First Haircut

I’ve been delaying this for months…

Joe got his first haircut.  Wah!  I would go back and forth saying, “He needs a haircut… no he doesn’t… yes he does… no wait, he doesn’t!”  The truth was that I just didn’t want to have him lose those baby curls and go from “baby” to “little boy”.

There I am, nervously hovering in the background while my sister takes photos of the process.

“What is this guy doing?”

The whole process took less than 7 minutes, start to finish.  Joe was such a grown-up little guy throughout the whole thing – no tears or fussing.  It was one of those things where we just happened to be passing a barber shop, I saw the “no appointments needed” sign, got a bit of a prodding from my sister after my 3rd time of going past the window and saying, “Well, I don’t know…”, and finally just bit the bullet.  I’m glad that I did.

I did think that it was pretty special that his Auntie V could be there for his first haircut.  It’s also kind of unique to say that he had it done in the UK.  Such a global traveler!  I made sure to grab a few curls for his baby book.  I plan on putting them in there alongside the receipt from the barber 🙂
