Another Milestone for Jacob!
For serveral months Jacob has had some HAIR on his chin, but not quite enough to shave. He got an electric razor for Christmas, but had not used it yet. He recently started getting beard hair on the side of his face. He has not wanted to shave it, and I really was not sure why. Well today he came in from school, in his ROTC uniform and said, "FEEL my face!" I took one look and realized he had shaved. He had done it all on his own this morning after I left for work. As far as I can tell, he did a good job! Where does the time go? I still remember his first hair cut and the first time he walked. Now he is shaving!
