First Haircut!

It was finally time. My little guy was looking a bit redneck with his baby mullet. After 18 months, we finally got his hair cut.

Technically, Christian's surgeon at Hopkins gave him his first haircut just before his surgery. But, that didn't count. His hair was getting so long that his little curls would sweat up the back, and his wispies on the side of his head were rubbing on the microphone of his processor.

We took him to this cute place by our house that shows Elmo for the kids, and is totally kid friendly (you can get your hair washed by an elephant!). Next time we go, I'm keeping the CI much longer and giving him a tour of the place. It was such a rich language opportunity. Christian did fantastic, even though we had to take his CI off during the cut. He looks like such a big boy now!

Haircuts make them look so much older! I love the amenities your area has for kids. We have to take Matt to the local Mastercuts and do the giggle-and-cut method, with him weaving and bobbing as the poor lady tries to get his hair even!

He is such a doll! Looks like he did pretty well for his first cut! My oldest used to scream his head off, so we finally reverted to the ol' mom & dad cut ... daddy did the clippers and I'd blend in the top.
