There is something about giving a baby a haircut that suddenly makes them look older. With both boys I dreaded cutting their hair in an attempt to keep the baby look for as long as I could. Jacob was 15 months old when he got his first real haircut, I finally gave in after people started mistaking him for a girl! Since he was born, Dylan has had little trims around the front and his ears to keep it out of his face, but not a real haircut. He has more hair than Jacob did at this age and it is darker. It was getting long in the back and it was starting to do the side flip thing. So I gave in and decided it was time to cut his hair. A few days later my mom came to visit, after breakfast one morning we took Dylan’s highchair outside and armed with a spray bottle, comb, scissors, things to keep Dylan distracted and of course me with the camera. Dylan got his first haircut.
Not to be left out of the fun, Jacob wanted to help, so he decided he would be in charge of the spray bottle.
And by helping in his mind, means spraying and saturating anything and everything with water, including grandma.
Then he moved onto Dylan’s feet.
Grandma had her work cut out for her trying to cut a squirmy baby’s hair who was getting his feet tickled by all the sprays from the water bottle.
Slowly Dylan started looking a little less babyish and more little boyish.
Thank you grandma for doing a great job!
