It's a sad day, folks...

Today we are taking Charlie to (gulp) get a haircut. I am partly excited, but mostly bummed. I know it's just hair, but his sweet little curls are so precious and so much a part of him. It's just getting so hot, and we will be in the pool soon, and I know it will be more compfortable if it's shorter. Not to mention easier on me, with my preg-saustion. Adam is getting a haircut at the same time, so hopefully it will go over better than the braids. And don't worry, this post is just a teaser...I will be back to add pictures this afternoon!

...And we're back!
The haircut went great! Charlie was a little anxious at first, thanks to the braiding trauma we went through last month. But Daddy went first, and Charlie was a big boy the whole time. He charmed everyone that was in the shop. I had a knot in my stomach as Liz started to cut, but it really looks cute, and it will be much easier this summer. He had SO much hair!

Having a relaxing shampoo...



Here we go!





Checking out the lost curls (he called them caterpillars!)


Alllll done!


Can you handle the handsome??



We are apparently having a big day! My mom just surprised us and showed up to take Charlie with her for the night. I know ALL moms hate when thier kids leave for a night, but I figured I might as well let him go, and go on a date with my hubby. You know, if I have to...Happy weekend, all!!

When Z's hair gets too long, it starts forming locks. I love it but it's a lot to deal with right now. Don't worry! As Charlie gets older you and he will LOVE what you can do with his curls. And in response to your last post, it's a good thing I don't live near you. Otherwise I would walk behind you with a big stick and strike anyone in the knees that said ANYthing insensitive to you. And I suspect I would be sued.

I know our Gap model baby will be adorable with any haircut. WE ARE HAVING DINNER SOON! I misses you.

I had the same pangs when we cut Max's hair and now we are SO glad we did (he is too, he hated having his hair combed through. OUCH!)

What a champ! He looks lovely, though I'm sure it must have been hard for you to say goodbye to those luscious curls.

He is SO cute!! Biruk's hair is getting long and crazy. I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
