Hudson's First Haircut


I probably could have postponed Hudson's first haircut until, umm, forever....
but after nearly three years without so much as a trim, 
I knew that he would benefit from a cute little cut.

So, last week, I took him to see my hair stylist and friend, Sherri.
Before arriving, I explained to him that he was going to get his hair cut. 
At first, he seemed a bit unsure,
but from the moment we entered into the bustling salon, 
he put on his brave face. 

While waiting for our appointment, he happily sat in the cushy velvet couch,
listening to the sounds of snip snip snip from all around,
and waving at the pretty girls who oohed and aaahed about what a cute little boy he was.

When it was time for him to climb up in the chair, 
he was so very sweet,
smiling and politely answering all of Sherri's questions.
His little eyes fluttered as the first snips caused a tiny trickle of hair to tickle his face,
and every time he caught a glimpse of himself in the oversized mirror, 
he looked so happy.
I couldn't have been prouder of my sweet boy.

Hudson's first haircut was a big success,
resulting in the most precious little curly 'do
and no tears.
(from him OR me.)

Oh what a sweet day! I'm so glad he was a trooper for his first hair cut. I love his sweet little curls! Hopefully those will stay. =)

I think my favorite photo is the one of him looking into the mirror with a pouty face. Until you said he was enjoying himself I totally thought he was upset because of that picture. But it's just so expressive!

I am so glad you didn't cut off all those curls. When you said haircut... I thought it might end up like your Hubbys. Wills is nice... but Hudson can wait awhile to have a short cut. His first cut turned out very nice and he was such a little trooper sitting there and not crying.

SERIOUSLY what a little stud muffin :) So glad the hair cut went so great! Hudson's trim look fan-tastic :) and I'm SO GLAD you kept those sweet, golden brown, curls! I feel like I don't know how long Brooks will have his...so I'm totally embracing them while he's got 'em! Looks like you're doing the same with your little man Ashley. :) Yay for firsts! And yay for no tears! (definitely not the case for me...heehee!)

and I must tell you Ash...I really wish we lived closer and we could get together! Then we'd sing to Regina in the car together! ;) Sometimes I'll be busting out to "Samson" or "Eet" when Adam get gets home from work, and he'll say, "Oh, is this that inspector lady??" haha! he's not quite the fans we are ;)

Eva Marie said...

Oh what a sweetie!! His haircut turned out great and he was so good. You should be proud of him!!

A Mop Head said...

Oh so you get his hair cut with out telling me. Well it looks great. I do hope that we can take him to Rogers one day. I will admit though. Sherri did a great job with our little guy. I hope his curls will stay. If he has my dads hair they will.

LOVE YOU!!!
