Looks like a good plan! I hope this haircut is a great experience too.

And I'm glad that his Brees jersey is still relevant despite everything else going on with the Saints...

Oh my gosh, me too! It was torture waiting for Brees to sign that contract!

Love the ears!! How much is the first haircut? How long did it take?

I just wonder if my DD will even get in the chair. She freaks with me trying to cut her finger nails. I can only imagine...hair!

I want to say it was $19. I just checked the time stamp on the pictures, and it was less than 10 minutes between the first and last pictures we took. Of course, he did not have a lot of hair to start with. The CM was fantastic with keeping him occupied. First, they covered him in stickers which kept him busy as he tried to take them off. Then she let him hold a comb and broke out a light up toy when he started getting a little tired of sitting there.

Here is the link for the post from my November TR where I shared the whole experience.

Whew! I'm all caught up and now need to jump to your DL TR to get caught up there. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your autograph book. I will have to tuck that one away for a future trip. AG has one that I made by hand for our DL trip but the perk of doing it digitally is that I can order a copy for each child.

Glad you were able to snag an appointment at Harmony. I love that tradition. AG has had two haircuts there so far. I may try and add it to our plans for either of our upcoming trips. We'll see.

Thanks! There are some really talented people on the Creative DISigns board! If you sign up for artscow.com, they frequently send out codes for free photobooks. The quality is not as nice as a site like Shutterfly, but it is definitely cheaper and looked just fine for the autograph book. I also got another book printed and only paid $18 shipping for both books. I think $9 for a photobook is pretty cheap compared to prices on other sites! That would really work if you are printing one for each child.

I'm so glad I found out about the haircuts available. I don't think I even knew where the Barber Shop was before our November trip because it's so tucked away. Now that we have discovered it, I think we will be back there a lot on future trips!

Looks like the day at DHS and EPCOT is going to be so fun!! Nice that you've kept things open depending on what you feel like.

The haircut should be great. I can't wait for aria's first haircut, I just don't know what sort of instructions i should tell the barber, and don't want her hair looking like a boy LOL which with the short hair IDK how to make it look girly...

I am really having a hard time putting any concrete plans in place because Paxton starts real daycare next week and his schedule will be totally different than what we have in place right now, especially naptime! What we have happening at home would be perfect for Disney too, so hopefully he can adjust back to it for a week in Disney without disrupting him too much? I feel like I'm in the same boat as last year! If he can't adjust his naptime, I guess we will just have to adjust our break times...

I don't know what you do for a girl haircut either? I never really thought about that! I guess that's why most little girls I know don't get their first haircut until they are a few years old. I'm sure you could tell them just to do a trim of the tips to keep it even without her looking like a boy. She will be adorable no matter what!

Aww how are you doing with the prospect of daycare on the horizon? Why won't he be able to stick with the same schedule? Aria switched up her schedule over the last 12 days since she wasn't in daycare - she dropped a feeding AND a nap (5 nursing/day 3 naps/day instead of 6 and 4!) and I made a new schedule for daycare and she is following my new schedule.

LOL! Aria's hair is growing in so funny, it is really long at top and it actually is past her eyes when brushed forward, so I guess they could trim that? IDK. It would prob be smarter to wait but I just wanted her FIRST HAIRCUT to be AT DISNEY for her FIRST TRIP! LOL

Well, of course I'm a little nervous about it, but at the same time, I know he needs the structure and to be around other kids. He is getting too bored at home! It will definitely be harder for me than it will be for him.

The schedule we follow at home is breakfast at 7:30, snack at 10, lunch at 12, nap at 1:30. Once he starts there, he will be eating breakfast at 8, lunch at 10:50, nap at 12, and snack at 2. I'm just hoping he will do okay pushing his naps back to 1:30 while we are in Disney World since he will be used to the 12:00 nap for a couple of months before the trip. It really works so much better at 1:30 for our vacation! So hopefully he will adjust okay.

That's a good idea! Even if they just trim up the front, you still get the experience and the lock of hair to save. I definitely know what you mean. Paxton had hardly any hair when we went on our trip, but I wanted him to get that first haircut done on his first Disney trip too. Now since that first cut it grows like crazy! I'm hoping I can tolerate the length until October and not cave and go get it cut here.

It is definitely true that it is much harder on the parent than the baby. Aria LOVES daycare it seems, always gives Christina big smiles and is happy at the end of the day too.

Daycare's schedule is CRAZY? Who does lunch at 10:50?? And Nap at 12? IDK whose schedule that would work for. It's really weird IMO.

In similar news, we're working on Aria's schedule because while I was home we changed it up so much. It didn't go so well yesterday and she was in a MOOD yesterday afternoon, wouldn't nap, was overtired and hungry, and it just made for a really crappy night. So I hope things settle down there, I don't know what to do about it though.

Wow I' msurprised his hair is growing so fast! October is nearly here!! Wait it out!!

We drop him off for an hour at the nursery while we go to church and he goes to an in-home daycare the two days a week I work, and he LOVES playing with "new" toys and being around other kids. So I know he will really love going to daycare 5 days a week. I will just miss him being around the house so much! I am making a long list of things I have been putting off that would be easier to do when he's not around, so hopefully that will keep me occupied. It's always so nice when they smile big and like going to the person taking care of them...then you know they are being treated well while you are away!

I agree, it's nuts! But pretty much every place we looked at had a similar schedule of lunch around 11 and nap somewhere between 12 and 12:30. I guess it is what works for them! Hopefully it will work for Paxton too...

Oh, no, I hope everything evens out! It is always so hard when the schedule starts changing around and they are grumpy. I remember when Paxton was starting to grow out of his morning nap...He took FOREVER to fall asleep to where it was hardly worth it anymore, and then he wouldn't nap in the afternoon & was miserable all night. So we dropped the morning nap, but that first week or so, it was really hard to find the right balance and have him stay awake (and happy!) until after lunch. It all worked out in the end, but that transition time can be so frustrating. Hope Aria gets her kinks worked out soon!

Day 5 Plans

Wednesday October 24th

Today will be all about DS, because we will be celebrating his 2nd birthday on Day 5! Our day will be starting early as we head to (where else?) the Magic Kingdom for some pictures in the park before it opens.



Then we will be checking in for our 8:10 am ADR at Crystal Palace!



We LOVED this breakfast last year, so I figured what better way to kick off a 2nd birthday? I can't wait for more of that delicious puffed French toast! And I'm hoping we will have another great experience with the characters like we did last year as well.







After breakfast, it will be a day in Magic Kingdom spent doing everything DS loves & can ride. I started playing around with the optimized touring plan options on Touring Plans and as I was putting in the attractions and picking things like Splash Mountain and Space Mountain with the Rider Switch option, I thought to myself that it doesn't sound like much fun for DS waiting for us to ride the big people rides. So instead, we will ONLY be seeing the shows he likes and riding the attractions without height requirements!





I'm a little torn about how to do this day, but I guess we may have to play it by ear. I'd like to spend the whole day in MK, but it will depend on how he is napping during our vacation. If we have to go back for an earlier nap and come back in the afternoon, we may do that. Or if he knocks out in the stroller for a little while, maybe we can stay until mid-afternoon instead. I'd really love to get to see the afternoon parade with him since we have never seen it, but we will have to see how it goes.

Either way, we will be back at Bonnet Creek mid-afternoon to early evening. One of us will have to run out and pick up the cake, probably from Cold Stone.



We are making tacos for dinner that night, cooking at the resort for the very first time! We have made breakfast and stuff there, but never really cooked a meal, so I'm a little excited about that for some reason. And then after dinner, we will of course sing Happy Birthday to DS and have cake & ice cream!

I think my parents are planning to go back out that night, but the three of us will stay in, maybe watch a movie or, if our request comes through, watch some fireworks off the balcony.
