Nearly Wordless Wednesday - Angel Fluff

His first haircut. I waited as long as I could. That soft angel fluff brushing his chubby neck; how many times a day did I bury my nose there?


Some of you know exactly what I mean.

And I remember having a baby boy a few years back transformed into a little boy by a few small snips. I was sad about this milestone for my Bear.


He was not convinced himself that this was a good plan.

He remained concerned, but allowed it to continue.



When he decided he'd had enough, he received his first sucker. After that we could have shaved his head. He was all about the sucker.


And here is my little boy! And his hair still smells like it's fresh from Heaven.


And he does look a wee bit older.


They say the curls are usually gone after that first cut.


But look:


Bear's curls are undaunted by our attempts to shear them!

Adorable pics! I love your blogs - read it everyday. The first haircut makes you feel like the "Baby" phase is over and you have moved right into "Toddler" phase. It's sad, but must be done and you have my sympathy! Thanks for a great blog!!

Why, oh why couldn't my daughter's curls stay? Oh, I cried and cried when my son cut off my dd's curls cause "she asked him too." They never grew back. Golden blonde ringlets.

Nice pics and cute kid. I know it's hard to stand there for that first haircut. But don't worry. Someday it will get to be thin angel fluff, again.
