My little boy's first haircut

Like Lila, Brighton has a TON of hair. Unlike Lila we didn't think we could wait until he was almost three to do it. His hair was starting to get in the way and kind of always look messy (but adorable) so the morning of his birthday party we decided to cut his hair before church. I was really sad to do it, but I knew that it needed to be done eventually so why not then?

Something I have always loved about Brighton's hair is that it's pretty dark, I would say brown, and had curls coming in at the back. He was just the handsomest little boy in the world! 

We started to cut his hair and right away I kept thinking, "what are we doing?!" By the time it was done I was sad. It didn't look bad at all, but he no longer looked like a little baby. In fact, he definitely looked like a little boy! My baby was gone! 

Also, his hair is SO blonde now. :( Don't get me wrong… I love blonde hair, but the darker hair was something that I felt like he got from me.

During: Sorry it's so blurry

 After:

I do love his hair now, but I still miss his baby hair. I feel that way about Lila's hair, too, though. 

Oh well, I guess they have to grow up sometime right? It just feels like it's happening so fast. Who knew I'd get so emotional over a haircut. :)
