Connor's 1st Hair Cut 2/20/14

With Mom in town and the Mister taking a couple days to spend with us and visit, we thought this would be a great chance to get Connor's hair cut for the very first time. Now, let me be the first to admit that his hair cut was way overdue. It should have been cut months ago but I wanted my Mom to experience a first with him so we waited until she arrived.

Here is CJ before. He had hair for days and bangs that covered his eyes so badly that I clipped them back with a barrette daily.  He has had this curly baby mullet for a good 4 months but in the last 5 weeks or so, it's really gotten bad so a hair cut was a must.
During the haircut itself, Connor did amazing! We were up in the air about how he would behave since this was such a (scary) first. We've heard horror stories but in Connor fashion, he rocked it. Linda, his stylist, worked so quickly that within 15 minutes, we went from having a little guy with sweet curls to a big man with a fresh grown up look. 




Never in a million years would have I guessed that Connor would have done so well and enjoyed himself. The only time he acted up was when he had to stop playing with the train table and leave. After his haircut, we grabbed lunch and I got these cute iPhone shots of C at lunch, celebrating his first successful haircut. Our little guy is getting growing up so fast. Before you know it, he'll be off to school, thriving in his independence.


Happy Friday!
Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Love how they have kiddie cut salons now.. My oldest cried and cried when she got her first cut but the last two were great. I waited until my second child was three! Now they are ALL obsessed with going to the salon.. even if it is a non kid salon! I see me going broke with these three!

  8. Of course he behaved well during his first haircut. He has the most even-tempered, kids-first, amazing parents EVER raising him. I love this kid.

  9. So fresh and so clean! What a handsome little boy you have. And, I'm so jealous that he was so awesome during the cut. M is a nightmare every time we try to cut his hair.
    Give C a big squeeze from M and me!
