Time for a trim

Not long after our Charlotte vacation, we decided it was time for Sam's first haircut. Michele's dad was nice enough to trim his sideburns a few months ago, but it was starting to look shaggy all over. I wanted to hold out as long as possible. Something about that first haircut felt like we were crossing a line and couldn't go back.

Emily, a new friend from our church, performed the honors while Sam sat on my lap. Afterwards she gave Sam a snazzy certificate that reads, "This is a real official piece of paper saying that I was real brave and didn't scream or fuss too much when they took me to this place, covered me up with a sheet thing and cut my hair. As of today, I am a BIG KID!"

Very cute Robbie! I can't believe he needed a haircut. It looks like he was very brave.

You have really been posting lately. It looks like I'll have to start checking the blog more often again!

Awww...so cute! Did you save a lock of hair?

Yes, we saved a lock of hair from this cut and the first trim that Michele's dad gave him. The snazzy certificate has an attached baggie where you can store them. Michele's putting it in his baby book!
