Big day Micah-fans! First haircut! I know, his curls were so stinking cute, but the back part of his hairdo had not caught up with the top and the sides, so we decided to even it out.
We were so lucky to have found the barber that we did - he was awesome with Micah! His name is James and from the moment we walked in the door his focus was keeping Micah happy and making him laugh - which he did quite well. I can't tell you how great it was. Micah is a huge screamer when I comb his hair - I told James that and he showed me the best way to comb it with a metal pick. Micah barely noticed that his hair was being combed. I about fell over.
Anyway - with the help of amazing James and some chocolate & peanut butter Hershey's kisses, Micah did great for his first haircut! He wiggled and squirmed a lot, but did not scream at all. (Kevin and I were sure we were in for a scream-fest!) He only cried a tiny bit at the end.
Here is the "Before" shot with James:
And, here is the slideshow of the whole thing:
(Please notice that in one of those pictures I have chest hair. It's awesome.)
Oh, and this week our big man learned how to clap, took his shirt off his head by himself (after I got the arms out), and has learned how to "wash" his hair, which he does in the bath and out. My sweet boy is growing up! :)
