The curls are gone! Well, most of them anyways. We were out of town this past weekend and when I woke up Saturday morning, Bear's hair had formed five dreadlocks in the back. I had finally had it. So, we took him to Sharkey's that evening and had the beautiful curls cut off. (Although, when the hairstylist was able to comb the dreadlocks out, I was VERY tempted to grab my baby and run!!!) The good news is, his short hair is very wavy, so I have hope that the curls will return. And in case anyone is wondering - his Daddy and I did fine. Bear's new look is taking a little getting used to, but I think he's still as cute as a bug and maybe even a little more handsome :-).
Before (you can see the knots in the second pic):
I took several pictures during the process. He didn't get upset until the lady kept pulling on his hair while combing it.
Here's his "Mommy can't you help me" look:
See, the curls are still there!!
Big Sister also had her nails done after helping little brother through his first hair cut!
