One more look at the baby curls . . . I waited as long as I could before taking Charlie for his first haircut. I know from experience that the first haircut changes a little guy’s appearance from baby to little boy in a flash. I brought along my camera to record the moment. I figured maybe if I was busy snapping pictures, I’d be too distracted to cry in public.
We went to this great kids’ haircut place called Sharkey’s where Charlie got to sit in a little blue car and watch cartoons. You’d think that would make a little boy really happy, wouldn’t you? Charlie was not impressed. This is what he looked like for most of his clipping session:
The “toons” would hold his interest for a minute or two before he was back to crying and trying to climb out of the chair.
We both survived, though, and I’m happy to say that in spite of Charlie’s tears, mama managed to keep it together. All finished!
Holding on to mama for dear life . . . “Don’t put me back in that thing again!”
We had a “Big Boy Charlie” photo session this morning. I totally think he looks absolutely adorable, but it’s hard to believe that the picture at the top of this post was taken two days before these.
Look! The tongue still works!
Little boys grow up so fast, don’t they? (Oh, and a little aside from the subject of this post: there’s a bit of a sneak peek of a pattern that I’m working on in these pictures. Still a few things to tweak, but I’m planning to have it ready for my testers next week!)
