A First

Well, it had to happen eventually, and when I say eventually I mean that I wanted it to happen much later, but it was inevitable. When Gavin was born he didn't have much hair, it was there, but not much, and even as he continued to grow it still didn't grow very much. By four months it was still quite short but he was growing so fast. EVERYONE has been telling me that he needs a haircut for quite some time now. But, I just couldn't bring myself to do it, I told Zac it was the only baby piece of him that I had left. And then about two months ago I was watching Tori & Dean Home Sweet Hollywood and it was their little boy Liam's third birthday and he got his 1st haircut! Ok, now that is a little extreme, but I didn't feel so bad that Gavin hadn't had a haircut yet. I think in the last two or three weeks Zac has mentioned cutting Gavin's hair at least once a day. And then Gavin turned 10 months on Friday, and by Saturday Zac wasn't giving me the option anymore. So I did it, I cut Gavin's hair (tear), so at 10 months old my baby has his first haircut and he looks so grown up now that I can't stand it. As much as I was trying to keep him looking like a baby it is all gone now. But, I hope to everyone's delight, he now has a haircut.
Earlier in the day at the park, and FYI, Zac got a haircut that night too. :)
Just before I cut his hair, he was asleep and Zac thought he would sleep through it, I knew otherwise and of course he woke up right away.

Just after. You can tell that he was very unhappy with me and cried through the whole thing. It certainly isn't perfect, but it is a huge difference.

I have so much to do in getting ready for Halloween that time is going to fly by and before we know it Gavin will be 1!

We were watching Playhouse Disney this morning and he was standing right in front of the TV like always when Choo Choo Soul came on. I looked down and Gavin was tapping his right foot to the beat of the music, seriously! It was the cutest thing. This boy LOVES to dance and listen to music, I have feeling he is really going to enjoy nursery when he finally gets there.


  1. Oh goodness! He is growing up sooo fast!! He looks very cute with his new haircut though, good job!! Can't wait to see you guys at Thanksgiving!! Love you!!

  2. You're brave to cut his hair, Chels. It looks great! Hard to let go of the "baby", but fun to see how fast he is growing :)
