Three Haircuts

Yes, that's right ladies and gentlemen, we've had 3 haircuts around here this past week.  2 were intentional, 1 was not.

The babies hair has been getting longer and longer and scragglier and scragglier and several people, including my husband, were bugging me to get it cut. While I agreed that they definitely needed a haircut, I just couldn't bring myself to doing it. The boys have these beautiful curls that I just didn't want to part with.

We cut Seth's hair when he was 10 months old and he just never looked like a baby again, so in an attempt to keep them babies as long as possible, I decided we wouldn't do it until they were a year old.

Well, as you know from my last post, that deadline came and went a week and a half ago with no haircut.   After some gentle reminders from friends and family, I called my hairstylist, but she was booked solid this weekend. Knowing me and how I might have second thoughts if I didn't get it done now, G.G. (Grandma Gwen) called her stylist and got us in. Pat did a great job and the boys look really cute, but I do miss the curls.

 G.G. volunteered to hold the boys while they got their cuts

 "G.G., you're so funny!"
 "Mommy let me play with her sunglasses. Wow, she must really have wanted me to sit still."
 "Ok, I'm sooo done with this now."
 "How do I look?"

Pat is a twin mommy herself. Her twins are 33 now.
 I often wonder what the babies think when they look in the mirror.  If you spent all day everyday looking at someone who looks just like you, 
at what point will you realize that the reflection in the mirror is you?

 Those are some cute boys!

So, those were two of the three haircuts in our family last week.    

Seth got a haircut too!

Unfortunately, it was from a fellow three year old at preschool.  
He and a good friend decided to give each other haircuts. 

Hmmm... not quite as cute.  Oh well. It'll grow in.


  1. They all 3 are the most adorable happy boys!!!

  2. Oh SO SO SO cute! I want to eat them up!! I think they look even more like Seth now with their hair shorter!
