Merritt's first haircut (and Momma's too!)

Annoyed that our new hairstylist wants to charge $32.00 for Merritt's "first haircut", I took his little mohawk into my own hands.

We have a new vacuum with a very tasty cord
My first ever attempt at cutting hair wasn't quite as smooth and easy as I had envisioned (what could be so hard about snipping a little bit of baby hair?), but I'm happy with the result.  He turned 10 months old on the 18th and his new 'do let's me visualize an older, less baby-like version of our littlest guy.


  1. $32 that is highway did a great job!

  2. Ha! I know. For a first haircut??? I tried to schedule back-to-back cuts for me and the kids (read: 2 full price cuts, plus a long-term relationship, right?), and they didn't even offer a complimentary one for the baby. Anyway, I'll take him for the real deal when he gets a little more hair. For now, the DIY cut worked like a charm. I just needed to cut a little off the top ;)

  3. $32, wtf?? I pay like $20 at this little neighborhood place for my own hair!

    Congrats on the DIY, LOVE the mohawk!

  4. He looks so much older without his little pointy baby elvis bangs! lol The mohawk looks REALLY good on him! lol How is it dry?

  5. Awww! A haircut already...crazy! It's different with girls, I guess. Neither of my kids have ever had their haircut before. I'm guessing it will be a long while before Addie June needs one...she seems to have gotten her Daddy's curls and it's growing more OUT, than down.
    He looks so adorable with that little mohawk! Definitely like a little boy :)
