First Haircut

I'll admit it.  I was dreading this first. However, we made it 23 months before I thought it was time for Lincoln's first haircut.  As much as I adore his little curls, it was getting a bit long in the back & matted.  It sometimes looked like my parents Golden Retriever :) 

Who would want to cut these gorgeous curls?!

It was a tough decision, but I decided it needed to be done.  My aunt is a hairdresser, and she cuts my hair.  I think she's the only one I'd trust right now with a pair of scissors near my sweet boys head.
Lincoln sat on his Grammy's lap, and my aunt trimmed away.  She even gave him his very own comb to hold while she cut.  I wasn't sure how he would do...I mean, he's a toddler!  Toddlers are wiggly little worms!! sweet boy was a trooper.  He didn't cry once, & was delighted with "helping" with his comb :)
 He even tried to style his Grammy's hair :)
 So now, I have a big boy.  Isn't he handsome? :)
I'm hopeful that his curls will remain.  Afterall, his Momma has some seriously curly hair!  If his hair gets wet, it instantly curls, so I'm optimistic :) 

Another "first" to check off the list.  My sweet boy is growing up too fast!!


  1. I totally understand not wanting to cut off his baby curls... but I think he looks darling with his new haircut! :)

  2. he looks very handsome with his haircut! i felt exactly the same as you about my son's first haircut....and would have waited longer if my hubster wouldn't have pushed it. lol i LOVE the curls! ;)

  3. He looks like such a big boy now

  4. Yay Lincoln! He looks very grown up. :)
