First Haircut

   In addition to getting a Christmas tree, we also took Caden to get his first haircut a week and a half ago! The owner of Casey's barbershop who cut Casey's hair back when he was a boy offered to give Caden his first haircut for free, which was super nice!    I debated for a long time when the was the right time to do this.  Parts of Caden's hair needed it and other parts were fine.  Finally, the front part just got too much for me, so to the barber we went.  Per the barber, Caden did pretty well.  He had to sit in his Daddy's lap, which we expected.  The barber gave him a sucker, which gave a few seconds of entertainment/distraction and slightly blue lips.  Back of his head went well, he was just curious at what was going on back there.  Front of the head was another story.  Little guy did not like being forced to sit still, so that's when the fussing started.  Thankfully, when you don't have much hair, the cuts don't take long either!  Wow, how clipping off some hairs makes a child look so much more grown up!  My baby boy looks like this little person (sniff, sniff).
   Once the final product was complete, I realized how badly this kid needed a trim.  No craziness in the front or back and no hair over the ears anymore.  The barber was sweet enough to give Caden a certificate too (of course saved a few hairs for the baby book as well!
