a big day for the little mo

IMG_7846on tuesday, moses had his first haircut!

yep, we caved.

i’ve shared on this blog several times that both ian and i are obsessed with moses’s darling wispy ginger hair and that we were struggling with the idea of cutting any of it off. a couple of times we resolved to go ahead and give him a trim but within hours we would backpeddle and say we should wait, at least until his birthday. it’s a really silly thing, i know, but something about him getting a haircut just made us both feel like he was growing up too fast!

but last week we decided once and for all that his hair was just too scraggly – it was constantly in his eyes and going wild around his ears. before we could change our minds, i made an appointment for him at a children’s clothing shop that has a little haircutting area. i promised ian i would keep every peice of hair that was cut off and that i would send him lots of pictures!

i seriously had a pitt in my stomach when we arrived for little mo’s appointment – haha! but our kind and sweet hairdresser did exactly as we requested and was awesome at helping to keep moses relatively still and happy. and just like that – milestone completed and no more hair in baby’s eyes!

mo even got his hair blowdried, which was for sure his favourite part – that and the watching the fishies in the aquarium in front of his cool salon chair!

  1. Well done on having Moses's hair cut, he looks lovely with his new hair cut:)

    Did you keep all thee hair, if so are you going to put it in his memory book?

    Hope all 3 of you haven't suffered too much with the hot weather. Did any of you find it hard to sleep?

    At least you can say you were in London on the hottest day June day since 1976 - 40 years ago, I remember it well - on the longest day of the year.

  2. He is absolutely darling! I cannot believe how well-behaved he was for his haircut. (Or at least it appears that way.) thanks for sharing!

  6. Little Mo is the cutest! I hope you were able to keep all of his hair!

    This has nothing to do with your current post but I a have also been following another Mormon blogger and she and her little family (with a nearly one year old girl) remind me a lot of you- maybe you know them: http://welltraveledwife.com

  7. That little Mo has to be the most adorable, precious boy. He looked like he sat right up there being a big boy! What a trooper. He has the best expressions on his face and seems like the happiest and most delightful child!
