Snip, Snip and Now You’re a Man.

We survived the first haircut. He was amazing, he just sat there, probably because he was given a sucker, but he sat. He was fascinated with the scissors and the clippers.
He survived and now he looks like a little man. *double sigh*
I have his little curls and hair in a ziploc baggie and I’ll make him a first haircut page for his scrapbook.
It wasn’t too terribly traumatic, but when I think about it too much, you know, the fact that we just cut the hair that he was born with! That’s the hair he had when he was in my womb, when he entered the world. *sigh*
Oh well. Here is the photographic evidence of my baby Monkey, becoming a Little Monkey Man.
