The other night we took Luke to get his first haircut. He's 10 months old and has had a full head of dark brown hair since birth. It was getting a little shaggy so we took him into Cool Cuts for Kids to trim it up. He did really well! No tears! He wasn't real sure about the blue cape at first but he didn't mind it after while. His favorite part was sitting in the fire engine! I'm amazed that anybody could cut a 10 month old's hair and relieved I didn't have to do it. He was so squirmy! And she even used the trimmers at the end! The new cut looks really cute on him and makes him look older- more like a little boy.

after- (she was almost done at this point)

Afterwards we went over to our friend Kameron's apartment to get Lily's haircut. Kameron is an amazing stylist whose been cutting our hair for a while, and she gave Lily some layers all over and a long bang. Lily was shy at first, but as soon as Kameron pulled out the "princess" cape and the reeses pieces Lily was in heaven. She was so cute about it! Before she went to bed that night, she asked Josh, "Daddy, will my haircut get messed up when I sleep?" Oh my, she is ALL girl! Wish I had a picture of the after, but I'm sure I'll have some to post soon.

*update: I just showed Lily this post so she could see her picture. She turned to me and asked, "Mom, is my haircut still there?" :)

Natalie - your children are adorable - It's amazing how much older a hair cut makes them both look! Lily's reactions were precious. Hope you are doing well. Tell your family "hi"!
