The Big Trim

It happened!

My baby got his first hair cut! It's about time! He's three and a half!

Poor guy, he was so scared of it! When we would talk about getting his hair cut he'd always say no, he didn't want too. And there was the time he burst into tears at the very mention of it!

He wasn't excited about it but seemed more open to the idea after I explained to him that it wouldn't hurt and that his hair would grow back.

"My hair will grow back, yeah?" he said.

So Saturday we took him to get The Big Trim.

Look at the worried look in his eyes...

He was so good though. He didn't say a word or fight at all.

It took longer to brush out all the tangles than to give him the cut.

The results?

A much neater looking boy...
A boy who insisted on wearing his sunglasses in the shopping center as he took a victory ride with Noddy.

favorite line: "'My hair will grow back, yeah?' he said." I LOVE that UK expression...everything followed by a "yeah?" Sooo sweet!

And he looks fab (or should I say brill?) in those glasses :)

Darling Boy!

His hair looks great, yeah? :)

Looking forward to seeing you sometime this next year. I think a trip to PA during your summer break would be fantastic, don't you? :)

THe look in his eyes makes me want to just cover him in kisses, poor thing.

He looked so cute with those curls, but now with the golden locks all cut, he's become a dude. Loved his pose with the shades on...and more so, loved that scared cum curious look while getting the haircut! God bless him!
