Braden's First Haircut

This evening Braden got his first haircut! He needed it, too, he was our little mullet boy. You can't really appreciate how long his hair was in these pictures, just trust me, it was getting close to little girl long.

There was no special fanfare; we all just crammed ourselves into our tiny downstairs bathroom. My mom, Braden, and I sat on the floor, Matt took pictures while sitting on the toilet, I cut Braden's hair, Braden wore a Target bag to collect the clippings, and my mom fed Braden pineapple sorbet to keep him preoccupied.

His hair was REALLY long.

Braden could not figure out why Matt was taking so many pictures and kept looking up at the camera (which made cutting his hair pretty difficult).

It worked out pretty well, though.

We all had a good time and Braden now looks like we've actually taken the time to groom him. I even saved his hair clippings in a dated envelope and put it in our fire safe. :)

Braden's fixation with the camera may have made the hair cut difficult, but it made for some really cute pictures!

Kaylen had a mullet whe she was little it was really bad... we called her Billy ray.
