Charlie's First Haircut

On Friday, the whole family took Charlie to Cookie Cutters (one of those places that will cut your child's hair in a plane), for his first haircut! At birth, he lost almost all of his hair on the top and back of his head, but not the sides. So the hair behind his ears was a good two or three inches longer than everything else. We waited to cut it though because that hair had the most beautiful little curl to it. But it was time.

Eli helped sit him in a little tractor and he loved it. They had cartoon movies for the kids to watch, though Charlie still doesn't really care much about that. My Charlie Bear did such a great job. He only started to cry at the very end when I got closer to him so I could get a good shot of his new cut. He just wanted to get down and look around. He looks so handsome and big now!


In the beginning...

On the tractor.

Tina cut his hair so carefully and gently. It was neat to watch.

Bubbles!

Getting a manly shave.

Just a bit off the top...

Voila! My new little manny.
Who now looks even more like his Grandpa. :)
Minus the expression of course.

Abby, I don't know which Grandpa you are referring to, but I just found a pic of Paw Paw Don at about that same age that looks identical to Charlie. I will try to get it up in a week or so. Charlie is such a big boy! And, what a cute idea for a little kids hair salon!

Oh my gosh...look how big he is...and those expressions!!!

I bet he DOES look older. I love those big blue eyes....

He will always be handsome, Abby...always and forever...you can see it already...he was born cute and he'll just remain that way....you've got your hands full....

I can't wait to see him....walking, talking, jabbering, playing ball...the whole 9 yards...and all of it with his new haircut....

*sigh*
