We took the baby for his first haircut. I didn't trust myself to trim it at home, and parts of his hair - sparse as it is - were getting too shaggy and messy. We went to Mario, the same barber Matt's gone to his whole life.
It happened so much faster than I thought it would. Within 30 seconds, he was in the chair, sitting on my husband's lap. Cape or no cape? was all I got asked.
Scrambling for my cameras, I barely had time to warn Mario. Just don't cut the hair at the top, only the sides.
It has to be even, he told me.
And then, all of a sudden, I was handed a different(ish) looking baby!
I only teared up a little.
We almost forgot to grab some locks of hair as a keepsake for his baby box. Luckily Matt remembered.
After it was over, we grabbed some Starbucks and went to visit Grandpop. He loved Carter's hair.
Here's some video footage:
