Hacked (aka John's Loon Story)

John didn't get to go skiing, but he did love the snow.

He pretty much loves anything that he is allowed, even encouraged, to throw at his sisters!

Unfortunately for John, that is where the fun ended.

The camel's back finally broke on the plane ride to New Hampshire when some well-meaning gentleman complimented Brad on his beautiful little girl.

Daddy demanded a haircut!

And my sis, who has been wanting to cut John's hair for a year now, was all too happy to oblige Brad in this area.

And luckily, Catie is pretty talented with a pair of shears. Because John was determined to stop her from hacking off his beautiful baby curls!

He almost succeeded! It actually took two days to complete the haircut. He became so hysterical during the initial attempt, one would have thought we were scalping him we decided to give him a break to sleep on it.

Three lollipops were clearly not enough to make this experience bearable.

But after a good night's sleep, he seemed to have forgotten the previous night's torture forgiven Aunt Catie and allowed her to finish giving him his haircut.

He looks so handsome and grown up now!

And it only took mommy three days, to stop being startled by the sight of him!

Holy Moly...he's such a big boy now. I'm still mourning the curls, though. :)

It is amazing the change that it makes. He is such a big boy. I can see the terror on his face, poor guy, but it was all worth it.

Oh he is still so cute! And yes the day eventually does have to come.

Krystyn said...

Oh, the horror!

But, he sure looks super duper cute..and such a little boy.
