Tyler's First Haircut

Tyler had been needing a haircut for a little while, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. The first haircut is another one of those rites of passage from baby to big boy. 

His long wispies behind both ears had gotten so long that I could have made pigtails with them. As cute as that may have been, I don't think I wanted to subject my son to that.

And to top it off, the hair never stayed down. It always stuck straight out or up, giving him a crazy, mad scientist look. 

It was finally time to give in and acknowledge that he is indeed growing up.   

He didn't know what to think of that funny thing in Daddy's hand that made the buzzing sound.

"Are you sure this is safe, Mama?"

All was ok when Daddy started being silly.

Leighton cuts all the boys' hair. The older ones cooperate a little bit better than the baby though. 

A little bit.

Looking down.

Sitting down.

Back to standing up.

And to think, Leighton didn't even cut off an ear!

He is so patient with them.

Silly big brother was a good helper in getting him to look the other way.

All done! 

Goodbye, sweet, little curl in the back. Hello, little stud.

Who is that handsome boy???

He kept feeling his ears. I'm sure they felt different once all that tickly hair was gone. 

Don't ya know, getting your haircut is hard work.

Leighton didn't touch any of the hair on top, just the back and sides. Just think how tired he'll be when he has to sit through a full haircut!
