Sam's first haircut

Dear Sam,

Today you got your hair cut for the first time. You were 15 months old.

Before: We have never cut your hair, and you've got a nice head full of it. Not only does everyone think you're a girl, you can hardly see past those bangs. It's kind of has an 1980s Asian pop star look.

During: You started out great, liked sitting in the little car, and didn't flinch when she spritzed your hair with water and started cutting. It also was your first exposure to this thing called "Elmo." You seemed intrigued, since the only TV we let you watch is sports and PBS's "The News Hour."

Alicia from KidSnips (owned by my friend Sabrina's cousin) was good at cutting hair on a moving head.

But when she turned on the blow dryer to drown out the sound of the clippers, she lost her happy client. You didn't mind the clippers' sound, but hate loud noises like vacuum cleaners, blenders and blow dryers.

Mama had to hold you for the last part of the haircut.

After: I think the balloon was your favorite part of the day. Mama cried a bit because her baby is gone, replaced by a very handsome big boy.

OMG!!!! He is so cute. Yes, he does look like a little boy now and no longer a baby. So glad we got to see him yesterday. Love Auntie Amy & cuzzy Clare. (the whole family ran downstairs to see the photos!)

Oh my God Heidi!!! He;s grown so much :) He looks so handsome. Let me tell you, he was about a thousand times better than Nico everytime he gets his haircut. We do it at a place similar to Kidsnips with videos, cars, etc, but he screams through the WHOLE thing. He doesn't even like to sit in the car and I have to hold him. So, I envy you and admire Sam...maybe he can teach Nico it's OK. Good to hear from you guys Maria, William and Nico

AWWWWW....he looks so handsome!!! We are no where near the need for a haircut LOL

Coby is also terrified of the vaccum cleaner and will jump at loud noises....

He is so cute! He really does look older with the new haircut. Hope all is well on your end. Hopefully I'll be around on your next office visit.

He has a great haircut!! I was helping my friend cut her little boys hair last week - his first hair cut at 11 months - she managed to tweak a little off the front and that was it! He's going for the rock star look!
