just a little off the top, please!

Little man was in desperate need of a little trim...yes, this would be his FIRST haircut, but Mommy figured if she's been cutting big brothers hair for 2 years now, she might as well give this guy one too! Mommy did get a little emotional because this is such a milestone in a baby's life, but I got over it when I saw the end result...take a look!
BEFORE: DURING:

...and AFTER:
looks handsome, huh? I sure think so! He did SO good, just sat there lookin' cute! Then we spent the afternoon playing the backyard, the boys ended up shirtless and soaking wet-needless to say, it was a good afternoon too...I'll post pics soon!
I never thought I'd be cutting both boys hair, but our older son REFUSES the barbershop, it's no pretty when we attempt it, so we just invested in some nice clippers and I think I'm gettin' the hang of it TWO YEARS LATER! Ha!
I know if we had a little girl, this would NOT be an option but with boys there's not much to it, I guess!

Don't worry, even though it was a haircut by Mommy, we still took tons of pics, saved a lock of hair for the baby book...all the same hoopla that goes along with the first haircut :)

Love the haircut! You did a great job! It always makes them look so big afterwards.

Wow! You did great, He looks so handsome! Jaxon is our only one afraid of getting his hair cut. He hates the clippers. It's kind of my fault. I let the boys have long hair and none of them really had hair cuts until they were older than 2! Luckily the baby has curly hair so we won't have to cut his for a while either!

He looks adorable! You did a great job! I cut all 4 of my older boys hair as well as hubby's! It saves us a ton of money and it's really not that hard to do. If you mess up you just buzz it, it grows back...he he! I'm getting pretty good at it now though. :)

Adorable. With the girls I tried to keep their hair trimmed and bangs cut, but at one point I had to call my angel/neighbor to come over before one of my long-haired beauties had a pixie haircut! Thanks for the follow! I am following you back!
