Holden gets a haircut

Holden got his first haircut. It was bittersweet, really. Joe and I had convinced ourselves that Holden's hair would get fun if we let it grow out a for awhile. We were kidding ourselves. Holden had some seriously crazy Nick Nolte baby hair. (For those of you that may be unfamiliar with Nick Nolte baby hair, here it is.) Holden's hair had taken on a life of its own, so we cut it. The hairdresser assured us that once we got rid of all the fine, wispy baby hair, it would grow in faster, and fuller...and, maybe, more surfer boy-esque. But definitely less Nick Nolte mugshot-esque. Here is a before shot: Holy shag. Holden didn't even flinch while having his haircut. It was like he was meant to be styled professionally.
I finally gave him a lollipop - not as a distraction, but as a "mom will be sad if you don't get to have your first lollipop and your first haircut simultaneously" maneuver. These things are meant to go hand in hand.

Needless to say, he liked the lollipop.The final product, WITH some product.
He's totally cute. And if there were any women who thought he was adorable before he got his haircut - look out. He is an official heartbreaker now.

Oh. My. God.

What a ladykiller!!

And can I just say, I am very, very glad that Nick Nolte joke has such a long shelf life. That makes me very happy.

I really didn't think he could get any cuter but with that new haircut? yeah. He did it.
