My First Hair Cut . . . And Mommy Messed it Up!

As you can see from the picture below, Carter has been in need of a haircut. I was in denial of this fact even though I had a number of friends telling me that Carter did in fact need a haircut. I think I was in some crazy mindset that if I cut Carter's hair short I would also be cutting his "babyhood" short and I could not bring myself to do that. So, I came up with a gameplan, I was just not going to cut his hair too short. Well, I messed that one up. I took one swipe at his hair, realized indeed how short it was going to be and started freaking out and made Matt finish it up so that I would not be the only one to damage little Carter's "babyhood." Now with a good three inches plus shorter hair, he is looking pretty handsome and yes a little bit older.

Before:



Both Matt and Carter got their haircut. Afterall, men have to stick together.

After:

Tahdaa!!



I think he likes it. :)

OH MY GOSH! HE LOOKS SO CUTE! I LOVE THE HAIRCUT! I felt exactly the same way about Jake's hair! You get so excited for every milestone and so sad too because it is going WAY too fast!

His hair looks so cute! I didn't exacly have a choice to wait very long. Jack's hair was about 3-4 inches long when he was born. So, we are going on haircut number 6 in about a week. Don't worry, he still looks so adorable!

Oh, Amber! I totally feel for you because I know exactly what you mean. Tyler was sporting quite the mullet by the time we cut his hair. It's just so sad, but they do look so stinking cute when they're done, huh?! Carter looks so handsome with his new do (okay, all right, and Matt does too...). You did a great job, as always!

What a stud. Carter is adorable. Evan is starting to grow more hair in. It will be crazy to actually cut it some day!

Amber and Matt, at first I only saw the first two pics. I sat there and I thought that you were crazy because his hair looked exactly the same. I felt like an idiot when I scrolled down and saw the rest of the pics. Your two man are handsome! Especially the big one.
