Haircuts for the Boys

Dave's last professional haircut was the day before we were married, almost 12 years ago. I have been doing it ever since, and have learned to cut the kid's hair as well. I'm not a super amazing stylist, but I do a good enough job and it sure has saved us a lot of money over the years! This week Dave and Davey were ready for trims. They both have hair that is very thick and grows straight forward. It can't be parted or styled very well, so it looks best when kept short, which is perfect for summer. Now the only one who needs a trim is me!

Sophie didn't need a trim, but wanted me to take her picture anyway. Her hair was a little wavy for church since it was in braids the day before. I thought she looked very cute!

The baby also got his first haircut! I wasn't planning on giving Charlie one yet, but while I was setting up the clippers for Davey's trim, I decided it was time to clean him up a bit. Charlie's neck was looking pretty scraggly, and he's been working hard on developing a bald spot, so I thought he would look better if things were evened out a bit. It's always so hard to cut off that soft baby fuzz, but I was happy with the results.

Before and After

Here is a sample of what I shaved off - some of those pieces were pretty long!

And here is a picture of his front side, because it's much cuter than the back of his head
