My little shorn sheep...


Dan has been wanting to give David a haircut for weeks. I have been against the whole idea as we have never cut Davie's hair before...and let's face it, my kids have never had an abundance of hair. Well, needless to say, Dan won out and David ended up outside naked in the highchair getting his hair cut.

As you can see, David was thrilled about the whole process. I ended up holding his hand the whole time, but he really did hold still very well, and there were no tears. I call this a win.

Things were going fine until Dan decided to pull out the electric clippers. Then Davie's hair really started to come off. I had no idea he had that much hair until I saw it on the ground around his chair. There go his little curls.

The end result is not fabulous. I think we are going to try a few touchups this weekend. Nevertheless, one more milestone down. David is ready to escape no matter how funny he looks.

He looks like a little boy now! Way to go Dan with the haircut. With Davy's energy, concussions, etc. it takes a brave soul to attempt such a feat.

He looks super cute! I think Dan did a great job. I with you though on not cutting hair--I don't want to cut Annie's for a long time--at least she's a girl!

Wow! I can't believe that is his first haircut! Anders has had a few...the first one was professional and spendy, the rest have been mediocre and free. I'll take free any day!

one of my worst fears as a kid was having to go in the backyard and sit in the huge metal chair why my dad cut my hair. just the sight of that chair made me cringe... then the sight of my hair in the mirror post-hair cut was even more devestating... hopefully dan has better skills then most dads (like me)

I totally remember when we asked Dan to give Greg a haircut...does Dan still cut his own hair? It is time to say by to the baby wispies...we will be doing that with Char in a few months..I am sure..he looks cute!
