Bye bye baby look

We (meaning me) decided it was time to try cutting Zeke's hair ourselves. While I A.D.O.R.E. my hair girl, I just can't keep paying for a 2 year old to get his hair cut and also I am thinking about the fact that I will soon have two boys getting haircuts...
ANYWAY, I borrowed clippers from our neighbors. We set Zeke up with a popsicle and movie. I really thought we were prepared for success... I am pretty excited that my camera died so you can't actually witness the horror of how much he hated it. Let's just say it ended with Spence holding his hands and head so I could finish. Was it worth it? Spence says no, I say yes. Afterwards I got him bathed and calmed and he was fine. Spence doesn't think so, but he hasn't held him down at the dentisit either...


The set up

After his bath (see he was already happy)

The next day I asked him if I could take a picture of his hair cut,
he said "mama cut hair, CHEESE!"

as long as you don't ever cut it the way I cut Rik's when Christopher worried the stew out of me... while cutting Rik's hair.. well, you remember the results.. or maybe you don't.. Rik does.. he says that's why he grew his hair long.. ahahah..
I love it.. I think he looks so much more a "big boy" than a little boy now.. of course, I think he's pretty stinkin cute come sun or rain! LOL
