baby hair.

Friday, Tony and I decided to cut Easton's hair. We were nervous and excited....


I did my best not to cry. I failed miserably. Almost as soon as those locks started to fall, tears began to roll down ma face. Easton did great! He was a little squirmy but never cried. He took his hair cut like a... toddler. I think the hardest part of this experience (for me) was two fold: he lost just a little more "baby-ness" as his hair hit the floor and his hair cut revealed something I never thought it would...


The back of Easton's hair looks exactly like my daddy's. It's amazing how much Easton looks like my dad from behind- they have the same ears, the calic on the back of their head is identical, even the texture of their hair is the same. He is starting to look like a mini Joe. This is both fantastic and incredibly emotional for me (I literally started sobbing outside the barber shop as soon as I noticed this resemblance). 

Enough about me....


We took Easton to a [proper] barber shop in Willow Glen called Unique Stylez. Tony has been going there for quite some time and absolutely loves the atmosphere. I can envision Easton and Daddy going to get their hair cut on Saturday mornings for the rest of Easton's childhood (and maybe even adulthood) at this place. The men are smartly dressed, it's loud, they have free Twinkies, and you feel like you've stepped into the movie Barber Shop as soon as you walk through the door.


Jim cut Easton's hair. He was dressed in a tie, tie clip, vest, dress shoes, and slacks. What a great example to set for my little guy....he dresses up for his job! I love that!!!!


I wanted so badly to wait until Easton hit two years old before we cut his hair, but it was starting to look like a mullet. I couldn't bare the mullet.
