I've been debating when I should take the babies for their first haircut for some time, and after Brady's mullet seemed to take on a life of its own I decided it was time. We've been taking a lot of after dinner walks around the neighborhood with our new wagon and it has been a great way to meet our new neighbors who are also outside. I was joking with one of our new neighbors Natalie, who I had just met, that I needed to take poor Brady for a haircut. She then said, "That is what I do for a living! I have a studio in my house, let me give you my card." What luck! We have a habit of living near some really talented people. First our great friend/neighbor and amazing photographer Carlea lives in the townhouse right next to our old one, and now we live on the same street as a talented hair stylist!
Since my Mom is in town I thought it would be a good opportunity to take advantage of the extra set of hands to hold or entertain babies and scheduled an appointment with Natalie at 2:30 this afternoon. I was a little nervous because I wasn't sure how the babies would react to having their haircut and I was hoping they would be good for our new neighbor. They were completely patient and calm the whole time! I was pleasantly surprised to say the least! Here are some fun Before and After pictures:
BEFORE BRADY: This is his "Phil Mickelson" mullet as we liked to call it. It was MAJOR.
BRADY AFTER: He looks like such a little man now!
CHLOE BEFORE: Her hair was less extreme, it just needed a little trim here and there.
CHLOE AFTER: All nice and neat now!
Here is a cool picture of Natalie's neat in-house hair studio! It was awesome!
Here is the back of both babies' heads AFTER:
Grandma was a HUGE help and held Brady the whole time during his haircut. No one cried or even whined, I was so proud!
Have a good night everyone!
