Time for a haircut

Austin finally got his first haircut. Cue tears.

His curls were just gorgeous and it broke my heart to cut those pretty blonde locks. Daddy cut them but still. All that hair was making his head hot. He would sweat and his hair would get nasty and tangled. He hated having it brushed. He LOVED smearing his food in his hair. So it was clear it was time to a cut.

Austin was fine with the clippers at first. He had the iPhone and was watching Mickey Mouse, we had M&Ms for him.

Then he wasn't. He lost it. We had to hold him, which I'm sure scared him even more and made it worse. It took Conrad, me and my Mom to hold him still. Poor thing.

After the cut and a bath to rinse off all those itchy hairs, it was time for some pictures. Look at my handsome little boy. This cut makes him look so grown up. I didn't like it for the first week. I didn't like the way he looked. I missed my baby boy. I missed those curly blonde locks. Now that I'm used to it, I like it. I think he likes it too. He will rub his head and it's gotta feel so much better.

I feel like I've blinked and he's in toddlerhood. I mean, look at this guy!
