Gabe's haircut

Yesterday I took Gabe in for a much needed hair cut. As soon as the girl called us up, I told her that this was his second ever hair cut and that the first one went well because he was given a sucker, so as long as she could give him a sucker then we would probably be fine. To which she replied "Oh we are all out". Fabulous I thought. I fully expected to leave the salon with a screaming child who had a half haircut.

She had me sit down and covered me with the cape and then sat Gabe on my lap and did the same to him. Much to my surprise, my 16 month old ANGEL sat on my lap the entire time and did not move a muscle. I couldn't believe how good he was. I was so proud.

Though the hair dresser was unable to follow my basic instructions like - 1. I want to keep the curls and 2. Leave an inch and a half all over I was just so blown away by how good my little guy was. His hair is way too short and I am so sad his curls are gone but I know that it will all be back in no time.

Below are some bad pictures I took with my phone.

Cheese!

ahhhhh, sad day, no curls. Good thing his smile makes up for the missing locks.

Cheesy smile. He looks like a little man with his haircut. What a cutie.

He's so cute! His curls were darling. Good news is his hair will grow out again.

Wow, that sure looks like an inch and a half all around. . .NOT. She sure butchered him. Oh well, he is still adorable!! And boys hair grows back pretty fast, just ask Brian when I butcher his hair!!

Oh no the curls are gone. How sad. Once Matea vacuumed Marisa's hair up- she had curls- and they had to cut her hair to get it out, and they never came back. But some of her kids have curly hair. I'm sure Gabe's will grow back though.
