My hubby has been giving me lots of pressure to get Baby E’s hair cut. I don’t think I’m ready, but I really don’t want to be one of those mom’s that can’t handle the truth and take things to extremes. I just know that once those cute little curls are cut, they won’t come back. And, since this is boy #2, I also know that the first haircut changes baby into young boy because it changes appearances so much.
I’ve gotten a lot of support to not get his haircut just yet by grandma and some other moms, but hubby has started calling him “mullet boy” and “rockstar.” So, my bloggy friends, I’m putting it out there for you to help me decide. Just a fun poll. I can’t make any promises that I will for sure do what you say, but I’ll take it under consideration. You can also leave me some comments to let me know I’m crazy or be supportive 🙂
Here’s some photos of what Baby E’s hair looks like right now (or as my daughter calls them – baby mug shots):
And those curls!!! Just look at those curls!!
And, just to keep me honest. Here’s a couple of shots where I didn’t brush his hair. The “bed head” photos.
So, click on my friends and let me know what you think!
I will agree with your daughter that 2nd shot looks like a baby mug shot
P.S. Love the curls but HE NEEDS A HAIR CUT
By the way you cheated when you brushed his hair to make the curls come out, so people will vote save the curls 😉
LOL! You ARE my daughter silly!! And, there was no brush used on his hair. I just got it a little wet so the curls would get all curly. 🙂
Ok, I too struggled with getting Hayden’s first haircut. He needed one well before his first birthday, but I refused to get a baby’s hair cut before 12 months. I would tuck it behind his ears, but he always had these “wings”. Looking back at the pictures now, he looked absolutely ridiculous!! I was also the first to tease Kristy about getting James’ hair cut. He def had a mullet. So yes, poor baby boy needs his hair cut, but save some of those curls for the scrap book, and bring a tissue to the barber shop! I think when you are the Mommy, denial is strong!
Thank you for your comments! I know the denial is strong 🙂
I love the curls!
I can understand how you are torn. My vote is for the cut, the curls maybe go away but the bubble handsome boy will still be there.
