Baby Gray's 1st Haircut

• 01 March 2013



When newly married, we knew a couple with a sweet, curly-haired child--a boy with a mound of curls that his parents couldn't seem to cut.  I am embarrassed to admit that I thought it was sort of weird.  But, now that I have my own curly-haired son, I totally get it (this type of situation is typical of parenthood, yes?).  It's so hard to cut!  Especially when you hear horror stories of curls never returning once they are cut.  They are just too darn cute to risk losing...

However, the time had come for my Baby Gray to receive his first haircut.  We held out until he was almost 2 1/2 years old, if you can believe it.  Things were really getting out of control (think: Greatest American Hero, the TV show), and being mistaken for a girl was starting to happen more frequently :)  So we caved...and his sweet auntie bravely took a set of shears to his head in effort to give his locks a little more shape. Here are a few quick snapshots from the experience...can someone please stop time?!

  5. Our little James is a year younger than Gray, and we still haven't cut his hair. He isn't blessed with curls (yet!), but I just can't bear to cut his wispy little locks!

  7. My second son's hair would curl up when he was this age when he got hot and sweaty--I agonized over cutting those curls off. It doesn't curl now but that's probably because I keep it short.
