Hair's The Word





Before: see those little curls in the back?




After: No more curls; he's a big boy now...


First haircut: it's done
Little curls cut away
Now he's a big boy


I took these photos last Saturday when Liam got his first haircut. I was nervous and weepy but I managed to get through. He, on the other hand, did swimmingly. No tears, only a few little unhappy faces.

Another first come and gone.

Sounds like a much more peaceful experience than my oldest daughter's first haircut!!! What a cutie!

I just adore that serious look on his face. So he did good? No tears? Awww, what a bittersweet milestone.

From a baby to a little old man in one hair cut.

Aww, what a sweetie. Love his beautiful face and I agree with MG no tears! My kids all bawled through their first one. Well, the first two, my baby hasn't gotten one yet. Love those milestones.

No tears is great. We had two years of tears. Way to go, Liam. And, way to handle it well, Toni.

Missy said...

awww, isn't it amazing how much older they look after that haircut??? My little guy is already needing another one, crazy how fast that hair grows. :)

Kristi said...

We stressed so much about both of our boys' first haircuts and they breezed right through. They look so much more grown up afterward.

Oh he is just sweet. Curls or not. It is a milestone. Amazing how hard those little things are for us mommies...

Great PSF!

Jacki said...

Oh my gosh, he is so cute!!

Alexandria said...

Aw! He's beautiful!

I remember when my son had his first hair cut. He was a perfect angel. Didn't move at all. Now, since then ... lol. Up until a couple of months ago, he has dreaded going to the hairdressers. We haven't taken our daughter yet.

Kathryn said...

Aww. The first haircut is always so sad. But wow! What a cutie!!!

Susie said...

This blog is beautiful; I love the stars! I love your haiku. Good for you big boy now!

Autumn said...

So cute!

That photo brings back memories. My youngest son had the curls in back too. I nearly cried when I had them cut. Precious firsts!

Working mum said...

Bless! He does look grown up now.

hotmamabeads said...

He is darling! and you were lucky to have a major first with no tears!

Don Mills Diva said...

I love his expression in the last photo - like he's contemplating the mysteries of life now that he's a grownup!

Kellan said...

Oh, what a darling little man - he's so cute. Hope you saved some of those curls.

Have a good weekend, Toni - see you soon - Kellan

What a cutie! It's only hard on the mom. He looks like such a little man. :D

He might be a big boy now but he has the most adorable red cheeks. :) I'm glad the experience wasn't too traumatic.

Michelle Potter said...

Aw, what a big boy! I remember the first time cutting off one of my son's curls, such a heartbreak!

Can you believe, with my middle daughter, I put it off until she was almost 3? (Youngest daughter STILL hasn't had her first haircut.)

Cute kid! Firsts are harder on the mom than the child.

maggie's mind said...

Aw, so very adorable! Such a great way to do a haiku, too.

Dana said...

I remember when my little one got his first haircut, I was having a hard time. He's a cutie.

Robyn said...

How did you ever let go of the curls?

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

So glad he did well. Did you get to keep his locks of hair? What a handsome grown up boy he is now!
