Blake's first haircut

So I gave Blake his first hair cut a couple weeks ago. His hair is starting to come in a bit fuller and it was hanging over his ears and it was driving me crazy. So I thought well why not give him his first hair cut? Get him use to it early rather than later, So that maybe it won't be such a pain in the ass later down the road. Also I luckily went to cosmetology school so my skills are pretty decent in this department. I no longer do hair. But I cut my husband and now sons hair. Saves a little money here and there...

So serious

So we strapped him in his high chair. One of his favorite places to be and I turned the clippers on and let him inspect the tool that was going to be on his head. Fortunately he didn't mind it, He just wanted to play with them. SO away I went, Cutting his hair while dad distracted him. Also taking photos. Then as the hair started to fall on the tray in front of him, He went after the stands of hair and thought it was now lunch time. It only took a few minutes. I was even able to whip out the blending comb to make sure there wasn't any lines. As for I only wanted to cut the back and sides and get his hair off the ears.

Turned out great. I took a bit of hair to save and put in his baby book. Some people find that weird but I think its sweet. We defiantly were not the parents that saved the umbilical cord. But his first hair cut and maybe first tooth I don't know yet..
