Well, Mike finally got his way. I loved Aidan's messy baby hair, but Mike was positive it was starting to resemble a mullet. So today, on Mike's birthday, we took Aidan to a cute place called Cookie Cutters haircuts for kids, and came home with an entirely new toddler - yikes!
He got to sit in a little fire engine chair, and they put on an Elmo video for him to watch, which really did work, he was only upset about half the time. Here's his mostly unsuspecting before photo:
And here is Aidan starting to realize he wasn't comfortable with the situation:
This is where he is completely positive that he hates what's going on:
Here the very patient and extremely quick stylist is trying to finish up, after I swooped in to help hold him tight since he decided he was so unhappy he was just going to get up and walk on out of the salon:
And here's a picture of him in the car after he stopped crying!
And finally, here's how he celebrated his new haircut while mom ran to the store and dad was getting ready for work:
All in all, a red letter day. Aidan even drew all over a homemade card for Mike's birthday, since he's now figured out what pens and markers do (Aidan, not Mike). He even scribbled with his left hand, people.
What a birthday present for Mike!
