First haircut

Well, we made it to 19-months before giving our baby his first haircut. I would have been fine allowing it to grow, however, it was thin, somewhat stringy, and quite often tangled. He needed a trim, and while the results may not seem dramatic to you, they are for us. He looks so much more grown up after his first haircut. Heartbreakingly grown up.

Yes. I cried, and I’m not even sure that I can enter into much introspection about this little milestone without crying again, so, here are some photos. Stylist is none other than my mom (Evan’s Mamaw.)

This is the before photo. Notice his little wings on either side?

Yes, we let him eat during his haircut. YES, he ended up picking hairs off his tray. Maybe not the best idea, but, I think the food distraction curbed the attitude. A little.

Notice the face? I can just see him wondering why Mamaw is yanking on his hair.

Umm, get off me!

No, seriously, get off me!

Love this.

By this point in the process, the food has been removed, and in it’s place, a bunch of random things within our reach.  A whisk, a mouse, a watch, and a spoon.

Finished, smiling product. This calls for an emoticon. :)

First Haircut

I told him that he looked SO HANDSOME, and he gave me this big, borderline-bashful smile.

Not a lot of hair gone, but, the tears were coming by this stage.

Hello little boy, what have you done with  my baby?

Beautiful.

Moms, did you cry when your little ones had their first haircuts?
