First Hair Cut

I've been thinking about taking Joey for his first hair cut for a few weeks now. The hardest part has been finding a place to go. My husband's stylist is about 45 minutes away from our house, and mine does my hair out of her home. I probably should've just taken him with me the last time I got mine cut, but I didn't wan to have to deal with keeping him out of trouble while I was getting my hair cut. So this weekend, as I was about to walk into one store, I noticed there was a Great Clips right next door. And in we went.
This is the "pre" shot, so that I can remind you how long his hair used to be. (I guess you could've just looked at the last post, but I'm making it even easier for you.)
Seriously, the kid sat right down in the booster chair and just sat there. Actually smiled with no prompting at the start. I couldn't believe he was going to sit still.
And he did. The whole time. Made a few faces and maybe jerked his head a little, but absolutely no crying. A real trooper. Check out how long the clippings are, too. I don't even think I get that much trimmed when I'm getting my hair cut.
I didn't get a picture of it, but at the end, the stylist even used the trimmers around the his ears. Again, a little jerk of the head to start, but then he was fine.
Here's the end result. Not too short, and it definitely makes him look like a little man now. I can't believe how quickly he's growing up!

Editor's note: Technically, I trimmed his bangs about a month or so ago because they were getting in his eyes and I couldn't constantly be there to brush them to the side. But I'm not really counting that.
