CK’s First Haircut

May 7, 2012 | By More

Since Caden is finally over the virus he caught last week,  we decided to take him to get his first haircut yesterday. There is a place right by our house called Snip It’s. It’s specifically for kids so we thought this would be the best place to go. I’m not going to lie my stomach was in knots when we were leaving the house. And I really don’t know why. I wasn’t sad that we were getting his haircut, I really don’t know what it was. But it surprised me that I would feel nervous or anxious about cutting his hair. Anyways as soon as we got in the door I was completely fine and the knots were gone.

The whole experience went better then I could have ever imagined. Caden sat in the chair all by himself the entire time. She had some toys for him to play with and she put on a movie for him to watch while she cut his hair.

He did so well. I’m one proud mama. And the hair stylist was awesome! She took only a little bit off his ears and forehead and left the little curls in the back for me. It turned out super cute!

At the end of the cut they give the kids this plastic card and in the front of the salon they have this machine that they put the card in and out pops a toy! Caden ended up getting a duck!

Because it was his first hair cut she put his hair in a little zip lock baggie and gave him a first haircut certificate. (Perfect for his baby book).

I mean seriously, what was I worried about? Look how cute our little man looks!!

Happy Monday!

    His eyes are just gorgeous! And his new haircut looks awesome. Hopefully he can tell Hailey how to relax through a haircut in a few months :)

    SOOOO cute!! We are going to try to take CJ in the next few weeks. CJ’s hair makes CK’s hair look tame. haha :)

      CJ does have some hair! His is curly though so it looks much better! CK had this flip going on but I’m now thinking it was a flip and not a curl! Can’t wait to see pics of CJ cut!

    So cute!! I thinkmeh looks younger now…more like an 11 month old than a toddler ;-)
    That’s great he did so well and I’m sure CK will probably get 4 more haircuts before G even gets his first :-)

  5. So handsome…I agree with Brittany, our little one is so wiggly I am totally nervous for when we have to go get her hair cut!

      I thought the same thing but to my surprise he didn’t move. They do strap him in but he was content just playing with the toys and looking around … thank goodness! :)
