I may or may not be shedding a few tears while writing this post. Rusty cut off Blake’s adorable baby hair last night. Rusty thinks it was hair only a mother could love. Sure, it looked a little like a hair piece plopped down on his baby head, and he was almost bald underneath the long top locks, but I just loved it! It was his stand out feature. Rusty’s been wanting to cut it almost since birth, and I finally conceded that it was time. So Rusty got out the clippers and went to work. Blake cried a tiny bit, in contrast to Josh who cried a LOT (not while we cut Blake’s hair, but when we cut his hair). I have to admit Blake looks pretty cute (sorry my pics are not the best, he was very subdued after the trauma 🙂 but it makes him look so grown up. WHY DO BABIES GROW SO FAST????
Then this morning I came down to scoop up the little pile of hair and tie a little ribbon around it for his baby folder (I don’t do books) and Rusty had thrown it in the garbage! Luckily, it was a new liner and the hair was the only thing in it. You better believe I pulled it out and saved it. Was that going too far?
