First Haircut

We took Stephen on Sunday morning to get his first real haircut!  His hair and the curls on the sides were really cute, but it was getting pretty unruly and since he's almost two, we figured it was about time.  Bill had found a barber a few weekends ago in our neighborhood and had seen a lot of kids getting their hair cut that day, so we figured we'd give it a shot!

I wasn't sure how it would go and at first it was pretty dicey (Stephen wouldn't let the poor guy near him), but thankfully another Dad in the barber shop suggested I give Stephen a video or something to watch to distract him and that worked pretty well.  He loves anything on my iPhone, so that worked pretty well while the guy was cutting his hair.  But anytime he tried to get the trimmers near Stephen's head, he freaked out.  But I think the results are pretty good.  It's really short and I definitely miss those curls, but I do know it will grow fast and next time I might have him leave it a little longer on top.  But there's no mistaking that this baby boy is now looking more and more like a little boy!!


  1. Stephen looks so grown up! Love it!

  2. Hi Lindsey,
    We were in Dayton all last week and returned home to find the pictures of Stephen waiting for us. PRICELESS is the only way to describe the first picture in the barber chair. It is so hard to believe that he is almost two years old. You and Stephen have taught us all so much in those past two years...He is one incredible Superman and you are one Super MOM.
    Love to all...
    Aunt LuAnn

  3. You're in suburbia now, Lindsey! "Cartoon Cuts" at the Dulles Town Center Mall! The elephant washes his hair, and he has big screen cartoons to stare at during the haircut. You probably won't get him to leave! So glad you like it out here.

  4. Gotta love the iphone for a quick distraction. His little curls are adorable :)
