Jasper’s First Haircut

Of course I was that crazy mamarazzi snapping a million pictures.  Perhaps a little overzealous given the conservative results – we only asked her to clean up the crazy flyaways (see the first picture for the evidence). No buzz cut for Jasper, I don’t think I could handle him coming out of the chair looking like a 10 year old!

He did really really good, the only tantrum he threw was when they tried to put the smock on him, which is why you see him smockless in these pictures. It worked out ok because she was saving the clippings to put in a little baggy they attached to a “first haircut” certificate. Personally, I find the old hair in a bag thing slightly maudlin, but I’m not going to throw it out or anything.

Now that he looks so handsome, I sort of wish we’d done it sooner!

Kimberly says:

So sweet! I tried to hold off for the longest time on James’ first haircut… but in the absence of ANY curls whatsoever, it had to be done long ago. Jasper looks precious, and I LOVE the fauxhawk!!! ;)

Ava says:

Yeah! Go Jasper (and you for surviving the first cut).
Love the fauxhawk too.
