Eli had his first hair cut today. He was born with a good deal of dark hair but over the past year it has lightened a lot. He has his daddy’s hair with loose curls. Today he went to the barber for his first hair cut.
Before Pictures – If it wasn’t for the hair getting in his eyes I would have probably waited longer for his first cut.
We thought that Eli might have to sit on Joseph’s lap but the barber had a nice little booster thing (not really a seat but rather a shelf like thing that fixed to the normal chair) that he was very happy to sit on.
He was a little curious about the sound the razor was making and turned at first to see what was going on.
But after about ten seconds he got the hang of things and sat so nicely while his sweet curls feel to the floor.
When the barber moved to the other side, I was a little shocked by how short his hair was and had to hold my breath a little; reminding myself it is only hair and that it will grow back.
He sat so nice the whole time.
We told him that he was looking nice and he got excited and started ooh and awwing during the finishing touches.
My baby is no more. He is now a toddler with a big boy hair cut.
Eli even wanted to style it himself.
The only thing he didn’t like was being brushed off a the end.
After – He looks a lot like one of Joseph’s toddler photos here.
It is going to take me a bit to get us to the shorter hair but I think Eli is pretty happy with his new look.
