So I tried once before to give Lincoln his first hair cut... it didn't go so well. Yes, I got it off his ears- my ultimate goal, but that's all I accomplished. Two quick snips per side. And that was with a roomful of people trying to entertain him, and one Grandad helping hold his head. After that experience, I have not been quick to get him back in the barber's chair. And he has beautiful, whispy, white-blonde locks- he was such a cute surfer-baby, why would I want to give that up? But then, last weekend, when three seperate people asked us about our baby GIRL, Larry insisted it was time for the cut!
Now he looks like such a big boy! We put him in that barber chair, and they cut all the babyness right off him!! The actual cutting went fine, thanks to fruit snacks and daddy's iPhone, and a lady with a quick cutting hand, and I just kept my focus on taking pictures, you know... just in case the waterworks were to flow! Here's a look at Lincoln's transition into boyhood, right in front of our eyes:
Big sis was just happy it wasn't her- still haven't done her first cut. I think she's actually saying "nanny nanny boo boo" here! ;)
So, maybe it was a little long and shaggy- I promise he has ears under there!
Checking out some styling products for his long mane...
It looked even better wet, stretching a full 2 inches over his collar! Doesn't he look thrilled about all this?
Here we go... lets move quick, people!
He stayed pretty entertained with his fruit snacks for a little while...
although he kept trying to bat away her hand when she pulled his hair up!
That's when we brought out Carl on daddy's iPhone. What did we do without iPhones??
And here's our Big Boy, all freshly cut and so grown up looking! (And looking a little stunned at what just happened!)
"Whadda ya think, mom- am I ready for GQ??"
