Cooper's first haircut

You might have noticed that Cooper has quite a bit of hair. You can see in his 10 month pictures that it was getting a little out of control. See how long it was over his ears? And, it was starting to stick up everywhere, and there wasn't much taming it.

So, we decided it was time to do it. I made an appointment for him to get his haircut just about a week after his 10 month birthday.

I debated whether to go to a guy that some of my friends use for their little ones, or to use the stylist that Lee and I use. The guy my friends use only does children, so I thought maybe he would do a better job, but we love our stylist and (I think) she really wanted to cut his hair, so in the end, I decided to go to her.

Here are some before pictures. Please excuse my appearance.

See how it was curling up at the ends? I thought he looked so cute/funny when it started doing that :)

At the salon:
She had a little cape for him!

Of course, he wanted to put it in his mouth!

He was SO good during the haircut! I don't have pictures though, because it took me and Lee to get him to sit still enough. He kept jerking his head back and forth, because he was curious about the scissors and what she was doing, but he was quiet and didn't freak out.

She cut around one of his ears first, and just with that little bit, I was shocked at how much older he already looked! :( But, I have to say, he did look very handsome afterwards! :)

The front:

My big, sweet boy!

*And, yes, he loves his pacifiers. I have to say, that before I had him, that was my thing, you know? My kid will never have a pacifier. Hahaha. Now that I'm a mama, I know waaayyy better than to say never :)

He looks like a little boy!! :( Sad face because I want them to stay babies!!! BG's hair is getting a bit mulletish at the moment but I can't bring myself to cut it yet!!! I'm afraid she'll look to big!!

And I didn't think I'd be a paci fan either, but I love it. It soothes her and I don't care!!

He looks adorable!! She did a great job. And it's crazy how much older little boys look when they get their first haircut!! (Also--thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. You are too nice!)

He is such a cutie! He looks great both ways, but his new hair cut makes him look like such a big boy :-)
