Bye Bye Baby Mullet


So today was a big day for me. I mean I guess it was a big day for Lincoln, but, seriously, he could have cared less. I, on the other hand, had a rough time of it. My baby, my last baby, my last baby's first hair cut. What could be more emotional than that? :) OK. I know I'm weird. But I just can't help myself. My babies all had a ton of hair at an early age which led to the boys needing haircuts just after turning a year old (probably should have done it sooner...but THE CURLS!) and Emma not getting her first cut until she was 4- with hair down to her rear! In my eyes, it's one of the bigger stepping stones. It's even more emotional to me than that first tooth. To me it represents moving from babyhood to toddlerhood. (SIGH)
"The Mullet" the night before.
We took him into Bend to this super cute kids salon called Sprouts.
...and so it begins.

Havin' the time of his life! And who wouldn't when you get to sit in a car in the sky?!
Done with the top and sides. He's looking at her as if to say, "Don't even think about touchin' the curls." (sigh) ...THE CURLS...
By the way...this lady was amazing! I've never seen him wiggle more and she kept cutting at lightening speed. Definitely an award is needed.
He knows he's cool.
No more mullet! Bye Bye Prineville:)
Yep. He's a big boy . I think I'll go cry now.

What a sweet boy. I love that little boy hairline on the back of his head. I just love that part...but you'll notice my boys are going long, you can come tousle our curls. :) Will you be back for any length of time any more. :(
