Drew's First Haircut

I have been so sentimental about cutting Drew's hair. I just dreaded chopping off those sweet little curls in the back. But... all good things must come to an end, right? Wade started referring to his hair as "shag-adelic", so it became apparent that a haircut was in order. :(


I took him to Pigtails & Crewcuts today, and they did a really good job. He got to sit in an airplane and watch Clifford during his haircut. They were quick and efficient, which I appreciated with my busy little man. We were in and out in just 15 minutes.

One last picture of those precious curls...


Watching Clifford




He wasn't crazy about the clippers.

He looks so old now. Sniff, sniff...



He got a certificate and lock of hair for his Baby Book.


I held it together pretty well and never went into a full on ugly cry. I felt myself tear up a bit when the first curl was clipped off, but I was able to keep my composure. He looks so much older now! He is awfully handsome, though, if I do say so myself. :)

For nostalgia's sake, here's a picture of Clayton getting his first haircut...

and now he is about to turn 5! Seriously, where does the time go?!?!

Drew looks more and more like Clayton! Drew is looking so grown-up. Clayton's birthday will be bitter sweet-growning older and more mature but getting to hurtle another mile stone.

Oh my! I would be so sad too! Clayton was the cutest baby EVER! Drew does look so grown up. He's gone from cute to handsome in one snip!
