Little Locks

There are some moments in life that change you, moments that change your child. 

This was one of those moments.

One minute my semi-shaggy baby is innocently wondering what Grammie is up to and the next?

He's in for a rude awakening...

After the initial shock, Jackson's nerves settled.

One thing is for sure: there was no shortage of hilarious faces from this dude during his first hair cut.

Finally, a smile...

Just as J was getting fidgety, Aunt Beth caught his attention with pure giggles.

First haircut tantrum averted thanks to her.

If you can't tell, this kid loves laughing with his Aunt Beth. 

Jackson even made his current favorite "ohhh" face for mommy. Love it!

And just like that, my baby was a boy.

  1. Isn't it amazing how a simple haircut changes their looks so much? My baby boy did great with his 1st haircut but his 2nd not so much!!! We used the clippers 2nd time around, HUGE MISTAKE!

  2. It's amazing how much a little bit of hair can make our babies look like boys!

  3. He is seriously adorable! I love his new little look! He looks even more grown up!

  4. this post! Baby J is beyond adorable! Love him! My little babe had his first haircut a month ago, he was 8mos. I wasn't prepared for how emotional I would be. I cried and cried. And then I had a glass of mommy juice (wine). And he looked so grown up. Made me sad. He is precious Erin. You must just be bursting with pride!!

  5. He looks like such a big boy with his new 'do.

  6. Welcome to the "big boy" hair club General! He seriously looks adorable Erin!

  7. oh my gosh my heart melts!!! he is SO cute!! I LOVE that the last picture he seriously does look like a little boy. I haven't seen many pictures of G lately so I don't know if he looks like a little boy now, too. I don't think he has as much hair to cut!! What a cute babe. And I loved loved that you were in the last picture- your hair is long!!! Can't believe I haven't seen y'all in so long...

  8. Oh my goodness! What a wonderful job you did capturing this moment. He is absolutely adorable, honestly!

    I am excited to follow your blog!

  9. GREAT photos, girl! I'm new here and I LOVE the look and feel of your site so far! Off to check out some more posts. Have a wonderful week! xo

  10. Too cute!
    It's funny because I just trimmed Colson's hair the other day. It wasn't worthy of being called a cut (I didn't even take pics) as I only trimmed about a quarter inch off of the front so it wasn't poking him in the eyes, but where did that quarter inch of hair go??? Yep, right into his baby book. His first 'trim' of many. I was kind of sad.
    But your little man looks mighty handsome with his new locks! :o)

  11. So handsome! Hooray for his first haircut!
