My heart broke a little. . .

before. . .


during. . .


and after. 


ollie's first haircut was traumatic for both of us.  

his curls are gone, but his sweet personality remains.

one question. do you think they'll grow back?

  8. He is such a beautiful little boy. At my house 3 boys had curls grow back, & 1 boy did not. You have a very good fighting chance!

  9. aww. Was his hair really ready to be cut? It seems you still had time! LOL. I don't think those curls are coming back. You don't seem to have curly haired kids! Still cute as a button, but too soon, too soon!! LOL...

  10. So sweet! And I think suddenly he looks so much more like Owen. Crazy what a haircut can do to change a little guys face. He looks so much older now.

  11. Oh. Apparently I should have read Alicia's comment before publishing. Now I just sound like a broken record ;)

  12. It's amazing how much that first hair cut changes their look and makes them look older. He's got such a cute little face.

  16. Danee's have grown back - she has the same type of curls in back that get all crazy when left to their own devices... And I was just noticing the other night, that they're due for a second trimming. So Ollie's will probably be back too!

  17. I actually think he looks younger with the cut...I might be crazy though. I love baby/little boys with short haircuts!! As a hairstylist I must say they might not come back

  18. When I cut off Mitch's curls (because this lady said what a beautiful little girl) I called Leon at work sobbing. He thought something horrid had happened. When I told him I was crying because I cut Mitch's hair he was ready to send me to the funny farm. He wasn't sympathetic. At all.

    Oliver looks so much like Owen did at that age.
