Jonathan took the boys to get their haircut yesterday. For a while, I had been cutting their hair at home with the clippers. Sometimes it looked sorta almost okay, sometimes not, but I was slowly getting the hang of it. Someone (Jonathan) dropped my clippers and broke them, so we've been forced to shell out the 25 bucks it costs to take them to the professional.
Yesterday when they got home they looked so big and grown-up, and I got nostalgic about their very first haircuts.
Ryan is our first child, and when he got his first haircut it was the main event of the weekend. Jonathan's parents and brother were in town, and all five of us hovered around Ryan watching him go from baby to toddler before our very eyes. Since Papaw offered to foot the bill, we took him to a place where he got to sit in this race car and watch a "Wiggles" video while his hair was being cut.
As for Dylan's first haircut, he got the "second child treatment", and on a whim when I couldn't take his crazy puffy hair anymore, I took him down the street to the local Prostyles. At least I remembered to grab my camera on our way out the door. Life just gets a little more crazy the more kids you have!
And here they are today, climbing trees (with my help), and not wanting me to tell them they look cute. "NO Mommy, not cute! We look COOL!"
Ryan and Dylan...you look so COOL with your new haircuts!!
