I've been holding off on getting Kiel his first haircut for far too long. I just wasn't ready to cut off his curls. But we had long passed the point of the curls being cute to anyone but his Mama.
We had reached the "business in the front, party in the back" point a couple months ago. But I still couldn't part with those curls! Then I caught a look at him the other day. He was wearing a button down short sleeve shirt and the sleeves had managed to creep up to his shoulders. With the long hair in back, and the sleeveless look going on, he was starting to look a little southern rock (if you want to look at it positively) or white trash (if you wanted to be honest).
So Saturday we drove to the local kids salon, where Noah and Kiel took a ride together.
And the awesome part of it is that the curls may be gone, but the swirl is still there! There are pictures of the swirl here from a year ago, when he was seven months old.
