae. it’s so much fun! I, like you, buy bigger because I want her to wear it for longer. Luckily she is kind of small for her age and is wearing things a lot longer.

    I wish Sae was a bit more quiet in these types of situations. She is the opposite! It’s weird because when she was younger she was such a non crying baby. oh how things change!!
