They're Gone!! All Gone!!

Today we did something we've been putting off for a long time. We took Austin in for his first "real" haircut(I had given him a little trim months ago).

We had put it off because not only were his red curls so charming, but he hates to be touched, especially his hair or ears.

We were nervous about going, expecting tears and a big battle.

Here is his before:

While he didn't have tears, he was terrified of those clippers and clung to me like glue;

After they took the length off just the sides, he looked like the fellow from the 80's band Simply Red. I was half tempted to leave it like that...

After a while, he started to settle a little and let go of me, of course the Dora the Explorer playing on the TV in front of him helped a little.

The finished look, and he's one happy camper:

His uncles aren't entirely pleased as they loved his long curly hair, but of course they didn't have to try and brush is daily either.
A big day for my little guy!
