First Haircut

I put this day off for as long as I could. People have started to wonder whether Diego is a girl or a boy, even whe he's in all blue, so I figured it was time for a haircut. It made me sad, because I feel like it was part of his sweet charm, but the poor little guy has had to push his hair out of his eyes all the time and I was starting to feel guilty for holding on to the hair. This is our "before" picture. Yes, I'm taking it of us in the mirror. See the one curl on the top? That's what we saved.


This is our "during" picture. He did amazing for an 8 month old baby. I love the expression on his face here!

And here he is in the "after" picture. He looks so cute! And now he looks more like a little boy, and less like a baby. Exactly what I was afraid of, but I have my pictures and a lock of his hair to remember and I have to keep telling myself that hair does grow back.

He looks so cute!!! What a big boy! I can't believe you cut it before he turned one! But it will be nice not to have to brush it out of his face!
And I have to tell you I bought him that onsie for Christmas. I got a size 12-18 months, so it will look like he's worn it forever!!!

Oh, this is a hard move. I like that you left it a little long though and didn't give him a butch.

Mom and I are looking at your top picture of him at the pumpkin patch...and we're just admiring at how great that picture is! He is so handsome!!

Oh Meghan - I know how hard this had to have been for you... But he looks precious!!!

It's amazing how a hair cut can make them look so much older. He's such a cute little boy!

He is totally handsome!!! The first of many haircuts! I think Jag was about 8 months when he had his first...but he went to the barber...not the beauty parlor! He goes to the beauty parlor now!! Hank was like 2 before he had his first cut cuz he was a long haired hippy child and Olivia didn't have any hair to cut!
You are right ~ he looks like such a "big" little boy now!

Oh, first haircuts are a huge step! I can understand why you did cut his hair (but sure wouldn't think badly of you if you chose to wait on that "milestone"!) He looks super cute...both ways!!

First haircuts are hard, but (sigh) necessary. That last picture of him with his new haircut is so cute!!!

And he's not the only one who looks cute in those pictures. (I love your hair!)
