Mason's First Haircut

Mason may only be 4 months old, but his hair was getting a little funky. With Bree, I've never thought of cutting her hair because she's a girl. But Mason had these few hairs in different spots on his head that were like 2 inches longer than the rest of his fuzz. So I decided to get out the scissors. Now, cutting the hair of a baby is no small feat. He's constantly wiggling and moving his head back and forth, so it's actually kind of dangerous. With a little of Chad's help to hold his head still, we got through it, and the result is a cute, uniformly fuzzy head! As Chad often says, "No boy of mine is going to have long hair!"

My mom brought Bree back home today after watching her for 4 days while we've been sick. My mom told stories of Bree escaping from nursery with the other two girls in there, and running into the chapel and across the stage where the High Priests meet, all the while all three of them screaming at the top of their lungs! And then one night when my mom was putting her to bed, she told Bree sternly to get back in bed. Bree saluted, said, "Yes, sir!" and promptly layed down on the bed. I don't know where she gets this stuff! Then today when my mom and she were sitting on our couch, Bree got really close to my mom, looking at her face, and my mom said, "What are you doing?" and Bree looked at her for a minute, then pointed at her mouth and said, "Yellow teeth!" Now, my mom has a beautiful white smile, but I don't think Bree is familiar with the color white yet. We were laughing so hard!

Wow Megan, you are so brave! Tucker had long enough hair for a tiny pony tail at one point. Not only were his curls adorable and I knew once I cut them they'd never grow back, I was also terrified that I'd some how injure him.

Love Mason's eyes!

That photo is so cute. I can't believe you are already having to cut his hair!

Hey, have you read Stephanie Meyers' new book, The Host! I love it. I liked it better than Twilight. AND are you on Good Reads? Of all my friends, I would be interested to see what you read.

Mason is sooooo cute! You did a great job with his hair! Jordan and I gave Johnny his first hair cut and he looks so funny. His bangs are way too short.. like Loyd from the movie Dumb and Dumber. So every time I look at him the phrase "you pumpkin pie hair cutted freak," (lovingly)comes to mind

I love the picture of Mason! He's adorable. Good job on the haircut. Admittedly, Carson goes to the barber with Mike because I'm afraid I'll cut him or give him a really bad haircut, or both. I can't even imagine trying on a four month old!

Great job, Megan! Mason is adorable. I trust you and Chad. You are careful, creative and wonderful parents.
Now how about cutting your mother-in-laws hair. SMILE
Love, Mom Fran
