first haircut!

Yesterday Talmage had his very first haircut EVER!

Goodbye, beautiful golden curly locks...

When Talmage was a baby, his hair was thick and perfect. There was no reason to cut it. He never molted any of his baby hair, and as time went on it got blonder and curlier. I have always loved his curls :) In the last few months, he was starting to look like a girl because it was growing so long, plus it was a pain to wash and dry and detangle every day (even with detangling shampoo!) People mistook him for a girl EVERYwhere we went, which didn't really bug me until just recently. And then I discovered that I could actually give him pigtails. Then, to top it off, Jonathan made the comment that it looked "mullet-ish". I hate mullets on little kids so that was the last straw. I called the hair salon and made an appointment PRONTO :)

While our little guy was getting trimmed, I was across the room getting my own haircut. I'm glad that I was distracted while they cut his hair, because honestly I don't think I would have been able to watch...but the hairdresser did great with him and she even gave him a little mohawk on the top! (I meant to get a picture. oops.) He looked so grown up and boyish! Just when I didn't think he could get any cuter! I loved it :)

It still curls, but the ringlets are gone...this will take a while to get used to but I'm just glad we finally did it.

And here is my new hair. I got bangs :)
(sorry its not a very good pic. That's mac photobooth for you)

I am just SO glad this week is over. October was a crazy busy month and this last week was just as crazy. I am ready to visit with friends, redecorate the apartment and nursery and just take it easy :)

By the way, Talmage got a big boy bed this week! He really likes jumping on it and being silly. And I love how much bigger it makes his room look :)

Note that his hair was still long when we took those pictures...*sigh, sniff sniff*

Have a great weekend everyone!

I wish I could look as good as you do with your bangs. I think the cut looks great on you. Also, Talmage looks a little older. It looks good and I think he'll have his curls a bit longer! You will have to keep me posted on any decor ideas and such, I'm excited to see what changes you make. Your home is always so cute!
And thank you for the help and ALL that you did this last month! I would not have made it without you and the activity would have been a flop.

Oh my gosh! Talmage looks even more handsome and more grown up. It looks great Lindsay. I like the bangs :-)
