First Haircut

 

A couple weeks ago, Wyatt got his first haircut!  I was a little resistant, because I love his fuzzy hair.  But it was getting pretty long, and it was just time. 

I decided to bite the bullet and do it before Christmas.  I knew I was going to do it myself, and I wanted to give it plenty of time to grow back out before his 1-year pictures, just in case I messed it up.

Here we are before we started.

And that was the last smile for a while.  This is pretty much how the whole thing went: 

Wyatt was not a fan of the whole process.

He did hold still long enough here and there for me to actually cut his hair.  Though it’s a little choppy in the back as evidence of his squirming.

And the finished product!  I was really happy with the way it turned out.  And it still has that fuzzy look, just in a more subdued way.

I love that last picture. He is such a handsome little guy.

When did your kids get their first haircut?

Looks great! I need to give Alex is first haircut too but I'm so nervous that he'll be too squirmy.

What a sweet boy! We haven't given Jonas a haircut yet... no hair to cut. But I've never been brave enough to cut Marco's hair on my own... I always spend the money.
But you did GREAT!

So handsome! Little Bug was pretty much bald for a really long time, so I see her first haircut in the very VERY distant future.

Awesome work Callie!

Henry JUST started getting hair but he has a few long strands on the sides. I don't want to cut them though. John and I decided we would wait until he was 1 year old to cut his hair. IF he even needs a cut by then! I love Wyatt's cute fluffy hair!

You did a great job!!! He looks so clean cut! I had Savannah's hair trimmed in the back a couple months ago. She had this long tail back there that needed to go!! :)

Aw you did great, Callie. He looks adorable. :)

You are so brave for doing it yourself! We took Wylie to a salon and they did a much better job than I would have done, plus they had the perfect chair to entertain him.

Thank you for the congratulations :)

Preeeecious!!! First hair cuts are such a big deal, they look so BIG after one. I trimmed Sprig's mullet "wings" just two little tips off the back, and she somehow looks so much bigger. Maybe it's just all in my head. :P But Wyatt does look like a little man, so cute!

it's always sad when they get their first haircut because it makes them look about 20 years older. don't ya think?
