T's First Haircut

Today, we took T to get his very first haircut. He is 3 years and 11 months old.  While his hair isn't what I'd call long, it is increasing unruly and always looks like he just rolled out of bed.
 Here he is before.  I'm not sure what he spilled all over his sweater. He had only been wearing it for 5 minutes.  This is what his hair looked like 5 minutes after wetting and combing it.

 The side.

 The back.

 We took him to one of those kiddo cutting places.  When I asked if he wanted to get his hair cut, he practically jumped out of his skin with excitement.

 Here it is right after.  Strangely enough, cutting it made it look both curlier and thicker.

 Here he is about 15 minutes later, after it dried.

 And here, after a few hours. This is probably what it's going to look like most days.

I have to admit to getting a little sniffley as she was cutting his hair.  This was kind of the last "baby" first for him.  His hair looks good, although he looks older and different. My baby ... getting his hair cut like a big boy.

Very cute. And I see he has his mother's curls. :)

Thanks! I realize this post falls into the no-one-but-me-cares category, but since this is as close to a baby book as my boys are ever going to see, I try to put the "firsts" in. He does seem to have my curls, or rather, my dad's. Since we seem to be raising our fathers, it's appropriate.

Grandma's care too. His hair looks cute.
