Stupid Hairs

I wish I could have frozen Spencer’s hair in time a few months ago when his hair was perfect.

July 2010

I love it here. A little shaggy, but not covering his eyes. It still looked ok in the beginning of August.

Early August 2010

By the end of August it was looking a little shaggy, but still passable. I started going through my pictures to see if I could find the tipping point. It might be September 13th:

Or possibly September 18th:

By September 25th, it was definitely too long:

And that is about when the comments started. At first they were infrequent. Someone would brush the hair out of his eyes murmur something. I would answer that we needed it long for his Halloween costume. Then the comments got more and more frequent and by last week, someone would say something every single time I took him out. Even my sister said something. The cashier at the grocery store said he looked like a sheepdog. They may have a point:

November 2010

So, we got him a haircut. I did a little facebook poll, got some local suggestions and looked on the internet. Of the two options, one had an incredibly scary website, complete with purple comic sans on a lavender background and the other choice had no website at all.  We went with the second place.(Which I would link, but apparently it lives in the 1900s because, again, no website.)

We made the right choice too. She was fabulous with Spencer. And fast. His curls hit the floor before I saw it coming. It turned out pretty cute, but I might be biased.

It has taken some getting used to. I went to get him up after his nap and I was startled by the little boy looking back at me.

Looking like a toddler for sure!

    Awwww, he looks adorable! I hit the first haircut milestone a few weeks ago, and Mommy agrees: I went from baby to toddler in about 5 minutes!

    WOW! He looks so grown up with the haircut! I cut O’s bangs the other day because I was noticing that he was constantly tilting his head back so he could see under them. Poor kid. I think I might be able to get away with the mom-trims for a while, because he really doesn’t have a LOT of hair…just hair that hangs in his eyes. I hope anyway. I’m totally NOT READY for a real haircut.

    I was going to just do a bang trim, but the back of his hair was getting long too. I thought that might be a little much for me to attempt. And I was convinced I would poke him in the eye with the scissors.

    Ah!! He’s adorable! Came over from Twitter….amazing how a haircut makes a baby into a little boy…

    Thanks for coming by! I was shocked about how different a single haircut could make him look.


  4. Could he be cuter? I can see why you had such a hard time cutting his hair.

    The instant growing up moments scare the bejebus out of me.
