When do you know it’s time for baby’s first hair cut?
It’s no secret – my boy has many great attributes. Yes, he is clever. Yes, he is funny. Yes, he is observant. Yes, he is adventurous, Yes, he is sweet, determined, opinionated, outgoing, and fast-learning.
But he is also incredibly good looking… Those looong eye lashes, his plump little lips, his squishy cheeks, his faint dimples just under the eyes that are there whether he’s flashing that million-dollar grin or not, and those deep, dark eyes. (Gush mama, gush!)
And the hair. Ohhhhhh, the hair!
Levi has always had great hair. Since he was tiny it just grew in looking “right”. No strange bald spots, no disproportionate patches, no long, out-of-place bits. He just got really, really lucky in the hair department.
Which brings us to now… one of my very favorite things. These locks:
But I have to admit that perhaps it’s beginning to get a little out-of-control. He’s forever peeking through long strands of bags hanging down to mid-cheek, and I’m forever pushing them out of his eyes. If only they would stayed swooped to the side like they are in this photo… (I’d be lying to say I’m not totally smitten with his emo swoop.)
Problem is, they don’t. And since the idea of plastering my small child with copious amounts of hairspray isn’t appealing… I’m thinking it might be time for a little trim.
Oh, add to that the fact that three times in the last two days strangers have referred to him as a “she” despite his overalls, train shirt, brown sweater, and blue sneakers.
I’m beginning to think it might be time to say good-bye to my little Bieber Baby…
For the record, as soon as the camera comes out… some of the moves disappear. (Typical toddler, right??) If only I could have a way to capture our unfilmed moments of dance hilarity! But this take was pretty good… even complete with a pretty sweet ending. (Um, did I just made up the word “unfilmed”?)
Dear friends, what do you think? Time to clean-up this kid’s hair? Or should I just pull out the Aqua Net? (Kidding. I don’t use aerosol. heh heh.) When did you first cut your baby’s hair?
