He’s all grown up!

Baby EJ’s always had quite a headful of hair ever since he was born. When he was younger, and had shorter hair, we used to style it a little. We didn’t have to use hair gel or anything. We would only have to towel dry his hair after his baths a certain way, and his hair will dry in that style. Mostly, we’d style it like Eric’s. I remembered one time we were out (specifically at Pink’s hotdog in LA) this person sitting at the table next to us said he saw how both EJ and Eric had the same hair, that they must be father and son.

This was when he was about 3 months old.

Then of course with all hair, it grows. This mommy at my Mommy group loves how long his hair was and wished her own daughter had hair like that so she could put pretty bows and ribbons in her hair. Well, I’ve never put bows and ribbons in his hair, but I won’t say that I haven’t put clips in his hair. 🙂

I wonder if this is gonna come back and bite me when he’s older. :p

We started having people ask if he was a girl or a boy. Someone said he looks like a girl, but was wearing boy clothes, so she wasn’t sure if he was a girl or boy. Sigh. Time for haircut.

But if you knew me, it was a much longer time before we actually gave him his haircut! His hair was actually past his eyes already. Finally, we had a free Saturday morning, and the deed was done! We cut his hair!

I quickly watched a Howcast video on how to cut a boy’s hair (which wasn’t very helpful cos this boy had really long hair), said a little prayer and proceeded to cut his hair.

We put on Finding Nemo for him so that he’d be distracted.

Say goodbye to the beautiful baby locks!

He was fixated on the movie. And from the looks of it, so was Eric 🙂 We had Eric sit behind him and hold him. But he got fussy really fast. He didn’t like that snip-snip sound. He tried grabbing my scissors a few times. And finally tried to break out of Eric’s hold.

Well, by that time his hair was mostly cut so I gave up. When I looked at his hair, I almost burst out crying! What have I done to my baby! I gave him a bowl cut!! But he clearly wasn’t in the mood to sit still anymore, so we stopped and gave him a bath.

As I was drying his hair, I reevaluated his hair, and realized I could’ve taken some more off the top so it’d look less like a bowl cut. So, this time, we laid him down to cut. It was actually easier!

And this was the final product. He does look a lot more like a boy now. He looks so grown up. I don’t know about other people, but I kept a small lock of his hair for remembrance sake. That’s not too weird, right?

Eric said next time, he’ll cut. Guess we don’t have a satisfied parent. 🙂

    Bahah. He’s Asian. It’s only right he should have a bowl cut.

    I cut Kyle’s hair, although he was like 17 months before it was long enough. Every time I do it, it gets better and easier. The first few times, it was awful. But it is only hair and EJ’s seems to grow really fast. So luckily you’ll get lots of practice 🙂
