Tacos and a Haircut

in All Posts

The title sums it up.




And a haircut.


Up first… those tacos.


I’ve been wrappin’ everything – everything! – in soft corn taco shells. Everything tastes better and infinity more delicious in taco form. Agree? Agree.



Today’s combo included:


Wild rice

Black beans


Cheddar cheese (extra extra extra sharp)




Good stuff!


And about that haircut… We wanted to fancy Henry up before his birthday. O-N-E. One!  Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. His birthday is on Wednesday. We don’t have big plans, but I am sure excited to celebrate his special day.






I swear there’s an actual difference.  I have the wispy fuzzies all over my shirt to prove it.


Happy Sunday!

    Oh, wow – I can’t believe it’s been a year already! Henry is so handsome!

  • Sarahf June 9, 2013, 5:47 pm

    Looks like he enjoyed having his haircut. He looks gorgeous, as always, but there’s definitely a difference!

    What a cutie that Henry is! I can’t believe he’s already turning one. I feel like I was just reading his birth story! 🙂

  • Kris June 9, 2013, 6:23 pm

    Aw, such a sweet little peanut!

  • Amanda @Peanut Butter and Adrenaline June 9, 2013, 6:29 pm

    Those tacos look divine! And Henry looks adorable, as always. He is getting so big!

  • Nancy June 9, 2013, 6:49 pm

    Wow. His first year just flew right by, didn’t it. What a cute lil’ dude with his new ‘do!

  • cait June 9, 2013, 6:49 pm

    how cute is he! and wow ONE years old already?! where does the time go?! I love wrapping everything in a taco shell too!

    We had our son’s hair cut last month when he was about 11 months old and goodness was it crazzzy!!! He screamed his lungs out. Henry looks so happy even in the after pic 🙂

    Its unbelievable how fast time flies, my son turned one on June 6th!! I mean really, time flies!

    Can’t believe he’s going to be a year! And in some ways it seems like he should be older because he was such an early walker. My babe, Archie, is 8 months old and is going to be an early walker too. He’s crawling, pulls himself up on everything and walks from object to object just holding on.

    Do you feel like Henry was more wreckless since he was such an early walker? That’s my only fear with Archie walking on the young side.

    • Caitlin June 9, 2013, 8:54 pm

      I guess I don’t have anything to compare it to but MAN henry took some epic, epic falls. We’re taking like, giant lumps on his head falls. I think that’s pretty normal and is going to happen no matter how careful the parents are.

      Henry is generally really brave and gung-go. He’s not a very timid person. It’s hard to know what is his personality and what’s a by-product of his early walking. I do sometimes think that his motor skills developed way before he was ‘ready’ for them, really and truly.

    Kids grow up way too quickly, don’t they?

  • julie (etsy stalkers) June 9, 2013, 9:17 pm

    He could not be any cuter! Happy birthday little man.

  • Claire @ Health Nut Claire June 9, 2013, 10:40 pm

    Mmm, those tacos! I’ve been into wraps sooo much lately!

  • Cathy June 9, 2013, 11:04 pm

    Oh my gosh! Adorable! Can not believe he’s one!!

  • Suzanne June 9, 2013, 11:06 pm

    What a cutie! Wow, one already I can hardly believe it. Hopefully Henry gets to chow down on some cake!

  • Samantha June 10, 2013, 1:48 am

    This is just blowing my mind that he is almost one. I SERIOUSLY feel like it was just last month he was born. I have 2 little boys too and it goes sooooo fast. Everytime I see someone else’s babe (on a blog I read) have a birthday I get so confused.. haha because I’m like wait, that means my kids are growing too! ha. mine are 4 & 2.. can’t believe my youngest will be THREE this year. AHH!!

  • Melanie June 10, 2013, 8:46 am

    My gosh he’s adorable!! It’s been so great being able to “see” him grow up this past year!

    Happy Early Birthday!

  • Amanda June 10, 2013, 9:33 am

    He’s totally pounding it out, so cute!!!! And I can’t believe he is already one, time is flying! It seems like he was just born…..and you were just pregnant, wow! Have fun!

  • Julie June 10, 2013, 9:49 am

    He is just TOO cute!!

  • Liz June 10, 2013, 9:52 am

    😮 My birthday is also Weds. Happy 1 to your son, happy 21 to me! 😀 they sure grow fast don’t they? 🙂

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery June 10, 2013, 12:41 pm

    I can’t believe Henry is going to be 1 already! Happy Birthday to him!

  • Jillian @ Baby Doodah! June 10, 2013, 2:21 pm


    Those tacos look AH-mazing!! I currently am attempting a 30 day vegan challenge so I will be stealing these and just dropping the cheese. Mmmm…I kinda wanna go home and make them now!

    My son is 10 months right now and my husband mentioned getting his hair cut around his first birthday and I near cried. I’m not ready to lose the wispy baby hair. lol

    Did you save any of it? I don’t know if that’s still a thing. When we were kids my mom saved a little of all of our hair from our first cut.

  • Charity June 10, 2013, 4:29 pm

    We are going for our first hair cut this week! Did you save any of it?! I want to save some of Alexander’s.

  • Elizabeth @ Positive Changes June 10, 2013, 5:35 pm

    I can’t believe that he will be one! I remember checking your blog last year waiting to see if he was going to be a boy or girl! He looks so cute with his new hair cut!

  • nikki @ mykindofhealthy June 10, 2013, 8:54 pm

    Your little one it too cute and way to big now! I love all kinds of tacos. You just can’t be mad or unhappy when you’re eating a taco 🙂

  • Heather June 10, 2013, 10:00 pm

    His haircut is adorable!!

  • KaraHadley June 11, 2013, 11:09 am

    Everything is better when you can eat it with your hands. And tacos are the best handheld food. So, logically speaking, everything is, in fact, better in taco form.

    Keep the food ideas coming Caitlin – I have NO imagination. 🙂 My son Noah’s birthday is tomorrow too – he turns 15. Happy Birthday to your little Henry!
