So we broke down today and took Jackson to get his hair cut. It was getting a little long in the back--it hung over his collar and a little bit over his ears (he looked like an old man!) There is a place by our house called Cool Cuts 4 Kids--they have games and little cars and tv and video games! It's so cute! So Jackson got to sit in a yellow taxi cab car and watch the movie "CARS" while the lady snipped his baby hair off! He just sat there like such a good boy. He had a nervous look on his face and his shoulders were up like "what are you doing to me?" but he never cried or screamed. Just sat there staring in the mirror and then at the other kids and then would watch Daddy like "don't leave me here!" Only toward the end did he want out of the chair, but she was good at getting his attention and keeping him in there while she buzzed around his ears (but not before first showing him that strange tool she was using!) They even gave us the cutest little card that has his hair and a polaroid of his "First Hair Cut" for the baby book! And in the end, Jackson got a lollipop that he put right in his mouth, as if he had had one before! (he's never had a sucker--unless one of the grandma's snuck one in!) He looks so handsome now! I love it!
