1st Haircut

Well, we did, we finally did it. I cracked under the pressure from my husband and just got tired of people mistaking my baby boy for a little girl...so we did it...we took Austin to get his 1st haircut yesterday evening.

It was an interesting experience mixed with so many emotions and I'd be lying if I said I didn't start to cry a little when I saw that baby fine hair falling to the floor. It was like watching him grow up right before my very eyes. Somehow my little baby transformed into a little boy right there in that chair and it made me proud and sad all at the same time.

Austin had no idea what was going on the entire time and just sat there and enjoyed the dum-dum lollipop in his mouth. I mean he REALLY enjoyed that thing. No, seriously...Elmo could have been dancing and singing right in front of him and he wouldn't have even noticed. What a lifesaver!

So, fifteen minutes later the whole thing was over and we took home a sticky, hairy, slobbery little boy and the remainder of his baby mullet in a tiny plastic baggy.

The before...
1st snip!
Mommy's tears were flowing at this sight...
Distractions!
"Hey, where did you come from?"
Admiring the new look!
