First salon haircut!


So, little man has some hair.  Quite a bit of hair.  It drives E crazy.  Me?  I love it.  It's so soft and perfect.

However, Thad is in a wedding Friday and hubs talked me into getting in cut (and has been pushing for the last two months or, I can only hold him off so long).  So off we went to the salon this morning.  Now, Thad's had his hair cut three times before, but my mom was the one to do it - so this was his first "real" haircut.

To say I was nervous was an understatement.  It was prior to nap time, but by the time we got through waiting, we were cutting it close (lol, no pun intended).

And here he is...BEFORE.

What the heck is that??!?

He sat so.still.  It was unbelievable.  He didn't move, kick, hit, anything.  Whimpered once or twice, but made it through the whole thing like a champ.  

How stinkin' cute is he?!?
All that said...I cried.  Like a baby.  We left and he was a champ, eating his sucker from the stylist...and I was quivering.  I made it until we got home, put him down for a nap, and then I let the tears spill.


I don't freakin' know.  

He looks so old!  He was my baby - with that hair, he was still a baby.  Without it, he really is a toddler.  I can't handle it.  I miss his little baby face, surrounded by all that shaggy softness.

I'm such a wimp.

Running and playing with my new 'do at Great Grandma's.
Oh, and he's not getting another "real" haircut for a year if I can help it.  Shaggy hair, here we come! ;)


  1. Oh gosh he's SO cute though!

  2. My son needed a haircut before his first birthday, but since I can't cut hair and neither can anyone I know, to the salon we went. It was a children's salon and they gave him a certificate for being brave, a baggie with his hair in it and a picture. I amazingly didn't cry. He's had like 3 or 4 more in the past 9 months and it has gotten easier, both in behavior and my feelings about his babyhood. Thad is still adorable though!

  3. Toddlers are fun too! Embrace each phase and age as you will find that if you do, they are all a blast!

  4. Yes mam...when you do that 1st big boy haircut it is heartbreaking for Mommy. I was the same way with both my boys. Thad still looks so precious!

  5. Hi, found you through Jamie at Handling With Grace...
    Your son is adorable! :)

  6. Aww, I almost cried when my son got his first hair cut about a month ago too. He looks so much older it just made me sad to know the baby days were almost over. You made it through, now on to the next milestone!! :)

  7. Thanks guys! I still think he's cute! =) Time for toddlerhood (and hopefully another little baby!)


Thanks for the comment love!
