Baker's 1st Haircut!

This is and always will be so emotional for me..the 1st haircut! For me, it is saying good-bye to my baby and then just like that...a toddler is sitting right in front of me! It had to happen though, Baker had been mistaken for a little girl one to many times. He has such cute was curly at the bottom (when dry), but when it was wet and I combed it it was all the way to his shoulder. Are you kidding me? Where did all this hair come from? It felt like it grew over night!
It was haircut day at my moms house for all the boys. (We are so blessed to have my mom cut hair!) Jacob...then Dave...and then Baker. I was very hesitant about the whole thing. He is only 15 months and I will be saying good-bye to his baby hair, the hair he was born with. (I actually don't know if that is true, his baby hair probably all fell out at some point. But I like to think of it as true!) I talked it over with Dave, who really didn't care or have an opinion, but talked it through with me none the less and we decided it was a go! WHY IS THIS SO HARD FOR ME???? So we did it! Baker Bear now looks all grown up and has a big boy haircut!

That night when we got home I looked at pictures of his hair before and I started to wish I hadn't done it...he really did look cute with his curls! BUT...he will not be mistaken for a girl anymore. (I never quite understand that...he is dressed like a boy, acts like a boy...really does he look like a girl?) And he REALLY does look cute with his haircut!

I know..I am a little silly! I just need a little girl whose hair I will not have to cut :)

yeah i am already thinking about A's first haircut...probably on his first birthday. if it was up to Luke, he would get one tomorrow--Luke thinks he needs a trim on the little hairs behind his ears! Baker looks super cute though! :)

I love his haircut! 15 months--Goodness! James would have looked like cousin It if we had waited that long. :) He got his first cut the week after his birthday!
