the 1st hair cut

I loved Jackson's curls. Really loved them but they were getting slightly girly in the back so on a whim I decided to give his hair a bit of a trim before Zac got home. I stuck Jackson in the sink and went to work. He did really well while I trimmed with the scissors. He played in the water and chewed on all of our tooth brushes. (Anne was kind enough to take pictures) The only problem came when I turned on the buzzers. He totally freaked out. He screamed the entire time. I was so sad for him but of course had to finish the job. I had just about finished up and was trimming the bottom when Jackson jerked his head toward me...yup...big chunk out of his hair! Oops. As Zac said later when he got home, "Give it 2 weeks and it will grow out." Thank goodness hair does that.

Anne took some very interesting shots.

This was before I started the buzzers. Anne didn't like his screaming so she left the room...thus no more pictures.

He was still pretty traumatized at this point and didn't want to smile. Luckily you can't see the big chunk out of his hair. And yes it did grow back. I miss his curls. Sigh...

Be glad you didn't take a chunk out of his ear! I've done that before - well not a chunk, but a nick. He looks cute either way, curls or no curls. He does look very handsome with his hair cut.

He's adorable! You were brave to try his haircut alone. Happy New Year to you guys!
