first haircut

I finally caved and the day came for baby brother’s first haircut. Why is it so hard to say goodbye to those baby curls? I wasn’t sure how the whole haircut thing would go down with an almost one year old…it turned out to be quite the ordeal. Griffin started in his highchair with a popsicle to distract him. He loves his popsicles.

But as soon as my mom pulled out the scissors and started cutting, he was a wreck. Just imagine lots of screaming and thrashing around…not good haircutting conditions. Especially if you want to keep your ears. 🙂

So we moved outside for more distractions and I held Griffin instead.

All was well in the world again and the haircut proceeded.

He finished his popsicle so we had to run in and get him another one before he remembered that he was getting a haircut.

By this time, I was covered in hair and my arms were about to fall off so we sat Griffin on the four wheeler…popsicle number two in hand.

He made sure to let my mom when he didn’t like what was going on.

There was some serious drama going on.

But then we reminded him about his popsicle and he held still for a few more seconds.

All of a sudden he started looking like such a big boy.

Look at that cute, spiky, little boy hair!

And then he decided he was done. Haircut over. Good thing Grammy was pretty much done too.

We tried getting an “after” picture but he had had enough.

 We both survived Griffin’s first haircut. And it turns out he looks pretty cute with his big boy hair. Thanks for helping, mom! I’m sure Griffin will forget the trauma you put him through someday. 🙂
  • Andrea - Ohhhh!! Cute little sad face! I was sad too when Cruz got his first haircut, but the end result was so adorable that I got over it quickly! Griffin is such a handsome little man, love the haircut 🙂 xoxoReplyCancel

  • Michelle from Australia - You are so lucky that Griffin has a Grammy who is talented with scissors. Master E, aged nearly 6, put us through hysterics and having to be held down for his first F-O-U-R (4) Y-E-A-R-S of haircuts. And he has hair like mine that grows almost whilst you watch it so that happened at least every 6 weeks. Thankfully our hairdresser LOVES our family but who knows why she does as Master E did a very good job scaring her other customers away!!
