1st Haircut

It was time. Henry had a few really long first baby hairs that were out of control, and he was starting to look a little shaggy. We decided on a whim to take him to one of those hair cutting places for kids--you know the ones---they had chairs shaped like cars, TVs everywhere, and odd (but yummy) cookie dough scented hair gel. Also, the entire place was decorated much like The Max, the cool hangout of the Saved By the Bell kids. It was a little bizarre and fun.

I wanted Henry to have a faux hawk (the sterotypical Asian cool-boy hairdo thanks to Angelina's little Maddox), but his overall lack of hair growth prevented it. Poor kiddo--he has the same hairline as his balding daddy. Hopefully we'll see some more hair coming soon. Anyway, he ended up with just a shorter, trimmed up haircut with the hair on top a tad bit longer. I've been putting a dab of gel in it and spiking up the middle portion a bit. Not a faux hawk, but very cute. He seems to enjoy all this new hair grooming. He likes to brush and comb his hair lately and also gets excited when he sees the gel bottle coming (in keeping with the late 80's-early 90's vibe, we use Dep, of course!).

Pre-haircut with Daddy

This is the point during the haircut when we had to
resort to giving him a cell phone to play with.

It ended up shorter than this on top, but I
thought he looked so cute this way.

The end result. Is it just me, or does he look underwhelmed?

Good side view. Overall, pretty cute!

I think he is channeling a thought to his aunt Debi, "I came to this cool place and all I gotwas hair gel- what the heck?"

Henry, my darling, sometimes it is simply about the trip, not your destination. And u look fabulous on your trip, babe!
