Brecken's 1st Official Haircut


Here is my beautiful baby's flowing golden locks before Friday morning. And...


And here he is during the traumatic event. I told the nice lady, "I really love his hair long, he just needs a trim." (This was our first time having a professional cut instead of me fighting him w/ the scissors.) The nice lady whipped out her scissors of death and began snipping. "Oh, it's just not laying right. He has wings. I'm going to take a little more off." And voila! All of his curls are gone and I am very sad. He looks like a big boy, not a baby, and I miss his flowing golden locks.

On an unrelated note, for those who appreciated my chocolate chip flax-seed cookies Fri night, I actually use ground flax meal rather than the unground seed.

And on another note, Brecken has learned how to climb out of his crib. Which he does with startling regularity. I just keep putting him back in it until he falls asleep, which he always eventually does, but dang! That's a lot of work.

Well I hate to break it to you, but he is a boy now and not really a baby any more. I am having to come to the same conclusion with Alex right now too. It stinks. He looks like a very cute little man though!

I had to trim my 1-year-old's hair when it started getting too long in the back and would get ratted when he sat in his car seat or in the crib. I think I actually cried when I cut that first golden lock of's a sad day when our babies grow up!!

He is adorable! I like his hair a little longer too though. I'm sure it will grow back really fast!

Flaxseed? No thanks, I prefer my chocolate chip cookies the way they are supposed to be: CHOCOLATE AND SUGAR.

what a bummer about the haircut. I bet it grows back really fast. I also wanted to tell you that I have two crib tents that I am not using right now.. I know it sounds terrible, but if you see them put together it's not so scary they are mesh and you can see out just fine they just can't get out. It's awesome. Let me know if you want to try it out.
