Anatomy of a baby's first haircut

It's tradition in my family that little ones don't get their first haircuts until their first birthdays, but we had to break with tradition in Will's case. He was born with so much hair, and even after the normal balding phase around 3-4 months, he kept most of it and then grew even more hair. It was getting quite long and he was looking rather wild, so when my parents were down for a visit a couple weekends ago, Nana gave Puppy his first haircut!

"Uh, did I do something wrong?"

"Mommy, what's Nana doing back there?"

"I don't think I like the sound of those scissors!"

"As long as you're at it, Nana, I'm a bit shaggy on the left side..."

Almost done!

Assisting Nana by holding the comb

"I know it. I'm a stud."

You have such a good baby!!! It looks like he sat still and was a perfect angel the whole time. And what a beautiful baby!!! My sisters produce such lovely children. Uncle Chees just walked in and said, "You can see his face now!" It wasn't that bad, but he definitely needed a trim. I am sad to see the Hasidic Jew lock gone, though. I hope you kept some of it for his baby book.
