First Haircut

It was time...his hair was so long and unruly on top and in the front! We needed to get his hair cut! The lady who cuts John hair, Peri, agreed to cut Colt's and he was so good while she did it. And it looks soooooo much better now!

Have you ever heard it's bad luck to cut their hair before their first birthday? I hadn't, but I don't care! He NEEDED a hair cut. We did not cut any off in the back, so the rat tail remains in-tact!

And, yes, I did save some of his hair...though I'm not sure what to do with it. His baby book (which I have so not started) doesn't have a place for it. But I guess I'll put it in an envelope and keep it in the book anyway. I was not sentimental about this day AT ALL, hope that doesn't make me a bad mom! Maybe if he'd had curls or something I would have been sad...I was just ready!

Doesn't he look so grown up?!

He does look grown up!

As I've said, Chayton had to have his hair cut well before his 1-year birthday.

Very Cute! Carson was 5 months, don't feel bad. I put my kids hair in a little clear container that I found in the scrapbooking section of Hobby Lobby. It even has some adhesive to stick it on a page.

I'm totally with you on the early hair-cuts. Karis had her hair cut at about 5 months. The back of it was all ratty and not very pretty. So I chopped it and have had no bad luck since. I think you're in the clear!
