Ryan's First Haircut

I took Ryan to get his first haircut today. We went to a place called Kidz Cuts. It had cars and things that the kids sit in to distract them as they get their hair cut.
He was okay in the chair (tractor), until the lady put the cape on him.

Needless to say he started crying--especially when I had to hold his head still (an impossible feat) while she got near the ears. He was arching and moving so much and only strapped in the chair with a rinky dink strap. I was trying to keep him in the chair and hold his head at the same time. She even offered him a lollipop but he wanted nothing to do with it. I'm not counting that as his first lollipop because he didn't even take one lick. LOL. I don't know how hairdressers do it with kids like that. He is pretty butchered. The ears are not even at all. I'm thinking I might try to even it out a bit but I'm no hairdresser. I hope his hair grows quickly. These are the only pictures I got of it because I had to hold his head. Lesson learned--take someone with you to take pictures of the first cut.

Here he is after the ordeal. He looks like a big boy now. Phew, I'm glad that is over. Not looking forward to next time.

Oh yeah, they gave me some locks and he got his first certificate of merit. LOL

OH! Poor little guy!
He looks so sweet with his new Big guy cut though. :)
ps the last time Will got his hair cut, he screamed & screamed. It was AWFUL! He's due for another cut and I am so not looking forward to it. UGH!
