It looks like we're sending him to boot camp
This afternoon Bill came home for lunch & we went to go get Logan's hair cut. It was getting crazy long & I wanted him to look civilized since his Aunt J would be here to visit tomorrow. I'm anticipating taking a lot of family pictures, especially since there will be someone else to hold the camera besides me!

So, we went to the same kids salon that did for his first cut. I forgot what length he had last time, so the (different) stylist decided for us. Halfway through, I was noticing how short it was & tried my best not to grimace. Logan freaked out a little more this time around, so my "Oh my God, you're cutting off all of his hair" concerns took a back seat to his tears of terror.

On the way up to the register, Bill kept saying how cute his new "summer cut" looked. "Don't worry, it will grow back. That's what I tell myself when my hair gets cut too short", Bill said trying to comfort me.

We walked out of the salon to the car. "Our child is bald. He has no hair. It looks like he's going to boot camp", I said flatly. "I know. I think it's cute", replied Bill.

I'm glad it's only hair & it will grow out.

This is a before picture of him a few weeks ago. I was trying to take a picture of the road rash on his face from him doing a face plant on the driveway. It never turned out, but you can still see his hair. It was even longer than this before it got chopped off.

His hair is way short, but this is a cute picture. He's trying to squirm away because he doesn't like to hold still for pictures anymore.

This one totally screams "boot camp"

We cut PJ's hair ourselves the first time (quite the funny story, really), and it was almost that short. I regretted it, too, even though everyone else thought it was cute. It's hard to believe how fast it grows back, though. I love, love that first picture of him with the short hair, by the way. It shows so much of his personality as well as the new 'do.

Honestly, Kristin, with those eyes and that fantastic smile, most people aren't going to notice his hair. He's so cute! :)

OMG I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

I totally want to buzz Kira's but her dad won't let me. God I cannot WAIT to have some little boys! LOL. He's wicked gorgeous with his new haircut!!!

It IS way short, but it's absolutely adorable. Really.

I shaved Drew's hair off a few weeks ago, and re-shaved it today. He loves his new summer hairdo.

I think its adorable..

Look at what a big boy he is!

Santi told us that Henry should get a buzz cut for the summer. Something about helping stimulate the hair to grow thicker? I dunno.

Logan sure looks cute, though!x

I actually love the hair! And it's probably going to grow back so fast you'll be able to laugh at his later. He looks so darn handsome!

jen said...

I think he's a doll!! And I agree with debra....those eyes and smile are what you notice first anyway!
Of course...if you put him in camo, it would be a different story! ;)

Just my opinion... but it looks way better. He looks like a handsome young man. I cannot stand it when parents let their kids hair get all crazy. My boy has hasd his hair cut twice now and Jes just buzzes it. It grows really fast like mine does, though.

You know I'm a hair nazi, but I like it better short. I think because daddymatic was scarred by being called a little girl, but anyway, hon, a little tiny bit of product in that hair and he will look like the brand-newest member of a boyband. I love it.

oh, I think it's darling! Especially the little spiky part. And Bill is right, it'll be long before you know it!
