The one where my baby turns into a big boy

It was officially time.
Time for this mama to let go and take Jamie in for his FIRST haircut.
He'd been called a girl more times than I could count and his hair was always in his eyes.
I wasn't so sure how this was going to go.
Telling an almost one year old to sit still while a woman you don't know yields sharp instruments near his head had me a nervous wreck.
I mean, we already have one scar in the works, vision of number 2 were dancing in my head.
I did a little googling and found a kids only place nearby.
Chairs that look like cars and people who deal with squirmy kids all the time?!
Score!
So Friday night after work the three of us trekked over to the salon to turn my baby into a BIG boy!

Hi mom!  I'm ready!

Mom, this place is sweet! Beep, beep!

Ummm.  Excuse me.  Do I know you....you're kinda interrupting my drive time here lady.

Hold on.  Let me adjust my mirror.  I need to get a better look at what exactly you're doing.

Oh hi mom! Wait, why are you holding my hands....

Please stop touching me.  There aren't enough race car chairs in the world to get me to sit still any longer.
Can we be done now?

What just happened mom....
Jamie lived up to his busy boy ways and wiggled a lot, but she somehow managed to get it done.
And look!  You can actually see those gorgeous baby blues now!
Here he is modeling his outfit for his 1 year pictures....complete with tags still attached.  LOL.
I think I'm going to be in trouble with this one!
I mean really?!?  He looks like he's 1 going on 16!

Look how much hair he has (er, had)! Ethan is still a little baldy. I love his new cut, but yes, he looks so grown up. Make them stop growing so fast!!! Can't they be babies forever?
