On Sunday, we gave Jack his very first haircut! It was a bittersweet time for me – I knew we needed to rid him of his mullet but I somehow felt personally responsible for the growth of those beautiful hairs! I was also sad because his hair wasn’t very curly that day – sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t, and it was one of those dry days where his hair just looked static-y and wispy. There was a very slight curl, and I made sure to save it in a plastic bag. It looks so delicate and baby-like!
I decided I’d post a couple of recent pre-haircut photos so you could see the ginormous difference here!
And now, for the haircut!
Even though it’s been over two days, I still can’t believe how old he looks. It’s like he grew up in 15 minutes – before his haircut, he was a baby, and after his haircut…he became a little boy! I guess it’s especially weird because this week, I bought him a trainer seat for the potty (though we won’t officially begin potty training for a few months). It’s even more strange for me when I lay him down for a nap on the mattress in his room. He hasn’t fully graduated to a bed, but when I put him in there, it just reminds me that he’s only getting older! Of course, I know he’s still so little…I’m just amazed at how quickly time has flown by. In only a few months, he’ll be a big brother! Wow!
