First haircut

Little Mister turned 1 on wednesday the 19th; and it was clearly time for the FIRST haircut. I struggled with this for the simple reason that my little baby is an official toddler. The soft sweet baby face is transfered to a much more grown-up big boy look with an attitude of independence.

I saved every lock of hair, tied half of it with a light blue satin ribbon and the rest in a little clear baggie for his scrapbook. At first Little Mister was just annoyed at being in a chair and Mama touching his head, then he was upset with a few screams, and when Mama still did not heed; he went for an all out meltdown. The job got done, a quick little bath, and then to bed.

I was struck with sadness when indeed my little baby face was no longer, he was fast asleep in his crib and there was my "big boy"!

I also can't believe how fast they are growing up. It's a good thing you're getting the hair cutting of little boys down pat because you're going to have to do my little guy when it's time. Katrina
