Yes, we chopped my sweet baby’s beautiful red locks today. I hate, hate, hate how old they look after their first hair cuts. It just isn’t fair!
I had to get some before pics before we left to remember his soft, shaggy, unruely baby hair. But first I had to prove he could “walk” because I made up this stupid rule that my babies have to be walking before they can have their first haircut. It seems fair because “babies” shouldn’t have a haircut and only “babies” can’t walk, right? Ya, I know stupid rule. HOWEVER, I am ever the rule follower so we just altered our definition of walking and “helped” him keep his balance a little. It works! After all, he DID take his first steps last week – so technically he walked on his own. Why do I do this to myself?
There he is – walking! See!
I did say it was shaggy, right?
Brother always finds his way into pictures.
Aww! So gorgeous! How can I dare cut it?
Jack was nice enough to go first. He didn’t have much to cut – just needed his over-grown buzz cleaned up a tad. Hoping for it to grow back in the Fall.
Now Colin’s ready to race – er – get his hair cut!
Oh bless me! Where did those baby curls go???
I didn’t realize that when you took your baby in to get his hair cut you actually left with an entirely different child!! This happened with Jack too. I still think about him. Oh well.
Two big boys with big boys cuts.
Thank the LORD for GROWING boys!
