So, this weekend while my sister was visiting she gave everyone a haircut. Juddy didn't want a haircut as he is "growing" his hair out to look cool. But he did get a trim. Drew enjoys having a "do" and got a "mohawk", aka spiky hair.
Jack was after Drew. I thought for sure I would have to wrestle him to get his hair trimmed. TRIMMED. I love it so long, curly and have always resisted getting the boys hair cut because they immediately look years older. I can't help it. When Jack ran in and said "I want a Mohawk like Drew!" I said, "What?" in a sad, dismayed voice. Andy and Krissy were all for it and with good reason. He looked like a mop-head most the time and wouldn't let me comb it. But despite good reason, I was hesitating, "Jack, are you sure?" But really I was feeling like I wasn't sure. But he was absolutely certain. My heart hurt....my baby's hair. It was the last sign of his babyhood!
So here is the progression of Jack's entry into being a BIG BOY forever.
Jack loves his "mohawk". HE LOVES IT!
He is touching it and making sure it is standing up on top.
He loves being a big boy and having hair that is big boy hair. The new hair cut fits him in every way.
And of course, I saved a lock of hair, that last sign of babyhood.
