The Haircut

I've heard horror stories about first haircuts, but I have to say, Jack did fantastic! He was excited to see that the stylist was a pretty blond pregnant girl, and immediately started called her 'Emmy' (which is what he calls my pregnant blond sister).

We decided that the best bet was to have him sit in Matt's lap, and to give him a lollipop.  The boy would do anything for a lollipop! Both boys wore a cape, and away we went!
As you can see by his eyebrows, he was a little concerned about what was buzzing near his ear, but since there was no pain (and he still had his pop) he decided not to worry about it.
The stylist said that for having such light, fine hair, he sure has a lot of it! She buzzed both his neck and his sideburns! He definitely gets that from Daddy!
Here we had switched to a juice box to occupy his attention, and the stylist is just finishing up and vacuuming off the cut hairs.

And the finished product? Are you ready for this?  I'm not sure you are...
Well hello handsome!!
Mommy is awfully proud of you!

I was so impressed by his good behavior, I forgot to be sad that he was growing up, at least until she gave us a little certificate acclaiming his progression from babyhood to childhood with this, his first haircut, complete with his name, date, and a little clump of his baby hair attached to it.

A pregnant momma just can't handle that sort of thing!

  6. That is oh so too cute - but I must admit, I was desperately distracted by the ADORABLE buddah belly he is sporting in his profile belly shot.
