First Haircut

Today was Claire's first haircut. 

And there are NO pictures of this not-so-fabulous occasion. 

Claire is usually pretty easy going, but I think I had a few too many things going for her this week.  With the shots and the blood draw recently, she was completely opposed to someone she didn't know in her space. 

I got her settled in the chair and she cried, no howled, through the whole two minute ordeal.  We got her bangs trimmed, and some of her long top hair evened out with her shorter underneath hair.  It's not quite as short as I'd like it, but it was as good as it was going to get. 

And that reminds me....she has an eye doctor appointment tomorrow.  I wonder how that is going to go??


  1. Aww poor baby! I am sure it's a scary thing really....forced to sit down in a chair, sharp weapon pointed at your head...I mean...if you look at it from her perspective...it's pretty darn bad!


    Lets see what the eye doctor bring tomorrow :) Praying for an easier appointment!

  2. Aww, claire!! I do want to see photos of her new do! We haven't gotten Grady's cut yet and yes he has a rat tail in the shower, its getting desperate! She is getting SO BIG! Love to you all!

  3. Poor, sweet, little love.But I bet she looks darling.

    I remember taking Zoey for her first haircut after chemo,because,in case you didn't know, she never lost it!Anyway, we go and she is freaking out and all of the sudden I realize that the tray they have looks JUST like a medical procedure tray!Poor girl. Took her months and months to get over her hospital trauma.

  4. Can't wait to see pictures of her new do! Sutter HATES getting his hair cut...he screams the entire time and it takes both Rich and I to hold him down and get it done. Good luck with the eye appt! :)

  5. Russell needs a haircut soon too, but I am dreading it!!! Last time he would NOT sit still and ended up with the WORST haircut ever!!! lol...Good luck with the eye appointment today...And post some pics of Claires new do!

  6. Steve brought Paris in to get his haircut a while back and he came back with a mullet. No.lie. Steve had stopped the dude mid haircut because both Paris and Steve were strokin out during the event...Needless to say he brought our poor mullet wearing child to a different barber the next day and it was fixed. I feel for you sista. Claire doesn't have a mullet, does she? It's all good then.

    P.S. Paris is due up for another cut. Look.Out.World.

  7. WOW! I still have not been brave enough for Maddie to go get her hair cut...she needs it..but I am just scared! I have been doing it myself and it has not been turning out so great! I make Chad take Maddie to the eye doctor...hope it all goes well! smiles

  8. I don't have any pictures of Arina's first haircut either. Although she didn't scream, I had to sit and hold her head still. That girl doesn't sit still for 5 seconds!

  9. Jesenia's first haircut was back in February when we went to Georgia and then I chopped it off a few months back because it was all sorts of crazy lengths. I would like to take her in and have something done to it. Julian told me today that I always put it in a ponytail. I have some really cute clips but I don't want those to go to the sitters!

  10. Oh Claire Bear! I can just imagine the howling. I get that just with combing Ellie's hair and washing it. I cannot wait to see pictures of your cutie pie. prayers that all goes well with the eye doc tomorrow.

  11. The first hair cut is such a mile stone. They go from being a baby to a toddler. They look so big.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what is on your mind.
