Ryan Gets a Haircut

Yesterday, at long last, I finally took Ryan to get his hair cut. While we treated this occasion like his first hair cut, it was obvious he had had his haircut before. But it was a first for us with him so out came the camera. Come to think of it, the camera takes pictures of all kinds of things most people wouldn't take pictures of so I guess this was nothing unusual.

I took him to Sports Clips because my older boys love Sports Clips so maybe a tradition has started. Plus I didn't need an appointment because forgetting to make appointments is one of my few many faults. We showed up and signed him in and waited about 10 minutes before he was called back. When he went back he was followed by his entourage-- me, Jenna and Emma. I think by now most of you realize I usually travel with an entourage. That's how I roll.

{Note to self: Remove Alvin and the Chipmunk DVD from the van's DVD player immediately!}



Ryan sat in the chair, although unsure about what was going on. He wasn't sure he liked the cape but didn't up any protest. I was somewhat surprised since I had taken him to get a Halloween costume and he recoiled at the sight of a costume with a cape, even after I tried the cape on myself to show him how cool it was. Then again, maybe that's why he didn't want it in the first place. Really, nothing says "cool" like your mom wearing a size 2T cape in Target!

Ryan didn't like getting his head sprayed with water but sat still for the haircut.

Mom, if you take just one more picture!!!

Just a few finishing touches...

And then blow dry the loose hair on the back of his neck. He's not crying here just showing his obvious displeasure.

Suckers made everything better! He and Jenna outside afterward. See, he almost has a smile!

He is just too cute.
He reminds me so much of my oldest son when he was little, not sure why.

Ugh.
Child torture.
I am so turning you in.

I am looking forward to cutting Jin Pei's hair myself, right along with Daddy's, because it's just the clippers for both of them -- both of them have hair that grows STRAIGHT UP!!!
ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!

So us *girls* will have our super-long hair, and the boys will trail along behind us with their shaved heads, carrying our shopping bags....
All will be right with the world.

STILL waiting for Jin Pei...

Great story and what adorable kiddos you have!

My little guy is almost 7 months old and has needed a haircut for quite some time...but I'm holding off; I just can't do it yet.
