Brooks' First "Real" Haircut

We took Brooks last Tuesday to get his first "real" haircut. I say "real" because I've cut it myself twice now. But his hair is filling in so much and had just taken on a whole new level, I decided I wasn't going to try and cut it again. I also didn't care for the way it turned out around his ears the last time I cut it so that was another determining factor. I didn't know what to expect, I figured he wouldn't like it, but we took things to bribe him with in hopes that he'd do fine. Yea, he wasn't interested in any of that and hated every minute of it. It was really funny! I took him to the guy that cuts my hair and you can tell he's cut a few kids hair before because he kept on cutting with Brooks squirming and screaming all over the place and it turned out perfect. I was quite impressed. So here are some pictures from the first cut!

I asked him on the way there if he was going to sit in the chair like a big boy and he said yea, I then asked him if was going to get a big boy haircut and he said yea. He was so happy when we got there too, I figured it would go well! But not so much! :)


Getting started...

He was being SUCH A BIG BOY up until this point...when he decided to put the towel on his shoulders to keep the hair off of him, he did not like that at all!

Doing a little better here!

And that didn't last too long...

Almost done...

Now all done and looking like such a big boy (insert mommy wanting to cry here because I'm not ready for either of them to grow up or look grown up for that matter)!!

A few more of him after we got home!

And we can't leave out Emma Bean even though she had no desire to go with us to get his hair cut!

I think Brooks' hair cut turned out looking very cute:) Too bad he hated having it done so much, but I think that's a pretty common reaction with little kids and haircuts. Soon enough he'll look forward to haircuts, because he knows candy is involved (at least that's how it is with my two).
