I can't believe we did it - but we took my son to get his first "real" haircut. I have done trims here and there, and even cut his bangs once (which was a disaster!), but never has he had a real haircut by someone who knew what they were doing. I really REALLY loved his long hair - it was laid-back and cute and matched his personality. But after taking him to swim lessons when my mom couldn't (it's their thing they do together), I finally saw the long rat tail that she kept telling me was so embarrassing. So, reluctantly, we decided that at 2 years old it was about time for a real haircut.
Waiting for his appointment with Daddy. He wanted nothing to do with any of the Dr. Seuss books in that basket and opted to read a newspaper instead....
This is my favorite pic of him in the chair.
And the best part was the sucker after.
Sure he looks cute - of course he does! - but I really REALLY really miss his long hair. Even though we said just a trim, there will be no more awesome hair days. When he wakes up in the morning his hair looks the same as when he went to bed the night before. I miss that bed head and photographing it was oh so fun! Can't wait till this cut grows out!!
(this photo was taken just a few days before the cut)
