Let me just say, I LOVE Ryder's curly hair! And I've loved watching it grow and I loved it long. But I had been thinking lately that I would cut his hair soon (his first official haircut) since his hair was starting to get harder to style and getting in his face, BUT like I said, I LOVE his long curly hair! So I was waiting until I felt ready to let go...Besides, it will grow back anyway! I wanted him to be cooler for the rest of the summer too.
I woke up this morning, and immediately told Paul, "I'm going to go get Ryder's haircut today." And he kind of laughed and was like, "Okay." It just felt like time. And I do REALLY miss his curls already, and it's shorter than I thought I would have it cut for the first time, but his faux hawk is back! Here are the before and after pics of his first official haircut!
Oh, and he did awesome! We went to Great Clips and he sat on a booster seat on the chair all by himself. I wish I had taken my camera inside, because the cape was penguins and surf boards--way cute! He was really pretty still and curious during it, but didn't put up a fight. Phew! ;) The lady who cut his hair gave me a few of the pieces she cut with a card saying today was his first haircut. Plus, he got a sucker afterward and devoured it, so I think he'll enjoy future haircuts. :)
