Luke's First Real Haircut!

We've tried off and on for two months to schedule Luke's first haircut. It's as if he sensed it, and as just as an appointment day arrived, he'd have a fever or be particularly cranky because of teething. Darn it! But yesterday, there were no excuses, and the deed was done!

It all started with getting him aboard his taxi. I mean, he could sit in a car and watch TV - this can't go wrong, right?

Basically, throughout the process, Luke alternated between reaching out for me in tears and getting momentarily engrossed in the Elmo video. All in all, it was nowhere near as bad as I expected.

Getting our hair wet and ready to cut:
Starting the trim:
"Make it stop, Daddy!"

Just about all done!
Finally, here he is celebrating (and enjoying some Goldfish crackers) at Kincaid's, where Honey, Grand, and Granny joined us for burgers. Doesn't he look so handsome?
Now we're getting set to enjoy a three-day weekend and, hopefully, a second Cowboys' playoff win! Have a great weekend, everyone!

It's called Cool Cuts 4 Kids. It's in Southlake in the Kohls shopping center (behind Anamias and next to the Gymboree play place). Downside is that it was expensive - $18. Pretty ridiculous (but then again, like I was going anywhere near Luke's head with a pair of scissors... eek!).
