Xion’s First Haircut

So many firsts keep coming and going. It’s strange because it seems like just yesterday we were panicking at the hospital trying to figure out how to put Xion in his car seat so they’d let us take him home. Oh, the things we have become pros at in such little time. (We can get him in that car seat in 11 seconds flat.)

Mr. Pickles’ hair was getting pretty wild, but Woz wanted to wait as long as possible for his first haircut. She wasn’t quite ready for him to look like a little man instead of her baby anymore. It was undeniable, though, that his bed head wasn’t just first thing in the morning and that it was time to get a trim. Mommy gave the go ahead and we three Flints headed over to Knockouts for Men (owned by Russ’ uncle) to experience yet another milestone for our little boy.

He had no idea what to make of all the commotion at first.

Hey, what’s going on?! You said we were going for ice cream!

You’re doing a good job, Jackie. Just don’t give me the Bieber and I’ll make sure you get a good tip!

Getting some help from daddy.

I think ice cream would have been more fun!

The finished ‘do.

They call this the Mr. Pickles cut.

So there you have it. And yes, Mommy shed a few tears but we were sure to scoop up his little locks for his baby book. Looks like he’s really no longer a baby. 😦

  1. Long hair or short, Mr. Pickles pulls off the “I’m always adorable” look quite well. 🙂

    That first hair cut is so hard on Mom, isn’t it? It took me a couple of weeks before I was okay with the shorter ‘do on my little guy – I kept looking at him and having to do a double-take because he looked so different! Xion looks great!

  3. awww… sweet! 🙂 love how you documented this. Xion is such a cool name!
