Creed Gets A Haircut

It's kind of hard to capture Creed's hair on film because it's so white, but trust me when I say this kid was getting shaggy. The top was too long to stay up in a mohawk and when he wore baseball hats, he had a little ponytail sticking out of the hole in the back so it was time for a haircut. I've trimmed his hair in the past, but it's so hard to get him to hold still that I decided it was time to let a professional do the job.

Here's the before. Doesn't seeing him sitting with that cape on, sucking on his binky, just make you smile? I thought he would be kicking and screaming, especially when it came to the clippers, but he was so absorbed in the Baby Einstein DVD they put in for him that he didn't mind most of the time.
And here's the final product.
It ended up a little shorter than we wanted, but I still like it. Larry and I are both shocked at how grown up he looks with shorter hair.
Truth be told, he really has grown up a lot lately. He's picking up new words all of the sudden and loves to parrot different noises. He loves the Count on Sesame Street and says, "Ah, ah, ah" just like him. It cracks me up.
He's been having a fun summer spending lots of time at the park and out in his little wading pool. Even though he doesn't say a lot of words, he says a couple of phrases like, "I did it!" and "What that?" and the other morning when I started to lay down while he was playing he looked at me and clearly said, "Mama, no no no!"
And now when you ask him questions and he doesn't know the answer, he does this.
He's only 16 months old so why does he suddenly seem so grown up?

I LOVE it when they start to talk! PJ says the funniest things: "Hum on mommy, let's find out!" and "Daddy go change clothes really quick!" Creed's haircut is adorable. We miss you guys!!!

It's both cute and sad how grown up Creed looks with his haircut. I feel like he's going to start looking at colleges now...

He's adorable as always - but growing way too fast. It's amazing how fast this roller coaster ride goes by. One day you're saying, "Why don't you grow up?" and the next day it's "Where did the time go?" He'll be seriously asking for the car keys next week.
The key is to enjoy the ride while it lasts - and don't blink, you'll miss it.
We miss you - Mom Cat

That looks like a cute kid friendly salon. Where did you get his hair cut?

He is so cute and he also reminds me so much of you. It is kind of scary. It's almost like dejavu. (OK, I don't know how to spell that but the correct spelling isn't coming to me and it's the perfect word.) Miss you.

Ok...I am so making an appointment to get Anthony's hair cut. I am such a slacker but I am NOT ready for my baby to grow up. But Creed's hair is so cute, I need to jump on the bandwagon. By the way, the expression on his face in the last photo is sooooo you!

Stephanie-- Creed is sooo cute and so big now. I can't believe how expressive he already is. My husband Lance and I just had a baby girl about 2 months ago. She is the cutest little girl and we absolutely adore her. But, she is growing up too fast. I wish I could keep each moment captured forever. Anyway, we have a family blog at http://themoseskazoku.blogspot.com/.

Love, Jennifer
