time to shave

The other day Alec looked at Mason and told him he needed to shave.  Mason asked me if he could and I said, "Sure, go ahead."  Alec told him he would show him how. I grabbed my iPhone and followed them to take some pics, of course! 


All of you that have those little babies and toddlers, believe me, this happens faster than you think. They were two little boys playing with cars and trucks on the floor not too long ago and now they're shaving...






I love these photos even if they are kind of poor quality and I'm thankful that they are such good brothers to each other. 

They were taken with my old iPhone 3GS. I upgraded to the new iPhone last weekend.  The camera is much better on the 4S so maybe I'll start using it more. For those of you wondering if the upgrade is worth it, I must say the voice recognition is incredible! I may never type a text message again! I love how you can ask her to remind you about things throughout the day.  And you can ask her just about anything. If she doesn't know the answer, she'll send you to a google search to find out. And she actually understands you!

  1. I have 2 little boys, 8 & 5, & I can't imagine how strange it will be watching them shave for the first time one day! I hope my boys stay as close as your's are, as they are best friends & best brothers right now. :)

  2. As a mother of boys, this is just so cute to me! And you are right, I was shocked when the shaving started at 13, instead of 16 like I was expecting. :)

  6. Giggle, giggle, being the mom of a 14 year old boy I'm loving this. Mine is so camera shy though that I don't know if he would let me do this or not . . . but I think I'll have a little while as there are no signs of needing to shave just yet! Thanks for sharing this Deb it's just so darn cute!!

  7. The years pass by way to quickly for me.
    It's great to see your children when they get on so well and want to look out for each other like your boys.
    My 3 girls are aged between 16 and 22 and I love it when they are so close - I almost feel left out lol. We must have done something right don't you think.

  11. All grown up! I remember my brother wanting to shave at 4. And when I started shaving, I remember walking outside and feeling so grown up.

  12. I agree that they grow up way too fast. My 12 year old son is getting closer to that first real shave...
    I also upgraded my iPhone (from the 3G to the 4s) and I am LOVING the new camera and it is blazing fast.
    Awesome pictures and story.

  13. As the mom of a 26 year old son I can attest to how fast the time flies! Haha...can't believe they let you post the photos on your blog tho. Which begs me to ask...do they know???? :)

    My sister just got the 4GS, she loves it. I have the 4 and have no time for new gadgets that can speak back to me (-:

  16. Those are such sweet pictures! Sometimes just capturing the moment, regardless of the quality of camera, is what's important. Beautiful!

  24. Aw... I cried when my son shaved for the first time. These pics were so sweet and heartwarming. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, this is so sweet of your older son to offer to teach his brother. I think I would be tearing up a bit when the time comes for J to do this. :)

  26. It's good to see them so close. Touching too. My son is 14. May have to get him a shaver soon.

  28. They are not old enough as the age i've imaged to shave, friendly indeed, and i don't have an iphone, so i don't quite understand why so many people are so crazy about it???? Tell me reason, if you may?

    ReplyDelete

    such sweet photos, deb!

    have a great day!

  30. How lovely that they shared this together - and that your older son initiated it - it must have been a slightly bittersweet but proud moment for you.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Very cute! My two boys, now 30 and 27, are still close. :)

    ReplyDelete

  33. I love this! It makes me wish my 14yr old wasn't an only child! Great pics and ones they (and you) will look back on and cherish!

    ReplyDelete

    That is cool about the phone, but kind of creepy at the same time. ;)
