So on Monday, I strapped him into his highchair, handed him a spoon to play with, and did my best to give him a little trim. I quickly learned that a spoon was not nearly enough incentive to hold still; he kept twisting around to look at the scissors, or try to grab them. I ended up having my sister do her best to entertain him, and I handed him Cheerios one at a time to play with. I didn't want to mix food and hair, but whatever. It worked.
I ended up fixing it again an hour or so later (after I took these pictures), because it was pretty uneven in the front (that hardest place to cut because he would notice me and look up at me as I tried to hold his hair). But after another attempt, it now looks much better. And also maybe makes him look slightly older, more like a little toddler boy than a baby, but that could just be the fact that he's getting pretty close to being a year old. His hair grew in so quickly these past few months, I'm pretty sure I have a lot of little boy haircuts in my future.
