Westin's First Haircut

A few days ago we bit the bullet (is that the saying? haha!) and trimmed Westin's hair.  I was sad about it for a few days but I'm used to it now and it makes his hair look much thicker.  Here is a before picture.  I loved the way it flipped out in the back but it was time for a trim.   

When it was wet it would look like this.  So while he was in the bathtub Cody fed him a few bites of ice cream to keep him still and I cut those three little curls off. 


This is just a side note...Cody is holding that toy up because my camera would not focus on anything because Westin is the same color as the bathtub!  haha!
Here is the after.  Much more little boy-ish instead of baby-ish but of course I still think he looks cute.  ;)

I even saved a few curls for his baby book.  :)

It's so bittersweet. He's such a cute "bigger baby," but I so miss little Spencer in his 6-12 month phase. (The phases before and after still seem to be sort of a blur. I guess that's what all those pictures are for!) =) I wish y'all lived in LR. We need a play date...

That first haircut is hard on us. :-) He looks cute and not too grown up! I like how you tied his curls together...much cuter than sticking them in an envelope.

He looks so precious Shannon! I think the haircut just makes them look so much older, instantly!

Your little guy is so adorable! I have a little boy born 3.29.10 and Westin reminds me so much of him. Their smiles and the joy on their faces is priceless. God Bless

So sweet! He does look much more boy-ish, it's amazing how much hair can impact that. Great job, he is even cuter!

He will always be a cutie pie. Did you notice those LONG eye lashes? Wow what a girl wouldn't give for those.

He looks like such a big boy now with hew new haircut! Sooooo cute! I really need to get Cannon's hair cut - it is out of control! But it breaks my heart b/c we always get compliments on it anytime we are out - everyone loves all his curls. I think I will be a bawling mess when I get it done the first time!
