Brother went first....and wasn't afraid in the least.
Can we just say HANDSOME? Seriously, how cute is this little man? He looks so much older already. I know his haircut was pretty necessary, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I'm a little sad that the hair he was born with is gone. When I nursed him to sleep for his nap today, it was weird to run my hands through his hair and have it be gone. And I miss the little flipped out curls over his ears too...but it will all grow back. Right? Please tell me it will grow back!
And now for Nugget's turn...
Like she's Cousin It or something, I only took a before picture from behind, because that was the area needing attention. It was very scraggly and stringy towards the bottom.
This is where I almost cried. Talk about being born with this hair...sister's had this hair for 3 years and 2 months. I have touched it, washed it, brushed it and braided it too many times to count. This was the first little spout of hair that I scooped up into the most adorable pony tail atop her head, and squeezed into the two tiniest pigtails ever. Micki was going to straighten it first to ensure an even cut, but I asked her not too, because I wanted to save those precious baby locks just as they were.
Of course I couldn't let this milestone pass without saving the locks for their baby books...
Nugget's is the blond, Brother's is the brown.
The kids did awesome, and just to toot my own horn, Micki said Brother was the easiest first hair cut she's ever given to a baby. Awww. We just love her. She's been doing my hair for about five years now. After I went to her the first time back when she worked at Cole's, I came home happy and pleased, which never happens. Cutting my hair always seems to be a traumatic experience. But Micki gets me and my thick, wavy hair. When I came home after that first hair cut, Nick said 'You're not crying. I don't care what she costs, you'll never go to anyone else!' So true. And I am so happy for Micki that she is FINALLY opening her own salon in her home! Yay! I know she's gonna do great and be so successful. If you're in my area and want her info, let me know.
