He took it very seriously...at first. He kept looking at the stylist like "Excuse me. What do you think you are doing?"
I was explaining to her how I wanted her to cut his hair and she says "you want a typical little boy haircut." Yup, that's right. :)
This is about the time that he decided that he didn't need to sit still anymore.
So he decided to spin around and sit backwards for a while.
I stepped in and tried helping him hold still so she could hopefully make straight cuts (she didn't do a perfect job but under the circumstances I can't blame her!).
He decided he needed a few Mommy kisses. :)
Some kissing, spinning around and general fidgeting later and we discovered a little boy under all that hair! I tried getting a decent picture once we left the salon but Reuben doesn't like to hold still for pictures if he doesn't have to. So these two are as good as I got.
Its quite amazing how cutting off a few strands of hair can make a person look so different. My little baby no longer looks like a little baby! He's a little boy now. Turning 1 year old helped solidify that tearful realization. But more on that later...
