I took Alex to get his 1st haircut today. He was starting to get a mullet or something going on back there, so it was time. The 1st haircut is one of those moments when you know your baby is growing up. I really don't want him to get big so fast, but it happens so I try to go along with it, since really what else can you do? He can't stay a baby forever.
He did not want to sit in the chair by himself, he even started crying, so I held him and rubbed his back till he was calm. She began cutting the back of his hair and playing peek-a-boo with him, and before long he was OK with it. Well, we did give him a sucker to distract him, which helped until he dropped it in the hair(he also had it stuck to my shirt and his forehead at one point in time), but we were almost finished by then. He sat up and started looking around and even smiling at the lady cutting his hair. He looks like such a big boy now!
When he was finished we gave him a new sucker and he loved it! He waved bye-bye about 5 times before we left. I think he'll be ready to go back next time. Maybe not for the haircut, but definitely for the sucker.
